Frosé – Frozen Rosé Wine Slushies are made with frozen fruit and your favorite wine. These cold and refreshing summer cocktails come together in minutes. VIDEO BELOW!
Hi, friends! How are you? We are bursting with excitement because we are finally breaking ground on our new POOL! After way too many hot, hot, hot Arizona summers, we finally decided to put in a pool. My kids are ecstatic, my husband is eagerly watching the backyard take shape, and I am over here planning ALL the fabulous poolside drinks we can enjoy.
There is no shortage of summer cocktails on this site: Watermelon Mojitos, Strawberry Sangria, Cherry Daiquiris… the list goes on. And now we have the most fabulous fabulous frozen cocktail: Frosé (frozen rosé). It’s like a grown up Icee – fruity, slightly sweet, and dangerously delicious. Here’s how you make it…
How to make Frosé:
- Wine: Obviously, this recipe uses rosé wine, but, I have also made it with sauvignon blanc, pinot grigio, and moscato. I guess technically it’s only “frosé” if made with rosé, but, I say use what you have and use what you like. Choose something light and fruity that is best served chilled.
- Fruit: Here’s where you get to have fun with this recipe. You will want about 6 cups of frozen fruit. For this batch I used frozen watermelon and frozen strawberries (hello, beautiful pink frosé!) You can use any fruit you like (see more below).
- Sugar: For a slightly sweeter frosé you can add a little sugar before blending it up. If you’re using a sweeter wine or really sweet fruit you can skip the sugar.
Place the wine and frozen fruit into a blender and give it a whirl. In a matter of seconds you’ll have a boozy slushie that is ready to be poured into glasses and enjoyed. It doesn’t get much easier than that! Just make sure you plan accordingly and already have your fruit frozen. Or, be like me and keep frozen fruit in the freezer AT ALL TIMES so you can have frosé whenever you want. Speaking of frozen fruit, let’s talk about some flavor combos!
Flavors of Frosé:
- Strawberry and Watermelon (my fave)
- Strawberry and Raspberry
- Raspberry and Peach
- Strawberry and Peach
- Mango and Peach
If you’d prefer only one type of fruit, I recommend strawberries or watermelon. They are sweet, juicy, and the perfect complement to most rosé wines.
Tips for making Frosé:
- Prefer your frosé thicker? Add extra ice to thicken the slushie.
- This recipe makes about 6 drinks. If you want a smaller batch, you can buy a can of wine (don’t judge), and use only a couple cups of fruit. This will make about 2-3 drinks. I’ve found decent canned wine at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods.
- Inexpensive wine is ok. We’re mixing the wine with fruit and a little sugar, so don’t feel the need to pull out expensive wine for this recipe. I think a moderately priced wine works just fine.
