Raise your hand if you’ve been victimized by an overpriced frosé (AKA frozen rosé) this season! Has it been watery, tasteless, melty, and, like $15 dollars?? I know I have and quite frankly I’m sick of it. But fear no more. This easy frosé recipe is about to blow your mind. It’s made using only two ingredients, comes together in under 5 minutes, and is perfectly refreshing for the rest of these hot summer nights.
What is frosé?
Literally my new favorite beverage. Frosé is essentially a rosé slushie…I know. It’s amazing. I’ve tried to make frozen rosé at home before by blending rosé with ice and it’s been incredibly lackluster. It ultimately just ended up tasting like a watered down glass of rosé. Pretty disappointing. But then I learned a trick from one of my friend’s moms (thanks, Amy!) and that trick is subbing out the ice for strawberries.
How to make frosé at home:
You’ll need a blender, a bottle of rosé, and frozen strawbs. That’s it. This frosé recipe will make about 6 servings, but I can almost guarantee you’ll need to double the recipe if you’re drinking with more than a few friends 🙂 Simply throw your strawberries in a high powered blender, pour in your favorite rosé (you can use a cheap one, because the strawberries will make it taste good regardless) and blend.
Because this is a frozen cocktail, it’s best served right away, so we’d recommend making it in batches to keep it from melting on you!
Why make frozen rosé with strawberries?
Whenever a drink recipes called for ice blended right in, swap it out for fruit instead like we did in this frosé recipe. Frozen fruit will give the same volume and icy texture, but add some flavor. This way when your drink inevitably begins to melt in the summer sun, you’ll be left with flavorful strawberry juice instead of water. Plus its a great boost of vitamins, which means this frozen rosé is healthy…right? And if you’re not into strawberries you could swap them out for a different fruit! We hear mangos, peaches, or raspberries are amazing too!
I’ll leave you with a warning to drink in moderation because this frosé goes down a little too easily. Have an amazing weekend and enjoy the rest of these Summer nights with friends 🙂
