Frosty blended cocktails are a go to for me during warm months. I especially love that I can get in some real frozen fruit instead of sugar filled mixes! My frozen wine slushie recipe or wine popsicles are other fabulous ways to mix up flavors!
The base of this rose slushie drink is super simple, it uses the following
- Your favorite rosé wine
- Frozen strawberries
- Lemon juice
- You can also add some sugar if you prefer
Picking the best rose for frose
Choosing the right wine for frozen rosé is merely a matter of personal taste. You obviously need to use a rosé wine, since you are making a rosé slushie, but the actual brand is a personal preference.
I like a light fruit flavor but on the drier side and not too sweet. However there are options that range from rich, full bodied, and sweet all the way to dry, light and tangy.
How to Make Frose
Some recipes use frozen rose, but this easy instant version skips the waiting time! Here are the simple steps:
- Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until frosty.
You can serve this in wine glasses, jars, or cups garnished with a fresh strawberry. For an extra frosty cocktail, put your glasses in the freezer to get cold before serving!
If you are hosting a Summer get together, serve this frose with these tasty recipes:
- Pineapple Salsa
- Simple Healthy Guacamole
- Healthy Vegan Spinach Artichoke Dip
- Vegan Charcuterie Board
- Easy Vegan Pinwheels
- Watermelon Feta Mint Salad
- Lemon Kale Salad
Once you know how to make a frosé cocktail you can mix it up with different flavors. While I love the simplicity of this recipe, you can adjust the ingredients if you get bored! The easiest way is adding different kinds of fruit. Here are some that would be delicious:
You can also use other types of wine like in this wine slushie recipe. Or another way to change this up is to add liquor to the base recipe. I'd recommend an ounce of vodka per serving. But rum or tequila can work too.
Tips for freezing fruit
If you want to use fresh fruit to make this frozen rosé wine slushie you'll need to freeze it first. Here's how to do it:
- Line a plate or cookie sheet (make sure it fits in your freezer!) with parchment paper.
- Cut the fruit into pieces appropriately 1 inch big.
- Arrange the cut fruit in a single layer on the parchment paper and freeze for 2 hours.
- Once it's frozen you can transfer it to an airtight freezer safe container until you are ready to blend.
This frose recipe makes about 4 servings so you'll want to cut in half if you aren't drinking it all.
- You can also keep the leftovers in the freezer if you'll be drinking a second round within the hour. The alcohol will prevent it from freezing solid that quickly.
- For longer storage pour the frozen rose in ice cube trays and freeze. Once they are solid, transfer to an airtight freezer safe container to prevent freezer burn.
- When you are ready to serve, return the cubes to a blender and blend.
Frosé is basically a frozen rose wine blended into a frosty like drink. They combined the words frozen and rosé.
It has the flavor of strawberries with an underlying rosé wine taste and a touch of tang. It's delicious!
To make a slushy you simply blend ice (or other frozen ingredient) with a liquid until frothy.
Rosé is a wine made from red wine grapes. The difference, and why it has the pink color, is that the skins are left to ferment for a much shorter time which gives it that light pink color.
