I discovered frozen rosé several years ago during a summer trip to New York City. Frozen rosé (frosé) is such a fun adult drink to order when you’re out with girl friends on a hot day. Frosé is a frozen cocktail that’s basically a rosé wine slushie, and it has quickly become one of my favorite summer cocktails.
Surprisingly, although a little time consuming, frozen rosé is actually pretty easy to make. The hardest part about making this frosé recipe is just waiting overnight for your rosé wine to freeze! Here’s an easy frosé recipe for you to make at home this summer.
How To Make Frozen Rosé (Frosé)
What You Need for Frozen Rosé
The best part about this frozen rosé recipe is that fit contains three ingredients:
- Your favorite rosé wine
- Fresh strawberries
- Simple syrup (recipe below)
For this recipe, I recommend fresh strawberries over frozen strawberries. Strawberries are at peak season in the summer, so they’re extra flavorful this time of year!
You can buy simple syrup in stores, but honestly it’s really, really easy to make. My advice is to save yourself $5 at the store and use it to buy a coffee instead.
HOW TO MAKE THE SIMPLE SYRUP
To make simple syrup, you just need equal parts granulated sugar and water. For example, if you’re using 1 cup or water, you’d add 1 cup of sugar. (2 total cups will render to 1 cup, 1 total cup will render to a half cup, and so on.)
In a small pot, mix both together, then bring to a boil until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and let it cool before adding to your frozen rose.
How to Make Frozen Rosé
The hardest part of this recipe is waiting for your rosé to freeze overnight! From there, it’s just a round of blending and freezing. Although making frozen rosé requires some patience, it’s definitely not a difficult recipe to execute.
First, pour your rosé into a blender. You’re going to use the full bottle here so jump dump that baby right in there! Then added the strawberries. Make sure you cut the greens off. I like to cut my strawberries tin half out of habit, but since they’re going into a blender it’s not a total must. Add the simple syrup, then give the ingredients a good blend.
Once everything is blended, grab your freezer-friendly dish and colander. Pour the mixture through the colander to strain it directly into the dish. Cover the dish and put it in the freezer for at least 6 hours.
I find that it’s easiest to do this step before bed to I can let everything freeze overnight. The alcohol will prevent it from freezing completely, so you don’t have to worry about over-freezing anything.
After the rosé wine mixture has frozen, scrape it into your blender once more. You can use a spoon here, and it should scrape away relatively easy.
Blend until the texture becomes nice and fluffy, then serve into cocktail glasses and enjoy immediately.
