Frosè- also known as a frozen rosé cocktail, has gained popularity in recent years, especially during the summer season. Its refreshing and fruity nature makes it the perfect cocktail for summer.

Frosè is typically made by blending rosé wine with frozen fruit, such as strawberries, watermelon or peaches, and adding a touch of sweetness with simple syrup or sugar. The mixture is blended until it reaches a slushy consistency. The result is a fruity icy concoction with a delightful wine flavor.

Tips to make the BEST Frose-

  • Use simple syrup or agave instead of granulated sugar to sweeten up the cocktail.
  • If you have some extra time, freeze part of the rosè into ice cubes. The wine doesn’t fully freeze, but it gives a great slushy texture. Add frozen or fresh strawberries, sugar, and the remaining rosè to help blend the cocktail.
