INGREDIENTS

Easy Frozen Rosé

  • Frozen Strawberries: It’s important that the fruit is frozen, not fresh/unfrozen. Because of frozen fruit, frosé can be made without ice and boast a delightful slushy texture. For convenience, look for bag of frozen strawberries at the market, or prep and freeze your own.
  • Rosé Wine: Select a delicious rosé you would really enjoy drinking, as this will be the prominent flavor in this fruity cocktail.
  • Honey: This natural ingredient adds a bit of sweetness to this frosé recipe. But if you don’t have honey on hand, you can just leave it out or use agave nectar, or simple syrup instead. See the “Recipe FAQ” section on this page to learn how to make simple syrup at home.

Optional Add-ins / Garnishes

  • Lemon Juice: Citrus is a wonderful way to balance out the flavors of this yummy sweetened drink.
  • Ice: For a thicker, slushier frozen rosé add 1 cup of ice to the blender. It’s also a good idea to have ice on hand in case the drinks melt down. Just add ice and re-blend to make them slushy again.
  • Fresh Strawberries: For garnishing the cocktail glasses. If desired, you can garnish the drinks with fresh mint or edible flowers.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This frozen frosé recipe requires a high-speed blender. For the best texture possible, we want those strawberry seeds all ground up. For quality blenders, I recommend a Vitamix, Wolf, or Ninja.

RECIPE STEPS

RECIPE PREP: If your blender container is freezer safe, chill the pitcher in the freezer for 15 minutes. It’ll help the frozen rosé achieve a frostier texture. While the blender jar is chilling, chill the wine or beverage glasses as well.

  • STEP 1: Add strawberries, rosé, and honey to blender jar.
  • STEP 2: Firmly attach the lid of the blender. (Confession: forgetting to attach the blender lid has happened a few times at my house! Let me tell you, the mess on the ceiling was not pretty.)
  • STEP 3: Blend until smooth – about 45 seconds. Do a taste test. If needed, add some lemon juice to balance out the flavor. If a thicker, slushier texture is desired, add 1 cup of ice and blend until smooth. Want it thicker still? Add more frozen strawberries and blend again.
  • STEP 4: Divide the frosé among chilled wine glasses. There’s enough for 6 drinks. Garnish the rim of each glass with a fresh firm strawberry. If desired, include a fresh sprig of mint or some edible flowers. Enjoy immediately while the glass is still frosty and the drink is slushy.

COCKTAIL TIPS: For extra alcohol and flavor, add 1/2 cup vodka in Step 1 of this recipe. Or substitute peach schnapps or triple sec for the honey. Always drink responsibly and in moderation. Never drink and drive.

RECIPE FAQ

These are the most commonly asked questions when making frozen rosé, and the most helpful answers for recipe success.

WHAT FRUIT TO USE FOR FROZEN ROSÉ?

Strawberries are a traditional favorite because they bring out the sweetness and fruitiness in the rosé wine. But you can also use frozen raspberries, peaches, mangos, pineapples, or a mix of frozen fruit.

WHAT ROSÉ WINE TO USE FOR FROSÉ?

You can use any rosé wine of your choosing, including a sparking rosé or even champagne. Syrah is also a good choice. If you prefer hearty and bold, try Pinot Noir or Merlot Rosé. For this frozen drink, the bottle of wine need not be expensive!

HOW TO FREEZE STRAWBERRIES?

Wash a fresh batch of strawberries, discarding pieces that are squishy or damaged. Let the fruit air dry on paper towels. Hull the strawberries to remove the stems along with the white-colored area beneath the stems. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Arrange the berries on the tray making sure none of them are touching. Freeze until firm, about 3 hours or overnight. Transfer fruit to a freezer bag. Freeze up to 6 months.

HOW TO MAKE SIMPLE SYRUP?

If you don’t have honey or agave on hand, it’s quick and easy to make simple syrup. Add 1 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 cup water to a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove pan from heat. Let the syrup cool. Pour it into a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. Refrigerate up to 1 month. NOTE: Depending on the number of cocktails you’ll be making, it’s easy to upscale or downscale this basic recipe: 2 parts sugar to 1 part water.

HOW TO MAKE FROSÉ THICKER?

Add more frozen strawberries to the blender and blend briefly.

HOW TO MAKE SMOOTH FROSÉ WITHOUT STRAWBERRY SEEDS?

Pour the blended mixture through a fine-mesh strainer to remove the strawberry seeds. Then return the frosé to the blender and add some ice. Reblend briefly until the texture is slushy.

HOW TO MAKE MELTED FROSÉ SLUSHY AGAIN?

If the frosé has started to melt, add 1 cup ice and blend until smooth. If the mixture is thin or liquidy, thicken it up by adding in a few more frozen strawberries. Blend until smooth.

CAN FROSÉ BE MADE IN ADVANCE?

Yes it can! Just pour the blended mixture into ice cube trays and freeze for later. When ready to enjoy, add to a blender and process briefly.
