Frosé. All Day.
One of the downsides about quarantine is that you can’t go out and be served a nice drink. Sure, lots of places are doing cocktail kits for you to make at home. Or some places (if you are lucky to live in a state that allows this) are doing to-go alcoholic drinks, but nothing beats having a nice, frozen, boozy beverage brought to your table after just merely speaking the name of the drink to the server.
One of those favorite, frozen, boozy beverages that I love is frosé, and it became one of my quarantine missions to recreate it. I have seen lots of recipes for it, but they all seemed to require hours of prep work to “freeze, fluff, repeat” the frozen mixture before you could enjoy it. And, let’s face it, I am not about that life. So I set out to create a simple frosé recipe that lets you enjoy it right after you make it, or a few hours later.
- One bottle of rosé
- One bag (16 oz) frozen strawberries
- Optional: Juice of two lemons
- Optional: ¼ cup of simple syrup (equal parts water and sugar, heated until sugar is dissolved)
- Put all ingredients in blender
- Blend until smooth
- Serve and Enjoy
- Store the rest in a pitcher or mason jar in the freezer. Use this to refill glasses as needed. As it sits in the freezer, the more slushie it will get. Use a fork to fluff before refilling glasses as needed
- Make a few hours ahead and store in the freezer for more slushie/frozen consistency.
- Add any frozen fruits you have instead (or in addition to). Frozen peaches and raspberries are also great to add in.
- I do not recommend using sparkling rosé, as the carbonation in the blender does not typically go well.
- I always have simple syrup in my fridge. I used an old glass bottle from a salad dressing and washed it out, removing the label. Then I add equal parts sugar and water and stick it in the microwave for a few minutes. Be careful if you are using a glass bottle, as they get super hot in the microwave. After pulling (carefully) out of the microwave, carefully add the lid and shake until the sugar is dissolved. Let cool to room temperature and then store in your fridge for easy simple syrup on hand.
