The perfect drink for warmer weather is none other than my strawberry frosé!
What the heck is frosé? A few years ago, rosé took off as the summer drink of choice. Since then, the trend has just continued to spread. The ‘f’ in frosé stands for ‘frozen’ and a glass of frosé is quite literally ‘frozen rosé’! Now you know.
Since Michigan is so cold during the majority of the year, as soon as summer arrives I waste no time pulling out all of my sandals from storage and stocking up all of the rosé. Seriously, all of the rosé.
This slushy drink is my version of the perfect frosé. I love fresh strawberries so I’m never without them in my fridge during the summer. That’s probably why they are the first thing I reach for whether I’m making a smoothie, topping pancakes or building a cheese board.
I’ve brought this slushy from everything to potlucks, picnics and wine nights and it has been really well received at all of them! It gets a little melted if you have it outside in the heat for too long so make sure to serve it as soon as you remove it from the oven.
How to Pick a Rosé
Rosé can be either sweet or dry. This is largely based on what grape it comes from. When picking a rosé to make strawberry frosé, you’ll want to go with something just a little sweet but mostly dry. Too dry and the sweet strawberries will class with it. Too sweet and you’ll be drinking juice. That being said, if you are deciding between too dry or too sweet, go with the sweet!
If these four servings of frosé are too much for you and you want to save some for later (strange choice but it is yours to make), place the leftovers in an airtight container and put it back in the fridge. When it comes time to drink it again, put it back in a blender with a little more of the rosé to give it that slushy texture.
- 3 cups of rosé, divided
- 1 cup fresh strawberries, stems and leaves removed
- Pour 2 cups of rosé into a Tupperware and freeze for 6 hours (or overnight). When ready to serve, combine the frozen rosé, the strawberries and the remaining cup of rose in a blender. Blend until combined.
