Okay, summer cocktail lovers, let’s talk frozen rosé, aka frosé! I’ve sipped on this refreshing pink drink in all sorts of places: a trendy rooftop pool bar in Austin where my son attends college, a quaint wine bar in Key West during an unforgettable girls’ trip, and in the comfort of my own backyard, to name just a few. Each iteration varies slightly, but the core ingredients are pretty straightforward: rosé wine, vodka, a splash of flavored liqueur like peach schnapps or Grand Marnier, and frozen fruit. You can also add a little sugar, lemon juice and ice to make a grown-up version of a slushie.
What You’ll Need To Make Frosé
While most frosé recipes call for frozen strawberries, I prefer to use frozen peaches and cherries. Apart from their distinct textures and flavors — with peaches adding velvety sweetness and cherries lending tartness and a beautiful pink shade — using seedless fruits eliminates the need for straining. Both fruits are available pre-frozen in the supermarket. This makes your preparation work easier.
