Then I called my friend Christina over because it’s always more acceptable to drink in good company, right? Well, we spent the day making drunken strawberries and photographing them for you. Okay, it really only took 5 minutes to make them, but we were chasing toddlers, comparing notes, and having fun. Anyways, I know you’ll love these rosé strawberries too.
A couple years ago we did a rosé tasting in Sonoma with friends. I had occasionally had a glass of rosé that I enjoyed, but more that I didn’t. It was fun to do a side by side comparison of rosés to see what it was I did and did not like. Of course the views and great company didn’t hurt either.
Ever since I’ve enjoyed the occasional glass and have begun experimenting with it making these pretty sugared rosé strawberries, rosé slushies and even using it in lieu of pinot for my reduction to top desserts.
These marinated Rosé Strawberries, or Drunken Strawberries as I like to call them, are easy to eat. They’re the perfect summer poolside treat or addition to an Oscar watch party and Valentine’s Day, of course!
Whatever the occasion, I hope you enjoy them, too!
- 1 pound strawberries washed and hulled
- 2 cups rosé
- 1/4 cup sugar
- Place strawberries in a bowl, cover with rose and refrigerate up to 1 hour.
- Drain strawberries and lightly dry them.
- Roll in sugar and freeze until you're ready to enjoy.
- Use fresh strawberries, and organic if possible, they should be ripe but firm, and use your favorite rose wine.
- Allow the strawberries to sit in the wine for up to 1 hour in the fridge before rolling them in sugar.
- I prefer to freeze the strawberries before eating them, but you don't have to if you are in a hurry to serve them!
