Irresistible Frosé Made With Pink Wine
Rosé – a wine almost too pretty to drink, (almost being the keyword here), because who could resist it’s subtly sweet and refreshing flavor? I love any excuse to create a frozen cocktail out of my favorite pink wine or blush wine.
We all know the rosé trend is going crazy right now with almost every brand suddenly coming up with a new drink with the same pink color. Honestly, I can’t say I’m mad about it because all the beautiful displays in every store always catch my attention.
The Easiest Frozen Rosé Recipe
Every time I see rosé in any form it makes me want to grab a bottle and call up some friends for a girls night. With three little girls running around the house those are harder to come by now. Gone are the college days of calling up friends on a whim and having an all-night movie night, spontaneously coming together in a matter of minutes.
Whenever I do get the chance for a kids-free night with some of the girls, the night is never complete without snacks and of course at least one bottle of wine. It’s the perfect excuse to break out my favorite rosé slushy recipe!
Lately, my new favorite drink this amazing Frosé recipe. The recipe is only two ingredients and can be thrown together in just five minutes!
Once I let the Rosé slushies freeze I’m ready for girls night in.
The Best Times For Blush Wine Frosé
My favorite time to host a girls night is always during the Oscars because nothing goes better with wine and candy than gossiping about all your favorite celebrities.
I love adding a game to the night with printable bingo cards. When you win, reward yourself with a rosé slushy.
While I know some of you prefer to save frozen drinks for the summer, for me, a frozen rosé is seasonless. It’s an easy sip and always a crowd pleaser. With just 2 ingredients, it’s just as easy to make as it is to enjoy.
It would be a crime to deprive yourself of something that simple 9 months out of the year. If it really is too cold for a frozen drink try some of these other cocktail recipes that are sure to fit what you’re looking for.
Frosé – A Cocktail for any Occasion
You don’t have to be watching the award shows, or having a party to enjoy this refreshing frozen cocktail. It’s the perfect drink for any night, whether you’re just grilling in the backyard with the family, huddled around the tv with your friends, or hosting Sunday brunch. When it’s poured into glasses like these pretty vintage pieces, who can argue?

How To Choose The Best Rosé
Choosing any wine can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to rosé with all the difference in shades, origins, and prices. Most rosés are made with black grapes (red wine grapes) but can also be made with a combination of red and white wines.
My favorite is a dry rosé, but any type of pink or blush wine will work for this frosé recipe. Here are a few things to keep in mind next time you hit the liquor store.
- French Rosés are almost always dry.
- Other European Rosés are also on the dry side of the spectrum.
- When it comes to options from the US it’s more about determining the base and sweetness. White Zinfandels, Riesling, and Moscato-based are usually sweeter and lower priced.
- Most California Rosés are on the sweeter side.
- Washington and Oregon Rosés are great options for U.S. origins, but they are usually dry and a little pricey since both states do not grow grapes in bulk.
