Enjoy your favorite blush wine turned into a refreshingly easy to sip two ingredient frosé recipe. It’s a pink wine frozen rosé slushy, perfect for any brunches, showers or parties.
These grown up wine slushies take just minutes to make and they are the perfect cooling summer drink.
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 girl’s night in.
However, you don’t need to host 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.
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.
When it’s poured into glasses like these pretty vintage pieces, who can argue?
I know some of you prefer to save frozen drinks for the summer, but to me, a frozen rosé is season-less. It’s an easy sip and always a crowd pleaser. It’s just as easy to make as it is to enjoy.
You’ll just need two ingredients for this delicious summer cocktail!
Ingredients and Substitutions
- Rosé Wine – Any type of pink or blush wine will work with this recipe. I prefer a dry rosé, but you can choose your favorite.
- Lemonade – Again, use your favorite lemonade for this recipe. I prefer to use a cloudy lemonade but you can also use a clear one, and of course, you can make your own too.
How To Make Frozen Rosé
- Combine rosé and lemonade into a freezer safe container.
- Freeze for 6+ hours, stir and serve.
- *If it over solidifies, remove from freezer for 15 minutes, stir and serve.
- Garnish – These drinks are perfect to serve in pretty glasses by themselves, but if you want to add some garnish, some curled lemon peel and a strawberry would be a great addition.
- Scale – This recipe makes enough for about six drinks, but it is easily doubled or tripled using the sliding + or – feature in the recipe if you are hosting more people.
- Freeze Time – Allow at least 6 hours for the wine mixture to freeze before serving.
Frequently Asked Questions
The short answer? It depends. Most wine experts will agree that a bottle is best used within 48 hours or corking. However, for a cocktail like this (where some of the nuance of the wine is lost because of the components of the drink) you should be fine to store your frosé mix in the fridge for up to 4-5 days.
Yes, wine freezes! If it’s kept below a certain temperature for long enough, it will freeze. Depending on the the bottle you’re freezing (and the amounts of water vs alcohol) some will freeze faster than others!
Best Rosé for these Cocktails
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.
How to Store
- Refrigerator – You can store this cocktail mixture for up to 4-5 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
- Freezer – The frosé will keep in the freezer for up to 3 months.
