Could I really call it summer if I didn’t give this whole frozen rosé thing a try? Let’s be honest, I mainly tried it so that I could write this blog post and title it frosé because who doesn’t enjoy saying that word? Frosé, frosé, frosé.
This Saturday we opened all the windows in the house and let the summer sun pour in on. It was the perfect setting for a little rosé, also known as “summer water”. That’s quite an appropriate nickname if you ask me, but sometimes thinks are just better frozen. Start with a bottle of your favorite rosé and fill up a couple ice trays. It took longer than anticipated for the rosé to freeze, so I’d recommend freezing it overnight. The rest is honestly kind of up to you. I added a little simple syrup and fresh squeezed lemon juice, tossed it all in the blender with a handful or two of ice. Blend until smooth, and voilà. It was delicious and so refreshing!
If you really want to impress, you can garnish with a lemon twist – or you may be too excited to try it and forget about the garnish altogether like I did. I came across numerous variations of the recipe on Pinterest, so other adds include a little sugar, strawberries, St. Germaine or Fentiman’s Rose Lemonade. It definitely won’t be my last frosé of the summer, so I’ll take one for the team and try all the variations so I can report back which one was my favorite.
We are so close to a long weekend! Do you have any special plans for the 4th of July? A glass of frosé would be ideal as you’re sitting poolside.
