I don’t know about you guys but I pretty much crave cold drinks all the time when it’s warm out. And with the muggy weather we’ve been having lately I’m switching the word cold for frozen. Gimme something really icy that’s going to cool me down asap! Today on the blog I’m sharing another super easy frozen summer cocktail- a frosé inspired drink that’s just about the prettiest thing, and it’s tasty! It does require a little bit of planning ahead of time, but the actual execution takes mere minutes! Read on for the recipe!
Strawberry Frosé Cocktail
yields 6-8 glasses
- Bottle of dry rosé wine
- 1 cup strawberries, hulled
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- Juice of 1 lemon
The night before you want to make the frosé, pour one bottle of rosé wine into a freezer safe dish. I used a pie dish! The key here is to just make sure that the liquid does not spill. Let freeze over night.
Boil 1 cup water and sugar in a small saucepan. Gently add in strawberries and let simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Strain liquid and set aside. You can use the leftover strawberries for a yummy pancake or waffle topping!
When ready to serve, scrape frozen rosé mixture into a blender. Add in 3 tablespoons of strawberry simple syrup and lemon juice. Blend on medium speed until well mixed.
If you find the mixture is not blending well, add in a little more syrup or even a tablespoon or two of wine. Give it a quick stir and try again!
Want the mixture to be sweeter? Add in more syrup! Need it to be a little frothier? Add half a cup of ice! I found it perfect if served right away, but it does melt fairly quickly so ice is a great addition if you need the drinks to last a little longer.
Pour evenly in goblets of choice and serve.
I love decorating the glasses with strawberries but I adore fresh flowers as well! Just make sure that the flowers are organic and not sprayed with any pesticides before use.
