Frosé — that’s frozen rosé if you haven’t heard — is a fun summer treat that blends rosé wine into a frozen, slushy drink that is perfect for weekend parties or girls’ night in.
Most frosé recipes call for a time intensive process to keep the rosé frozen and the drink at the perfect consistency. When you’re drinking frozen drinks in the summertime, you are likely to experience melting anyway, so we found it easy to justify cutting out the additional freezing time.
If you enjoy wine over cocktails, give frosé a try to test out wine in a cocktail-style and with a colder temperature (plus less sugar and ingredients). It’s easy to make and can be stored in the freezer for up to one week.
Marina and Nicole shortened the process by more than an hour and share their frosé hacks so you can enjoy yours faster. Enjoy!
- 1 bottle of rosé
- 8 oz of strawberries
- 1/2 cup sugar (we recommend using less (1/4 cup) if you don’t want it too sweet)
- 1/2 cup water
- 2.5 oz lemon juice
1. Put a bottle of rosé in the freezer six hours before making the recipe.
2. Make simple syrup by mixing water and sugar in a sauce pan until sugar is dissolved.
3. Chop strawberries into small pieces and mix into the simple syrup.
4. Combine strawberry syrup, frozen rosé, and lemon juice. Blend.
5. Put it back in the freezer for 30 minutes or so.
6. Serve garnished with lemon and mint if you’re feeling fancy.

Frosé is a great addition to summer parties and get togethers. It’s lighter than a cocktail and is a fun take on the usual glass of wine. Don’t be scared to try it because of the prep time! The longest part of the process is keeping the bottle of rosé cold. Solve that by popping a bottle in the freezer right when you get home from the grocery store so you can enjoy your frosé any time!
