Frosé, or frozen rosé, is a refreshing blended drink that is perfect for summer! Our frosé recipe brings together frozen strawberries, agave, lemon, and of course, rosé all blended together to create this slushy masterpiece.
If you're ever uncertain what to serve for a warm-weather gathering, look no further than the strawberry frosé.
Its slushy texture makes it fun to drink, the combination of strawberries and rose is delightful, and it's incredibly easy!
How to make strawberry frosé
- Empty a 750ml bottle of rosé into a container and freeze for approximately 3 hours. The rose won't freeze entirely due to the alcohol. Note: if you are pressed for time, you can skip this step and still achieve great results. Our pictures are from frose made with frozen rose and they were quite thick. If you use rose that's not frozen and you want a thicker consistency, use more frozen strawberries or even a handful of ice.
- Once the rose is frozen, use a spoon or ice cream scooper to scrape it into a blender.
- Add 3 cups of frozen strawberries to the blender. Note: we used a bag of frozen strawberries from the grocery store to make this even easier.
- Add 3 tablespoons of agave nectar. Note: You can use simple syrup in place of the agave. Simple syrup can be made by combining equal parts sugar and water and simmering until the sugar dissolves.
- Add 2 tablespoons of fresh-squeezed lemon juice.
- Blend the ingredients together on a high or puree setting until combined and slushy. You may need to use a spoon to ensure the contents at the top are fully incorporated. If the consistency is too thick, you can add a touch of water (or rose). Give the frosé a taste test and if you think it needs more sweetener, add a little agave at a time until you achieve the desired sweetness. The sweetness will depend on the type of rose you chose as well as the strawberries.
- Once fully blended, scoop the frose into the glasses of your choosing. We used stemless wine glasses, but use whichever glasses you'd like. Garnish with a fresh strawberry and serve immediately. Note: frosé is great and a bit easier to drink when served with a straw. We recommend using straws when serving.
Frosé add-ins and substitutions
- The alcohol. If you'd like to increase the alcohol in this drink, you can add 4 ounces of vodka to the mixture prior to blending. To make this non-alcoholic, you can use a bottle of non-alcoholic white wine or non-alcoholic rosé. There are several companies that now make non-alcoholic wine which is a great option for those who do not drink alcohol.
- The fruit. We think strawberries are great with frosé but you can feel free to experiment with other frozen fruit. Raspberries, watermelon, dragonfruit, and peach would all be great combined with the strawberries.
- The sweetener. We chose to use agave for this recipe but you can certainly use homemade simple syrup or storebought simple syrup in place of the agave. To make your own simple syrup, combine equal parts water and sugar and simmer until the sugar dissolves. We've used flavored simple syrups in the past for other recipes, like our Lavender French 75 and I bet that would add a really nice touch to frose!
- The garnish. We chose fresh strawberries for our garnish but use what is available to you. Lime slices, fresh mint, or lemon slices would all look great.
