Happy Sunday! What better way to finish the weekend than with only the trendiest cocktail of summer 2016: frosé.
Frozen rose, also known as frosé, has to be the hottest frozen cocktail out there right now. The frosé sensation hit when the NYC restaurant Bar Primi started serving the frozen rose concoction and it has caught on like wild fire ever since. I can’t say I’m surprised this frozen phenomenon has not only taken over our social media feeds, but sent girls into a frenzy looking for a local bar or restaurant that serves the sweet slushy for them to sip on at their next happy hour. Lucky for you I decided to take frosé into my own hands and whip up a batch of my own at home (you already know I love rosé)! While I am sure there are several different ways to make this sweet slushy, I was very happy with how my recipe turned out. It only takes a few ingredients, a little patience, and before you know it you’ll be sipping your new favorite frozen cocktail! Now let’s make some frosé…
What You’ll Need:
Tupperware or some sort of shallow container to pour the rose into
1 Bottle of Rose (the darker and bolder the better)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
Pour your bottle of rose into container, secure with lid, then carefully place in the freezer.
While the rose is in the freezer, prepare the strawberry simple syrup.
Add water and sugar to a medium saucepan and heat to almost boiling where the sugar dissolves (2-3 minutes). Wash your strawberries and cut the stems off then place them in the simple syrup. Let them sit for 30 minutes or so then use a sieve to pour the syrup into a small bowl. Cover the bowl and place in the refrigerator. Discard the strawberries.
At this point you should probably go do something. The rose takes a few hours to freeze so you’ll want to make sure you give yourself at least 5 hours or so before you actually put together the frosé.
Once the rose is frozen (or close to being frozen – it probably won’t freeze all the way since it’s alcohol), carefully scrape the icy rose into the blender. Add the strawberry infused simple syrup. You can add as much or as little as you like depending on how sweet you want it to be (I added the entire bowl).
Squeeze the juice of one lemon and add it to the blender. Turn your blender on and blend away until the mixture is smooth.
That’s it! Now grab a few glasses and go share your delicious creation with some friends!
