Friends, you have to try Frosé! This Frozen Strawberry Rosé Slushie is pretty much the ultimate summer cocktail recipe, and it only takes 4 ingredients to make!

If I have one regret this summer, it may be that I didn’t make this Frozen Strawberry Rosé Slushie—Frosé, if you will—sooner. It tastes absolutely amazing and is pretty much the definition of a summer cocktail. I can’t think of a better way to cool off in this Texas heat!
I’m not sure where I first heard of the Frosé (probably Facebook … I’ve been spending way to much time there with all these crazy election antics), but they had me at rosé. I knew I had to try it ASAP.
After doing a little recipe research, I decided to create my own version.
You only need four ingredients for this tasty drink: rosé, strawberries, raspberries, and a little sugar. To get the most vibrantly colored Frosé, choose the most deeply colored rosé can find. You also want a dry rosé, so avoid blushes and White Zinfandel (yuck).
Keep in mind that you don’t need a super fancy rosé. I mean, this is a wine slushie after all! But you still want to get a bottle you wouldn’t mind drinking on its own. I got mine at Target for around $11 or $12, which is great, because you are going to want to make this drink in bulk!
Besides the wine, the berries are the other thing that gives this Frozen Strawberry Rosé Slushie its pretty color. I used lots of fresh strawberries (choose the juiciest and brightest berries you can find), plus raspberries for extra color.
Do you have a slushie machine? Me, neither. The secret to getting the perfect texture is an ice cream maker! I used my trusty Cuisinart ice cream maker, and it whipped up a batch of these Frozen Strawberry Rosé Slushies in 10 minutes flat.
Don’t worry, you can totally make Frosé in your freezer if you don’t have an ice cream maker, but it will take much longer. The texture won’t be as smooth, but hey, it still tastes darn good!
This Frozen Strawberry Rosé Slushie is so simple to make. Basically, you puree the berries, then mix them with a little sugar. Before popping everything into the ice cream maker, chill the berry puree and the wine for a couple hours. Don’t skip this step!
After everything is chilled, simply mix the berries and wine together, then pour the mixture into your ice cream maker. Process the mixture until it’s the perfect slushie texture; it took about 10 minutes in my ice cream maker.
Tip: my ice cream maker only fit about half the recipe at one time. So blend up one batch, serve it, then pop the liner from the ice cream maker back in your freezer. When it’s time for the next round, pull it out and make a fresh batch.
If you’re anything like me, this Frozen Strawberry Rosé Slushie is destined to become your signature drink. Relax with a batch this weekend!
- 1 lb. strawberries
- 6 oz. raspberries
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 (750 ml) bottle rosé (I used Francis Ford Coppola Sofia Rosé)
- Hull strawberries, than quarter or halve them, depending on size.
- Puree strawberries and raspberries in a blender.
- Strain fruit puree through a fine mesh strainer.
- Stir sugar into puree.
- Chill puree and rosé for at least 2 hours.
- Mix rosé and puree together.
- Transfer mixture to an ice cream maker (mine only fit half of the mixture at one time).
- Process rosé mixture until it turns into slush. Mine took about 10 minutes.
- Serve the Frozen Strawberry Rosé Slushies immediately (store anything that's unused in the freezer). Enjoy!
If you don't have an ice cream maker, skip chilling step. Instead, mix together puree and rosé in a 13 x 9-inch pan, cover, and freeze until mostly solid. Transfer mixture to a blender and blend until smooth.
