If I have one regret this summer, it may be that I didn’t make this Frozen Strawberry Rosé Slushie—a Frosé, if you will—sooner!
Okay, let’s backup, because you may be wondering what is Frosé? Basically, Frosé is frozen rosé wine (a rosé slushie) with a few some delicious seasonal fruit mixed in. It’s a wine slushie!
I’m not sure where I first heard of the Frosé (probably Facebook … I’ve been spending way to much time there with these crazy election antics), but they had me at rosé, definitely my fave summer wine. I knew I had to create my own wine slushie recipe ASAP … before summer was over.
This Frozen Strawberry Rosé Slushie 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!
How to Make a Wine Slushie
Here’s the thing: not only is this Frozen Strawberry Rosé Slushie super refreshing and delicious, it’s also so easy to make!
You only need four ingredients for this frozen rosé recipe: a bottle of rosé wine, strawberries, raspberries, and a little sugar. To get the most vibrantly colored Frosé, choose the most deeply colored, darkest pink rosé can find. You also want a dry rosé, so avoid sweet wines, like blushes and White Zinfandel (yuck).
And keep in mind that you don’t need a super fancy rosé for this Frosé recipe. I mean, this is a wine slushie after all!
That doesn’t mean you should get total plonk, of course, 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 perfect, because you are going to want to make this frozen rosé wine recipe 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, plus raspberries for extra color for this frozen rosé wine recipe. The berries also add a touch of sweetness.
It should go without saying … make sure to choose the freshest, juiciest, sweetest berries you can find!
So how do you get that wonderful slushie texture? It’s pretty easy.
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. Which means you can make these wine slushies pretty much on demand.
Don’t have an ice cream maker? No worries … make this Frosé recipe in your freezer instead. Your frozen wine slush will take longer, and the texture won’t be as smooth, but hey, it still tastes darn good!
Frosé: Frozen Strawberry Rosé Slushie Recipe
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!
This Frosé, a Frozen Strawberry Rosé Slushie, is the ultimate summer cocktail with only four ingredients!
- 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.
