Confession: I’ve already started thinking about/making recipes for autumn 😬😬. This happens pretty much every August when I’m even more done with the summer than usual. Dreaming of fall leaves, crisp breezes, and all the delicious food. However! Even though, I might be making those recipes behind the scenes, I still have a few summer recipes left for you to enjoy. And nothing says summer like Strawberry Frosé!
A friend of mine texted me a picture of a refreshing looking glass of what she called “Frosé” and I knew immediately that I needed that in my life. Until recently, I had never heard of this delicious summer beverage but after a little pinteresting I found out that apparently, Frosé is the “It drink” of the summer. One sip of this and you’ll see why!
In the spirit of summer, I decided to add strawberries 🍓 to my recipe thus the Strawberry Frosé. Basically this drink is the adult version of an icee.
I noticed a lot of Frosé recipes say things like “have to think ahead!” or “make sure to freeze that rosé the night before!”…if I want a cold beverage, I’m gunna want it that day, if not in 5 minutes…So I made sure this recipe takes literally 5 minutes. I did use frozen strawberries but I find those are much more likely to be hanging around in your freezer (also ready to go in the freezer aisle at the store) than frozen rosé cubes.
Oh and guess what?? Frosé is not sweet!!! So many blended, icy beverages are ruined by way too much sugar, making it too sweet to finish and resulting in a serious headache. Frosé tastes just like a glass of rosé but slushie style, perfect for a hot summer day!
Summer (at least for me) seems to be winding down, but I might just be drinking this refreshing strawberry frosé all year long!Print
- 1/2 bottle Rosé, dry and more red in color
- 2 cups frozen strawberries
- 1/2 to 2 cups ice
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons simple syrup for sweetener, more or less as desired
- Blend all ingredients in a blender. Pour into your favorite glass, garnish with a fresh strawberry, and enjoy!
To make simple syrup, bring ½ cup white sugar and ½ cup water to boil in a small sauce pan. Once sugar has dissolved, reduce heat to medium and cook about 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture is slightly thickened. Remove from heat and chill until completely cooled.
