I’m a rosé girl, all year round (gasp).
After water, wine might be my beverage of choice. I love to frosé all day with a fun cocktail, but appreciate a good wine with a meal, with a good book or movie, on vacation, at home, with friends…you get the picture. I'm also a sucker for beautiful packaging and a complete Italophile (is that even a thing?)
When I saw the new Festa D’Estate collection of Italian wines from Kosherwine.com I had to try it to make frosé with their new rosé. Festa D’Estate means summer party in Italian. Frosé is the perfect wine cocktail, and my go-to summer drink. If you haven’t yet tasted frosé, it's a partially frozen drink made from rosé wine and fruit combined with ice and pureed into a smooth consistency.
I like to keep it light, and summer entertaining needs to be easy so this frosé recipe has 3 ingredients.
Rosé, frozen strawberries, and ice! No added sugars or syrups, because summer has enough sweets and frozen berries are even sweeter than fresh!
Frosé all day with frosé recipe for two, because it's no fun to drink frosé alone.
- 2 Cups Rosé
- 2 Cups Frozen* Strawberries
- 1 Cup Ice
- A few fresh strawberries for garnish
Place all ingredients into your blender and mix on high till thoroughly blended and pour into wine glasses.
Slice a few strawberries into fans and place on the rim.
*Frozen strawberries are key to the perfect slushy consistency. You can freeze fresh berries or use a bag of already frozen.
*If you like it sweeter, you can add a few drops of liquid stevia (or sweetener of your choice; a squirt of honey or agave nectar work well too) and feel free to adjust the consistency - if you want it thicker, add more ice, thinner, more rosé.
*If you’re not a strawberry lover, feel free to use what you have - blueberries, raspberries or a mix works great too and yields a deeper, darker color. If you’re not a berry lover, peach frosé recipe is fantastic too. Use what you’ve got and Frosé all day.
A few tips
Drinking frosé might be a tiny bit cliché, but that’s ok with me! It brings a fun vibe to however you drink it. Drink it on its own, or to accompany your next summer bbq.
Sip, sip frosé all day!
