Happy Monday, babes! We hope you are all having a great 4th of July weekend/week. This whole holiday on a Tuesday has been really throwing us off! But hey, we’re not in the office, so we can’t complain ;)!
Much like the rest of you, we’ve been obsessing over rosé this summer. So when I stumbled upon frosé, I knew I had to share it with you ladies. This frosé recipe is incredibly easy, and it’s just as delicious as it looks. The worst part about making this frozen beverage is waiting for the rosé to freeze. I recommend throwing it in the freezer first thing in the morning, so it’s ready by the time you’re ready for a cocktail.
My only complaint about this drink is the serious brain freeze, but it’s honestly so worth it. I’ve been enjoying this tasty treat poolside all weekend, and I’m pretty sure I’ll continue that trend throughout the rest of my 4th of July festivities. I serve the drinks in my favorite Crate & Barrel coupes, (available here!) Okay enough of my babbling, let’s get to what’s important…
1 bottle of rosé (750 ml)
3 oz lemon juice
1 cup chopped strawberries
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 cup ice
Pour rosé into a 9×13 glass container and place in the freezer for at least 6 hours. (I put mine in first thing in the morning at 6:00, and by 1:00 in the afternoon, it was perfect.) Keep in mind, it won’t freeze completely due to the alcohol content.
When the mixture is just about frozen, begin making the strawberry syrup. Pour the 1/2 cup of water, and 1/2 cup of sugar into a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil and whisk frequently until the sugar dissolves. Once the syrup is boiling, add the strawberries and remove from heat. Allow the syrup and strawberries to cool for about 20 minutes, (this will infuse the syrup with the strawberry flavor). Once cooled, use a mesh sieve or strainer to drain the syrup into a small bowl, removing the strawberries.
Scoop the frozen rosé into a blender. Add syrup, lemon juice, and 1 cup of ice. Blend the mixture until ice is completely blended and smooth. Serve immediately, or place in a separate container and freeze until ready to enjoy. If you freeze the mixure for longer than an hour, you will want to run it through the blender again until slushy.
Let us know what you think of this recipe! Give it a try for your 4th of July celebrations. Enjoy!
