Whirl up some frosé, the ultimate summer sip that transforms classic rosé into a frosty, grown-up slushie!

Okay, summer cocktail lovers, let’s talk frozen rosé, aka frosé! I’ve sipped on this refreshing pink drink in all sorts of places: a trendy rooftop pool bar in Austin where my son attends college, a quaint wine bar in Key West during an unforgettable girls’ trip, and in the comfort of my own backyard, to name just a few. Each iteration varies slightly, but the core ingredients are pretty straightforward: rosé wine, vodka, a splash of flavored liqueur like peach schnapps or Grand Marnier, and frozen fruit. Add to that a bit of sugar, a squeeze of lemon juice, and ice, and you have yourself what can best be described as a grown-up slushie.

Girls trip to Key West! From grade school adventures to celebrating the big 5-0: my childhood friends Katie and Sasha sipping frosé at Grand Vin Wine Bar.

What You’ll Need To Make Frosé

frosé ingredients

While most frosé recipes call for frozen strawberries, I prefer to use frozen peaches and cherries. Apart from their distinct textures and flavors — with peaches adding velvety sweetness and cherries lending tartness and a beautiful pink shade — using seedless fruits eliminates the need for straining. Plus, you can easily find both fruits pre-frozen at the supermarket, making your prep work a breeze.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Add the vodka, orange liqueur, lemon juice, and sugar to a high-powered blender.

Cover and puree until smooth. Taste and add more sugar or alcohol if desired and test the consistency. If you would like it slushier, add the remaining ice and blend again. If you would like it thinner, add a bit more rosé.

Note: Frosé is best made right before serving but, due to the alcohol content, it won’t completely solidify in the freezer. If you have any left over, feel free to pop it in the freezer. Before serving, let it thaw briefly, give it another whirl in the blender, and you’re all set to enjoy.

Comments

  • Couldn’t find frozen peaches so used mangoes and cherries… Their comments ? “This beat expectations and was better than a pina colada for a 95 degree day”! That’s quite the commendation since pina coladas are their favorite hot weather drinks. Thanks! Simple and quite delightful.

  • These sound delish and while I’m a big fan of peaches my fiancé is not… and he’s even from the south…!

    Any thoughts on what I could use instead of peaches? I think I can get away with the schnapps but not the fruit. Thanks! Always love your recipes.

    • Hi Ashlee, you really can’t taste the peaches much in this. The peach schnapps has a stronger flavor so I’d use the orange liqueur instead of the schnapps. If you really want to avoid using peaches, you can replace them with strawberries, (but you’ll need to contend with the seeds unless you have a very high powered blender). I’d love to hear how they turn out!

      • Great to know and thanks for the reply. I may try your suggestion and switch the liquor to orange as I am allergic to strawberries and we will test if he can taste the peaches. If he can, I guess there will be more for me 😉 haha! Will let you know. Thanks!

  • Yum! After a very hot Dallas day and a flat tire, this was perfect. Thank you for a fun recipe that restored our sense of humor. I didn’t have vodka, and we enjoyed this without.

    • Hi Sue, It’s fine to leave out the vodka – just replace it with more wine.

    • Hi Jenn,
      Would tequila or Bacardi with here? I don’t like vodka.

      BTW- I made your pina colada last week and it was a big hit. Love it. I just came back from Peurto Rico and their pina colada is nothing like yours-they use whole milk, Don Q rum and coconut liqueur. Didn’t like it at all. Yours Rock!!! Thanks Jenn

      • Hi Janelle, Yes you could use either of those here. So glad you enjoyed the piña coladas!
