Sorbet rosé cocktail is a refreshing summer cocktail made with your choice of flavored sorbet, elderflower liquor and, of course, rosé.
Summer’s not over yet! I’m actually heading to the beach later today and I wish I could make a sorbet rosé cocktail with my toes in the sand. Are portable beach freezers a thing? Please drop me a message if they are. Happy hour depends on it.
As many of you know, I’m a huge fan of alcoholic desserts so when frosé (aka frozen rosé) became a thing this summer, I jumped on board.
Instead of waiting for rosé to freeze and delaying my happy hour, I decided to make a dessert cocktail by adding a scoop of sorbet to my rosé. Nothing better than a drink ready in under five minutes!
My sorbet of choice was grapefruit-flavored for the slight tangy flavor it lends to the cocktail. It’s a refreshing compliment to the dry rosé and the color matches perfectly. If you prefer a sweeter cocktail, flavors such as strawberry or peach would also do well in this rosé cocktail.
When making and drinking my sorbet rosé, I learned two things. One, you can enjoy the cocktail with a spoon and savor alcoholic-infused sorbet. Or two, you sip on the rosé and allow the sorbet to melt into the cocktail.
I prefer the latter. It’s like a rosé slushy!
Look at that beautiful pink glass of joy. I believe that is what every summer evening calls for… a sorbet rosé cocktail. Cheers!
