Frosé aka Frozen Rosé

Frosé is no doubt the cocktail of summer and it is SO easy to make at home. Blend together rosé with these ingredients for the ultimate cool-down cocktail.

Prep Time 7 hours
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 7 hours 5 minutes
Servings 4 - 6 servings


  • 1 bottle (750 ml) bold rosé such as a Pinot Noir rosé
  • 1/2 cup (112 g) sugar
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon (2 ½ ounces) fresh lemon juice


  1. Pour rosé into a 9x13 pan and freeze for 6 hours. It won't solidify completely due to the alcohol, but it will get firm.

Strawberry Simple Syrup

  1. Stir together 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and continually stir until sugar completely dissolves—about 3 minutes. Remove saucepan from the heat and immediately add the strawberries. Let the mixture sit at room temp for 30 minutes to infuse flavor.
  2. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a small bowl. Discard strawberries. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.


  1. Scrape frozen rosé into a large blender. Add lemon juice, 3 1/2 ounces (slightly less than 1/2 cup) strawberry syrup and 1 cup crushed ice. Pureé until smooth.
  2. You have the option to serve the frosé now OR transfer the blender jar to the freezer for about 25 more minutes for a thicker consistency. If you freeze a second time, blend the mixture once more before serving.
