Have you had a Frosé this summer? Made from combining two of our favourite summer treats into one glorious new mash-up, Frosé mixes rosé wine with ice slush beverages. Delectably suitable for sipping in hot weather and channeling your favourite childhood slushies, there’s no doubt Frosé will be your new favourite beverage this summer.
What's so great about Frosé is that while it effortlessly bridges the gap between alcoholic beverage and summer thirst-quencher, it also looks amazing – so you can be instantly refreshed AND Instagram-worthy at the same time. That sounds like a win/win to us.
It's super easy to whip up in the kitchen and cheap as chips. And as there’s no official recipe, you can try as many different combinations as you like until you find your favourite. All you require to recreate this soon to be iconic beverage is your favourite rosé, berries of your choosing and a blender.
For starters, you could try freezing rosé overnight, before blending it with some strawberries and adding a dash lemon juice. Or, if you're strapped for time, why not go for a scoop of Asda-bought strawberry sorbet coupled with some sparkling rosé and fresh berries for that instant wow effect.
Of course, the real trick to a great Frosé is choosing the right rosé to go in it. As there’s freezing involved, you might want to go for a stronger, fuller bodied and more pungently flavoured rosé than your usual favourite (the freezing process dulls the flavour).
