Slushy and fruity, Frosé is THE summer drink. Discover this new cocktail which will be a hit at your next party.
Spritz may have been your favorite last summer, but this year it's been eclipsed by the new Frosé (Frozen Rosé). As its name indicates, it's a frozen drink, like a granita, made from rosé wine. Created in New York at the Bar Primi Italian restaurant, the cocktail quickly took social media by storm on both sides of the Atlantic. This refreshing cocktail is a mixture of rosé, strawberries and ice cubes - then all you need to do is enjoy it in the shade on your patio or at an outdoor barbecue.
- Pour the bottle of rosé wine into a 13" by 9" pan and freeze for about six hours, until almost solid.
- Make the syrup: boil the water and sugar until the sugar dissolves and then mix in the hulled, quartered strawberries.
- Let the mixture rest for a half hour before straining the berries out of the infused syrup.
- Scrape the granité into a blender and mix with the lemon juice, one cup of crushed ice, and the strawberry syrup.
- Freeze for a half hour and blend again.
(1) We made this recipe with Cantini rosé, an Italian wine from Triani, made in Abruzzo from Montepulciano grapes. It's a rosé with freshness and notes of berries and roses. The bonus - it's a reasonable price in major grocery stores.
