This not-too-sweet frosé is the perfect warm weather cocktail. With only three ingredients, it’s refreshing, delicious and very easy to make.
At the risk of being labeled a walking cliché, I’m a “rosé all day” girl. In fact, I’ve been known to drink rosé year round (even in the dead of winter.) But when the weather heats up, I love a frozen cocktail. But I don’t love a sugar bomb. That’s why I played around with this frosé recipe until I refined it down to a few simple ingredients:
- Rosé wine – Choose a rosé that is full-bodied as the flavor gets somewhat diluted once it is blended. If you start with a rosé that you’d want to drink on it’s own, you’ll love it blended in this frozen rosé cocktail.
- Frozen fruit – I used strawberries but you could use a combination of strawberries, blueberries and even peaches.
- Honey – When developing this recipe, I wanted to omit sweeteners entirely, but it just didn’t taste good. I’d suggest adding a tablespoon of honey, tasting and then adding more if desired. You could also use monkfruit sweetener.
- (Optional) A squirt of lemon or lime
I’ve used half of a bottle of rosé in this recipe, which makes about 4 glasses. You can easily scale the recipe up or down depending on how many people you are serving.
