This rosé slushie recipe is an easy way to make INSTANT frosé (you know, frozen rosé)! You just need a bottle of rosé, frozen strawberries, and sugar.
Ever sat at your favorite restaurant sipping your favorite frosé, wishing you could make it at home? We all know what frosé is, right? Freeze rosé and you get frosé. It’s like a grown up slushy. A wine slushie. It’s magical. And if you’re one of those who (like me) always wanted to make your own, you’re in luck. Now you can!
Not only can you make it at home, you don’t even need to wait for it to freeze. I tend to be impatient when it comes to that, so I whipped up this no-freezing-needed version that can be enjoyed by all walks of people, the patient and the impatient.
For the impatient folks (me), you simply blend up the wine with frozen strawberries to add refreshingly frozen sweetness to the drink. For folks with some time to kill, you can throw the whole thing in the freezer and let it freeze, then easily scrape with a fork and spoon into glasses (sort of like we do in Bourbon Slushes).
It’s also great because the freezer friendly factor means you can have some now and later!
Ingredients in Frozen Rosé Wine Slush
This rosé wine slushie requires just three ingredients. We’ll start with a base of strawberries and follow those with your favorite brand of rosé. A dash of sugar finishes it off!
- Frozen Strawberries: First, you’ll need some frozen strawberries. I recommend 1 16 oz bag (about 4 cups) for the most delicious fruit-to-wine ratio!
- Rosé: As for the wine, you will need 1 750 ml bottle of rosé.
- Sugar: Sweeten things up with a dash of sugar, adding to your preferred taste.
How to make wine slushies with rosé
You know the saying “rosé all day,” right? Sort of cringe, but definitely relatable when frosé tastes this good. To make it, just blend!
- Blend the ingredients: Puree all of the ingredients in a blender until smooth. Taste and add sugar as needed. The amount of sugar will depend on the sweetness of your strawberries and wine.
- Serve and store: Serve immediately. Leftovers can be stored in a freezer-safe container and placed in the freezer. The mixture won’t freeze completely due to the alcohol, which allows you to scrape it out with a fork and spoon into glasses to serve!
Frozen rosé variations
Frozen rosé is nice in that it’s not exclusive to strawberries. You can honestly use any wine that you particularly love, though the sweeter wines work better. You can also switch things up in two main ways:
- Add juice: You can add a splash of orange, pineapple, or even cranberry juice for a slightly different flavor.
- Swap the fruit: Any berries are great in this, whether raspberry, blueberry, or even blackberry (though that one may be sort of tart!). Peaches and mangoes are delicious as well!
Different wine & fruit pairings
Mix things up and enjoy frosé your way (sorry, had to throw that rhyme in there) by trying a different wine and fruit pairing.
- Red wine: Red wine is great with mixed berries and a dash of orange juice!
- White wine: Blend white wine with frozen pineapple. You can throw in some coconut for an extra tropical vibe!
- Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc: Pinot grigio and sauvignon blanc both pair wonderfully with any of the above — pineapple, mixed berries… even mangoes!
