Like pretty much everything in my life, I’m a year+ behind the times in terms of trends – drink trends, in this case. Frosé became an internet sensation a few summers but it’s just now being cranked out in my Iowa kitchen. Story of my life. That said, we’re going with “better late than never” here – emphasis on BETTER since hello! Vodka! – because this simple, 3-ingredient cocktail recipe has been blended up a bunch of times at my house over the past few weeks and there’s no end in sight.

What to know about Boozy Frosé:

  • It’s easy. Freeze wine then blend with vodka and strawberry simple syrup. Boom.
  • It’s wine-based. If you don’t like Rosé wine, you probably won’t like Boozy Frosé. If you DO like wine (my people,) you will love this cocktail.
  • It’s NOT sweet. Although it looks like some sort of daiquiri or margarita, this frozen cocktail is essentially just blended frozen wine and vodka.

Who’s thirsty?

How to Make Boozy Frosé:

One thing you need to do is plan ahead for these babies. The night before you want to enjoy Boozy Frosé, pour 1 bottle Rosé wine into a gallon Ziplock bag set inside a dish (in case of leaks,) and freeze overnight. Because of the alcohol in the wine, it will not freeze solid. Also, look for a Rosé that’s darker in color as wine tends to lose a little bit of flavor once frozen.

Next make the strawberry simple syrup. In a mason jar (or glass bowl or saucepan,) combine 1/2 cup each water and sugar then microwave until bubbling, 1-1/2 minutes. Stir until the sugar has dissolved then carefully add 1 cup chopped strawberries and refrigerate overnight. Strain through a fine mesh sieve, and voila – strawberry simple syrup!

Time to drink! Add the frozen wine to a blender with 1/4 cup vodka plus 4 Tablespoons strawberry simple syrup (or more or less.) Blend until smooth then taste and add more simple syrup if desired. Note: once the Frosé starts to melt the sweetness intensifies, plus the sweetness intensifies once you’ve had a drink, so add more syrup sparingly.

Pour into glasses, stick a straw inside, and get to sippin’, my friend! I hope you love this fun and frosty frozen cocktail – enjoy!
