Break out your pool chairs — it’s time for my strawberry frose recipe!
It’s SUMMER, when the drinks are chilled and the cocktail recipes have fruit-filled flavors. And what better way to welcome in this time than with the wine slushie wonder known as frose? Frozen fruit blended with your favorite rose wine make for a refreshing hot weather beverage.
If you loved my other alcoholic drinks like planters punch, hippie juice, or that childhood favorite turned adult beverage creamsicle drink, or my fave mocktail lime rickey, you’ll flip for my strawberry frosé recipe!
Grab a blender and let’s get going!
A good frose isn’t just frozen rose and fruit — it takes those flavors over the top and piles on the best alcohol has to offer. This strawberry frosé recipe nails it!
- Refreshing in every sip
- Perfect for picnics, barbecues, pool days, and more!
- So versatile!
- EASY — two steps!
How To Make Strawberry Frose Recipe
Now, let’s make sure you get the most refreshing glass of frose you’ve ever had!
The steps to make are simple; the ingredients are even simpler! Here are a few tricks of mine to make sure your strawberry frosé slush experience sings.
- Fruit: I, of course, adore strawberries in this frose recipe, but if you have another type of frozen fruit on hand, go for it! Raspberries, blueberries, and pineapple are other great choices.
- Rose: The type of rose you use doesn’t matter — just choose your favorite brand! I also sometimes swap it up by using sparkling rose. It gives the final frose an extra burst of fanciness!
- Chambord: The additional alcohols in this recipe are what give it such a well-rounded flavor — and punch! Chambord especially is a drink you might not have worked with before, but it’s well worth the investment for the deep blackberry flavor it brings!
Tools to Make
Believe it or not, there are only two — yes, TWO — tools you need in your quest to figure out how to make frosé in a blender!
- Ice cube trays for freezing your rose
- Blender for mixing it all up
The blender really can’t be substituted for anything else — you could try to use a food processor, but you won’t get as smooth a blend on the ice. Go for a nice, high-quality blender, like this one!
How Long Can You Keep This In The Fridge?
Since it’s more of a slushie than a smoothie, treat your frosé like any other melty ice treat — and only leave it in the fridge for a day or two! The ice and other frozen bits will melt the longer they’re out of the freezer, so your frosé will quickly become just another cocktail. Which will still be delicious! Just won’t have that texture we all love.
Can You Freeze This?
YES! Your frosé LOVES the freezer. If you have more than you drink, at the end of your party, pour into small containers and freeze for up to a full year.
When you want to indulge again, simply blend up your frozen frosé!
Make Ahead Tips
You can always make the full frosé ahead of time and store in the freezer until ready, but this recipe is SO easy and SO quick that you should have no problem making it fresh every time!
My biggest and best-serving recommendation: serve this frosé recipe by the pool. Or by the ocean. Or by some body of water while the sun is high and hot and the sky is clear. Or by the porch!
Now, some more fun variations!
- Rosé is essential to this recipe. If you love strawberries together with champagne, you gotta try strawberry champagne!
- Frosé is usually made with strawberries or watermelon if you love a refreshing summer drink like frosé, try watermelon sangria.
- Go ahead and slice those strawberries and other fruits and turn it into a rose sangria!
- 1 (750 ml) bottle rose
- 1 cup ice
- 20 ounces (about 4 cups) whole frozen strawberries
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4-1/2 cup lemon vodka
- 2 tablespoons Chambord, optional
- 2-4 tablespoons granulated sugar
- Freeze Rose in ice cube trays overnight.
- In a blender, add ice, frozen strawberries, water, lemon vodka, Chambord, and sugar. Blend just until mixture has reduced enough to accommodate the cubes of Rose. Add the Rose and blend until completely smooth. Pour into individual glasses and serve.
