Rosé is fun, it's pink, and it’s great on a hot day, whats not to like? The original idea for this drink was to make single serve Frosé cocktails. I wanted something that you could just leave in the freezer and enjoy when ever you wanted - even if everyone else is drinking beer. I’m not sure that I achieved what I set out to do, the drink doesn't really get slushy, but it is delicious so I thought I would share anyway.
As always, I advise you to pick your Rosé the same way I do, aka whichever label strikes your fancy. There are lots of options for customizing this, including just using the ice cubes to keep your glass of Rosé chilled and full strength. Either way this is ideal for day drinking when the weather warms up.
Rosé two ways
4 oz. Rosé
3/4 oz. lemon juice
3/4 oz. rose simple syrup (use the simple syrup recipe from this post, and replace water with rose water)
Combine all ingredients with ice in a shaker, shake until cold.
Grapefruit Frosé ice cubes
1 part Grapefruit juice
3 parts Rosé
Combine and pour into ice cube trays. Freeze for 8 hours or over night.
Place a Grapefruit Frosé ice cube in a stemless wine glass. Pour the Rosé cocktail love the ice cube and top with soda water.
I'm looking for some new ideas, and I would love to hear about some of your hot weather staples. Let me know your fav summer cocktail in the comments.
