This mesmerizing frosé recipe is dangerously tasty and beyond easy to make. Just add fruit, vodka, grenadine, and frozen rosé cubes, then get ready to enjoy your new favorite cocktail!
Don’t you love the blending of two words? Frosé. Frozen rosé! Clever and cute!
What I love about this cocktail is it’s like drinking a slushie. And not your average slushie, but delicious and vibrant wine slushies. I heard about this easy frose recipe a few years back from my friend, Sadee. It’s one of her family’s backyard, go-to summer cocktails. So, I thought I’d try my hand at it and boy, I’m glad I did.
What is unique about this frosé recipe?
The taste. If you served this to someone who didn’t know what was in it, it would take them a few sips to figure it out. The elusive taste is wine. It’s subtle enough to be intriguing but familiar enough that you recognize the rosé.
Can I use white wine instead of rosé?
Yes, you sure can. Just know that the taste will change because of the distinct difference between white wine and rosé. I’ve made it both ways, with sauvignon blanc and with rosé, and truthfully, I like it better with rosé.

- Rosé pairs so nicely with strawberries but you could use any berry in this cocktail.
- Another great combination is a watermelon frosé.
- Be sure to wash your strawberries well as they are one of the top fruits grown with heavy pesticides. Just use a little unscented, natural foaming hand soap and lightly rub the strawberries between your hands. Rinse well before using.
- Make sure to fill your ice cube trays with rosé at least 8 hours before you need them, overnight is best.
- I use a big silicone ice cube tray, but normal sized trays are okay.
- You don’t need a really expensive rosé, so try it with a mid-level wine.
- Using grenadine not only adds a pretty deep red color but is sweet so you don’t have to use simple syrup.
- Use a good blender but if you don’t have a good one, you’ll just need to process it longer.
- Adjust the amount of ice cubes to your taste, the more ice cubes, the thicker the cocktail will be.
- You can also use frozen strawberries in this cocktail, but I prefer fresh strawberry.
How to make a frosé cocktail
The Night Before
The night before you make this cocktail, pour some rosé wine into an ice cube tray and place in the freezer to allow the rosé to freeze overnight.
Gather the ingredients – frozen rosé, strawberries, vodka and grenadine.
Wash 10 strawberries and wash them well. Cut 8 strawberries in pieces and put in the blender. Cut a slit into the bottom of the last two strawberries (for the garnish) and set them aside. (A)
Measure 4 ounces of vodka. (B)
Measure 1 ounce of Grenadine. (C)
Add 4 large frozen rosé ice cubes in the blender (8 if you are using a regular ice cube tray). (D)
This is so exciting, isn’t it? It can’t just be me that loves to craft cocktails. And drink them.
Add a few more ice cubes and blend until thick. Don’t be afraid to add more ice cubes until it reaches the right consistency.
Divide and pour the frosé between the two glasses and stick a strawberry on the side of both glasses.
