Cool off in style with this Strawberry Peach Frosé recipe! This perfect hot weather wine drink is blended with fresh fruit and lime juice to keep things tangy, refreshing, and delicious.
Today’s recipe is a fun one!With most parts of my country in a real heat wave, I know that finding refreshing drinks is a major win during these dog days of summer. Smoothies fit this bill nicely, so what’s more fun than a wine smoothie?
What is frosé?
Simply put, frosé is the common term for a frozen rosé wine cocktail.
I had not made frosé before testing this recipe; I am so happy with how it turned out. Frosé is said to have been developed in 2016 by bartender Justin Sievers at Bar Primi in New York.
How do I make frosé?
- When choosing a wine for this recipe, I recommend a rosé that is very “full bodied,” like a rosé made from Pinot Noir or Merlot. These will likely be darker in color and have a better flavor profile once frozen. Cold temperatures dull our taste buds, so choosing a wine that is too light will not produce as delicious of a result.
- Once you have the wine of choice, you’ll freeze the entire bottle for at least 5 hours. It will not freeze completely solid because of the alcohol content, but it will firm up.
- This recipe only requires 5 ingredients! Once your wine is frozen you’ll scrape it into a blender with some sugar, frozen strawberries, peaches, lime juice, and salt. Blend like a normal smoothie and then place back in the freezer to firm up once more (only about 15 minutes). Re-blend and you’re ready to serve!
I hope you enjoy this simple frosé recipe! Feel free to mix up the fruits by trying a different kind of berry or stone fruit. It should keep in the freezer for a few weeks, if you manage to have leftovers.
