Frose has taken over the summer. A blended cocktail made with muddled strawberries, lemon juice and your favorite rose is easy to make and totally delicious. here’s how to do it:
Choose a full-flavored and darke rosé for freezing – not one that is super pale. It will lose some of its color and will be a bit diluted after freezing and blending; you want something that can hold its own. One Hope’s California Rose is a medium bodied wine that is great on it’s own or in cocktails like this.
Falvors of fresh strawberry, red cherry, and watermelon aromas jump out of the glass. The juicy palate adds volume into the finish and it’s got just the right amount of citrus notes to balance the strawberries. Plus, there is give back. Every bottle helps to educate 50 women on the symptoms and risks of ovarian cancer.
Summer Strawberry Frose
1 750 ml bottle OneHope California Rose
8 ounces strawberries, hulled, quartered
2½ ounces fresh lemon juice
Pour rosé into a 13×9″ pan and freeze until almost solid (it won’t completely solidify due to the alcohol), at least 6 hours.
Meanwhile,muddle strawberries and leave to soak in their own juices and chill in the fridge.
Scrape rosé into a blender. Add lemon juice, the strawberries and 1 cup crushed ice and purée until smooth. Transfer blender jar to freezer and freeze until frosé is thickened (aim for milkshake consistency), 25–35 minutes.
Blend again until frosé is slushy. Divide among glasses.
