The Best Strawberry Frosé
There are so many ways to make Frosé. I tried out a couple of different methods, and this one is by far my favorite! It is the simplest, tastiest and, added bonus, can be enjoyed 3 different ways:
1. Immediately, Straight out of the Blender
2. In an Hour, after being popped in the Freezer
3. That Night, as a Granita
If you’re anything like me, you like (and need!!!) options. This way I can prep ahead, or Wow guests as they are coming through the door. My favorite way, and what you see in the picture above, is #2. The pop the blender back into the freezer for an hour or so method. Regardless of which way you choose, yo only need 5 simple ingredients. Bottle of Rose, Strawberries, Sugar, Lemon and……my secret ingredient….Vodka!!! The Vodka helps with the freezing consistency, making this Frosé perfection!
- 1 Bottle COLD Rosé
- 1 Pint Strawberries, hulled and stemmed
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 1/2 Lemon, juiced
- 1/3 Cup Vodka
Put all ingredients (Rosé, strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and vodka in a blender. Blend until strawberries are puréed. Taste for sweetness/tartness. (Add more sugar or lemon juice if needed…depending on sweetness of strawberries and Rosé). Add 1 1/2 – 2 cups of ice and pulse until desired consistency. Serve on glass immediately, because you deserve it! But my favorite way is to pop the blender right into the freezer for 30-45 minutes (or until your guests arrive) and then you have the PERFECT FROSÉ, like you see in the pictures above. Or, you can pour onto a flat cookie sheet and freeze for 2 hours. Then, scrape “granita” with a fork to fluff and then refreeze until you are ready for a fun, refreshing dessert! Just scrape again with a fork and serve in a little dish or pretty bowl. ENJOY!!!
