Easy Frosé Recipe

Unless you've been living under a rock, and not checked Twitter or Instagram lately, you will have seen Frosé. It is basically frozen Rosé wine, made into a cocktail with splash of vodka and some strawberry syrup. I have seen a few recipes but I have put together my own simple recpie for you try out.

Depending on how many people you are making this for, and now boozy you want it, you can aways add more or less vodka... depending on what kind of occasion you are looking for. I think with my recipe it is fairly boozy but not in a paint thinner kind of way, just so you can taste the flavours and not feel like you are drinking an overly sweet smoothie.

I am not the world's biggest rose fan, as I am more of white or red drinker, but this combination does work really well together and I think it's perfect for a summers day, letting you sit back and pretend that you are on a hot sunny beach somewhere exotic.

First things first, you'll need to get a bottle of rose. I used a Blossom Hill one, you don't need to splash out on a £10-15 bottle as you are going to be adding things to it, so you won't be able to notice the more subtle tastes of a better quality bottle anyway.

Tip the rose into a plastic tub and leave in the freezer for at least 8 hours, I did this overnight but it needs to be at least 8 so it starts to crystallise. It won't freeze completely as it contains alcohol but will almost look like boozy slush puppies when you are done.


Then its time to make the syrup! I chopped into small pieces a handful of strawberries and covered them with around 100g of sugar. I then put this on a low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Be careful not to have the heat too high as the sugar will burn and you will need to start over again. Once this has turned into a pink liquid with a syrup texture, leave it to cool down. Ideally put into the fridge until your guests arrive or until you make your drink. If you are impatient, you could cool this down by placing the pan in cold water with ice cubes. Don't add water to the syrup as this will dilute the sugar and won't taste as sweet.

Once the syrup is cooled down pour it into a sieve and push the syrup through with a wooden spoon. This is to stop any pips getting into your drink, otherwise it will be a lumpy smoothie texture and won't be very nice when you come to drink it.

Finally combine the syrup and two to three shots of vodka with the frozen rose in a food processor or blender. This only takes a few seconds as you are only looking to mix the ingredients together, so be careful not over do it as it could go really watery.


Once your cocktail has been mixed, add it to your favourite cocktail glass and a strawberry to garnish. Then the only thing to do is to sit back and enjoy.

  1. Ooohh they look delicious! I'll have to give them a try soon before summer is over because by then I'll be well into the mulled wine!
