Frozen Rosé – also known as Frosé – is quite possibly my favorite frozen beverage but it gets even more delicious with the addition of grapefruit. Trust me, this Grapefruit Rosé is always a hit at my parties.
Despite the fact that my job requires me to work a season ahead (my poor family is so confused at every holiday), summer season has arrived here in Nashville!
It is HOT outside! I’ve been on a rosé kick lately, and did you know there is sparkling rosé? Oh yes!
I used a sparkling rosé in this frozen rosé grapefruit cocktail also read as my new summer obsession.
I’ve been making one every night this week (not even sorry) because they’re not too sweet, so refreshing, and that color! Gorg! Don’t worry though, a non-sparkling rosé is also fine!
SoI happen to think this is a party perfect cocktail, but it’s also easy enough to make for a weeknight wind-down sipper. Monday night? Do it. Tuesday night? Yes. Every night = absolutely!
I have a soft spot for sweet drinks but sometimes I want a fruity drink that isn’t laden with sugary sweetness (also try my favorite Bay Breeze Cocktail – yum). I chose a sparkling rosé with sweet undertones which paired perfectly with the tartness of ruby red grapefruits. You can absolutely use any rosé you like, however!
You only need a few ingredients to make this pretty frozen rosé. Plus, you can make grapefruit flags for skewers. Seriously, how cute is a tiny wedge of grapefruit on a skewer? It looks just like a little flag so basically, you must make one while your cocktail is blending. Of course you can serve it on ice instead of frozen if you prefer. I love the little bubbles from the sparkling rosé blended with the ice though!
I have this recipe listed out for 1 cocktail, but if you’re throwing a party and want to increase the servings, simply click the “1” below and adjust to your desired number of servings! Nifty, huh?
I wanted to give you a few Frosé making tips so you are sure to be a pro.
Tips for Making Frozen Rosé
- A blender is a must. Here is the blender I use, if you’re in the market.
- Use fresh ingredients. Juice your own ruby red grapefruit, but don’t worry, store-bought juice is fine too.
- Use crushed ice. Your blender will thank you for using crushed ice instead of large cubes.
- Pick any Rosé, in a blended drink, it’ll all taste amazing.
- Start off slow. Don’t start your blender off on high speed. We know you’re ready to sip sip away, but start off slow to blend any frozen beverage effectively.
- Chill your glasses! What’s a Frozen Rosé that melts in 4 seconds? Not a Frozen Rosé. Keep your glasses chilled!
- Garnish with flair! Everything is tastier (and prettier) with a little garnish on top. Think mint or fresh fruit slices.
