- “It’s almost Labor Day.”
- “School is back in session.”
- “Summer’s over.”
That’s two truths and a lie in Houston, Texas. Around here, traditional seasons don’t work like they do in the movies. Summer weather doesn’t really end until nearly November. Sure, we might break out our non-cowboy boots and flannels but we’re just pretending. We want to feel included and Fall fashion is fun. But for those of you who don’t live here, (sorry) I’m trying to help you hold on to summer a little bit longer with the topic of this post: frosé aka frozen rosé aka wine slushie aka where-have-you-been-all-my-[21+]-life?!
Rosé is the quintessential summer wine and this endless summer frosé is the logical next step in severe summer heat. I know I’m not the only one who feels warm and fuzzy (emphasis on warm) after a generous amount of wine. I love fun cocktails (see my poptails recipe for confirmation) but I’m not a mixologist by any means so, although my head has been swimming with visions of this frozen adult treat since June, I was hesitant to make it because all the versions I found elsewhere online seemed unnecessarily complicated. I decided to just whip some up in the most straightforward and simple way I could think of and voila! Strawberry Pineapple fRosé for. your. nerves.
This takes less than one minute to make! Frozen fruit, [super] chilled rosé, and a blender are all you need to make this happen. One sip and you won’t care what season it is…or is supposed to be. 🙂 A couple of things to note: (1) The full recipe won’t fit into most blenders at once, so you’ll likely need to make this in two batches. (2) This takes just about two minutes to make when starting with frozen fruit but if starting with fresh fruit, be sure to throw it in the freezer at least an hour before you’ll need it.
Have you tried frosé before? Let me know below how you like this method. Thanks for reading!
- 1 bottle rosé of your choice super chilled
- 1 pint strawberries hulled and frozen
- 4 cups pineapple chunks frozen
Add all ingredients to a blender and pulse until smooth. Serve immediately. Garnish with fresh strawberries if you like.
Only half this recipe will fit into most blenders at one time, so you'll likely need to make it in two batches.
