Just when you thought there was no way to top your favorite drink (rosé, obviously), introducing: frosé. Yes, it’s frozen rosé, and it’s the best thing ever. It’s exactly what it sounds like—a slushy, iced version of your summer beverage of choice—and Bon Appétit has the perfect recipe. There’s a time commitment involved so it’s a bit more complex than simply cracking open a bottle, but it’s worth it.
Start with a bottle of your favorite rosé. Pour it into a plastic container and freeze it for six hours. That’s your base. Next, create your own strawberry syrup by boiling 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of water in a pot. Add eight ounces of sliced strawberries, mix it all up, and let it sit for 30 minutes. Pour the strawberry mixture through a strainer to separate the liquid from the strawberries. That produces the most wonderfully bright and delicious-looking syrup. Drain the liquid portion and let it chill for 30 minutes. (You’re almost there. Keep reading.) Pour the frozen rosé, syrup, and 2 1/2 ounces of fresh lemon juice into a blender with one cup of ice. Blend and let the mixture chill for just a bit longer until it reaches a milkshake-like consistency. Blend one more time and, finally, you’re ready to drink.
