Happy cocktail Saturday guys! I’m back for a special post to celebrate the start of summer with such a summery cocktail. I wasn’t planning on this post, but sometime mid-week I had a very, very strong desire to make frosé. Did I have the time? NO. Not even close, but we have a special weekend, so why not.
This frosé is simple but made with a slight twist. I froze everyone’s favorite rosé in ice cubes. The wine doesn’t fully freeze of course, but it’s close enough. I like to freeze the cubes overnight. Then I make a quick watermelon rosemary juice with a small squeeze of lemon. If you have the time, I’d freeze some of this mix into either ice cubes or popsicles. This step is optional, but the icy popsicles are a fun, delicious way to keep the drink icy without watering it down.
When you have the wine frozen, you can blend and enjoy! Just add all the frozen cubes of rosé to a blender. Add the watermelon juice and blend, blend, blend until the mix is a yummy slushy consistency.
I top my drinks off with a watermelon popsicle and fresh mint. SIMPLE, delicious, and so pretty too.
Keeping this post short, short, short in true cocktail Saturday form. Hope you guys have a wonderful Father’s Day weekend. And be sure to kick summer off with a fun (frosty, frozen) cocktail in hand.
