Making summer Frose had become something of an annual opening of the summer season in our house. It is the most refreshing option I find for a balmy summer day & easy as cake to whip up for a crowd. We updated the frozen rose idea by adding our own variation of citrus sweet to the summertime favorite to create a Citrus Frose Recipe that is the only drink required for all your summer gatherings.
Watch the step-by-step video as we take our favorite yellow tail new Rose variety and create a citrus summer frozen wine that will instantly quench an entire party. Serve the freshly blended Frose recipe in freshly cut fruit to make a perfect statement for starting off our favorite season of parties!
A summer frose made even better with Citrus and fun!
- 1 bottle yellow tail Rose
- 1/2 cup Pineapple Juice
- 1/2 cup Grapefruit Juice
- 2 tbsp Simple Syrup
Start by making the frozen wine. To do this chill the new yellow tail Rose in ice cube trays for 4-6 hours, or until Rose ice cubes are formed.
Next pull out the blender and stack it with the ice cubes.
Add in the juices, simple syrup and the rest of the bottle of Rose.
Blend until Frose wine slushies are formed.
Cut up fruit to serve the citrus Frose in or use glasses rimmed with sugar.
Once the summer citrus Frose has been blended, serve immediately. If you are hoping to serve this as the night goes on, simply cover the blender and place in fridge and then blend again when ready to serve.
How to find the best wine for making Frose?
We love the new yellow tail Rose for this recipe because it is crisp and sweet and blends up perfectly for summer. When looking for a wine that will translate into frozen wine slushie well you’ll want to look for one that is sweet and not too dry. Rose if obviously our favorite, but once we made a similar version with a red wine and it came out really tasty as well. Not sure what we could call that Cabse or Frocab? ;)
If you’re aiming for the fun party look of serving your frozen rose in fruit, you’ll want to scoop out the insides but leave a nice coating of fruit and flesh on the bottom. Using fruits that hold their form well, like watermelon, pineapple and thick skinned grapefruit work the best. If you’d rather serve the frose recipe in glasses, it is easy to cut the fruit up to serve a’la tropical smoothie style. If you’ve ever been interested to know what freezing wine does to the taste, you’ll be pleased to know it doesn’t harm it at all!
Cheers to summer of frozen wine fun.
