Not to sound basic or anything, but I almost can’t turn down a glass of a good frosé slushie. Have you tried it?! It’s literally just rosé in slushie or granita form, but it’s so refreshing and such a fun way to get your sip on. There’s a restaurant in Modesto that serves a really great frosé, but I kind of wanted to try to make it at home. And as luck would have it, it’s so simple I could do it with my eyes closed. All you need is one of thesebeauties! Here’s how to make frosé (frozen rosé) with an ice cream maker!
How to Make Frosé (Frozen Rosé) with an Ice Cream Maker
Honestly, this is almost a joke of a blog post, because if you have a rosé you love, you literally just pour it in the ice cream maker and press start. Twenty minutes later, it’s a slushie! A reallllly good slushie. But! If you need a little more guidance or want to jazz it up a bit, you can add a couple of exciting things. Read on.
- One bottle of rosé that you love! I like to use one that’s on the sweeter side. And rumor has it that Arbor Mist actually makes an amazing frosé. Haven’t tried it myself yet, though.
- Optional: 1/4 cup simple syrup
- Optional: finely chopped frozen strawberries or raspberries
Step 1: Pour the entire bottle of rosé into the ice cream maker and press start.
Step 2: Check back after 15 minutes. If it’s starting to turn into slush, dip in a spoon and take a little taste. If you like your frosé a little sweeter, add in about 1/4 cup of simple syrup. Let it mix for a minute or two and taste again. Add additional simple syrup teaspoon by teaspoon until it reaches your desired sweetness.
Step 3: If you’d like some fruit added in, toss in about 1/2 cup of finely chopped frozen strawberries or raspberries. They should be fine enough that you could drink them through a straw to maintain the texture of the frosé.
Step 4: Once the frosé reaches your desired texture (usually about 20-25 minutes), turn the ice cream maker off and serve!
This is such a fun trick to have in your back pocket for summer entertaining! It’s literally a set-it-and-forget-it drink, so it’s perfect to have going at parties or girls’ nights. There’s no trick about how to make frosé (frozen rosé) with an ice cream maker other than to just give it a shot! And as always, please drink responsibly and only if you’re over 21. Cheers! xoxo
