Summer is officially here and this chilly pink beverage is everywhere so here's how to make it from the safety of your own home.
First things first, it's pronounced fro-ZAY. Next, I'll bet you're asking what exactly frosé is. Well, frozen rosé slushies are a summer essential - or, at least, they were the official drink of last summer. Since the trend first stormed the drinks scene way back in 2016, it doesn't appear to have lost much (or any) traction.
Even though we're confined to the safety of our own homes right now, these frozen delights can help us herald the arrival of summer - even if you are stuck in your back garden instead of sipping in a beer garden somewhere with your pals. Shots of these frosted glasses, complete with flower petals and pastel paper straws, are plastered across our Instagram feeds (#frosé) so we think now is the time to try your hand at making this cocktail.
We hit up the experts over at Ruffino Wines to discover what it takes to whip up the delicious beverage at home. The boozy drink is made by mixing a bottle of fruity rosé wine with lemon juice and sugar in a blender and then freezing overnight. You can also add things like fruit, ice and other spirits such as Limoncello or Grand Marnier liqueur or even prosecco to mix up the flavour to suit your taste – enjoy!
