The pandemic lockdown continues, and if you are working from home, and/or homeschooling, and doing even HALF as much laundry every day as I am, you might need a break and a drink. 🙂 Did you know you can make your own Frosé?
Frosé is frozen rosé. And it is really simple to make.
I had heard about a Frosé machine that is dedicated just to making the drink, but reviews weren’t that great, and I don’t always love a gadget that only does one thing, so I kept looking.
I was seeing lots of recipes that utilize a regular ice cream maker. I have the Cuisinart ice cream maker, and use it all the time (have you tried my Stroopwafel ice cream?) so I went with that.
This machine is really easy to use. You just keep the canister frozen so that you can make a treat anytime the urge hits. Then when you want to make something, just add the ingredients to the canister, insert the paddle, and turn on the machine. The canister rotates and does all the work for you.
So I fired mine up to make some Frosé.
The recipe I decided on was this one from the Food Network:
- One 750 ml bottle of chilled rosé
- 2 cups of strawberries, hulled and halved
- 1/2 cup of superfine sugar
- 1/3 cup of lemon juice (about 3 lemons)
Before putting into the ice cream maker, purée the strawberries, sugar, a little bit of rosé, and the lemon juice until smooth. (I didn’t want a tart drink, so I only used about half of the lemon juice called for in the recipe.)
Then pour the purée into the ice cream maker, along with the whole bottle of rosé. The whole bottle. You’re welcome. 🙂
Churn until the mixture is thick and slushy. My machine did this in about 30 minutes.
Pour into a glass and garnish with strawberries. I got these vintage champagne glasses at antique shop. I love this era of champagne glasses before we started drinking from flutes.
This is my preferred shape. If you love to watch old movies, you’ll often see people drinking from these. They’re great for ice cream and frosé, too.
Pop in a straw, and have yourself a lovely Frosé break.
Or, if you ARE homeschooling and working and doing laundry, you might need to skip the glass and just stick a straw right in the canister. 🙂 No judgement here.
This is a really tasty and refreshing drink. And if you don’t drink it all during one Zoom Happy Hour, 🙂 you just put it back in the freezer. It stays slushy, ready for next time.
So if need a new challenge, whip up some frosé, and let me know how it goes!
And I’d love for you to follow me on Pinterest!
