As a child (okay, even now) there’s not a lot of things that are as refreshing as an Icee in the summer. Seriously, whatever way you choose to drink yours – Cherry, white cherry, coke, white cherry + coke combo swirl – The combinations go on. Well, what if we told you there was a whole new version of an Icee? The adult version that is sure to be your new summer staple. Forget rosé all day – try frosé all summer (and maybe the first half of Fall too). Frosé has hit a popularity like no other during the Summer of 2016, and we’re making our own this Labor Day weekend as we officially say goodbye to Summer.
Here’s the deal – Frosé is ridiculously easy to make, and only takes a few ingredients. What does that mean for you? Minimal effort and time in the kitchen, and more time poolside with your friends counting down the days to when Grey’s Anatomy returns (PSA – less than 10).
You’ll want to half the strawberries and throw them in the blender. Then sprinkle the sugar over them and mix with a spoon. You’re not going to blend yet – you want the strawberries to take in some of that sugar before making the puree.
Let that sit for five minutes and then add in the vodka – blend.
Once blended, add in the rosé and ice – blend again. You’ll want a slushy texture here – but really, as long as everything is blended, the consistency is up to you! If it’s a little too strong (i.e – you had a heavy-handed vodka pour), feel free to throw more strawberries and sugar in.
It’s as easy as that, folks. In less than five minutes you’ll be sipping on one of the most delicious drinks of the summer.
So there you have it – Our favorite drink to round out the season. What’s your favorite version of frosé? We’d love to hear your variations!
