Frosé aka Frozen Rosé
1 bottle (750 ml) bold rosé, such as a bottle of our Grenache Rosé or Sangiovese Rosé
½ cup (100 g) granulated sugar
2 cups (8 ounces) strawberries, , hulled and quartered
¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon (2 ½ ounces) fresh lemon juice
Strawberry Simple Syrup
Stir together 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and continually stir until sugar completely dissolves—about 3 minutes. Remove saucepan from the heat and immediately add the strawberries. Let the mixture sit at room temp for 30 minutes to infuse flavor.
Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a small bowl. Discard strawberries. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Scrape frozen rosé into a large blender. Add lemon juice, 3 1/2 ounces (slightly less than 1/2 cup) strawberry syrup and 1 cup crushed ice. Purée until smooth.
Can you add vodka to frosé? Yes, up to 1/4 cup cold vodka can be added to the blender.
You have the option to serve the frosé now OR transfer the blender jar to the freezer for about 25 more minutes for a thicker consistency. If you freeze a second time, blend the mixture once more before serving.
Pour rosé into a 9×13 pan and freeze for 6 hours. It won't solidify completely due to the alcohol, but it will get firm.
