This easy Frosé recipe, aka Frozen Rosé, is a refreshing blend of rosé wine, Titos vodka and frozen peaches (as opposed to strawberries) TRUST ME, it's delicious.
It's my take on a popular Frosé served at a local restaurant that is AH-mazing! Plus, you can blend it up in less than 10 minutes making it a delicious cocktail to serve in the summertime!
If there’s one thing I want to indulge in on a hot summer’s day, it’s a cold Frosé. I love that it has a subtle sweetness, is naturally gluten and dairy free, and can be made in under 10 minutes!
And guess what?! Making frosé at home is much easier than it looks! Once you whip up a batch, you won't be able to stop making more. (Kind of like my batch of margaritas!)
Simply blend your favorite Rosé wine with frozen fruit like peaches or strawberries, add a sweetener, like honey or simple syrup, and VODKA (yes it's a nice kick) for a sweet adult beverage you can enjoy while you’re relaxing by the pool or serve for brunch.
What Is Frosé ?
In short, Frosé is blended Rosé wine. However, more often than not, people make it with frozen fruit, added liquor and a sometimes a sweetener like honey or agave.

🍷What You Need To Make Frosé
- Rosé: I like to use a drier Rosé like Pinot Noir or Grenache
- Frozen peaches: You always want to use frozen fruit for a Frosé or else it’ll be too watery, plus the sweetness of the peaches enhances the flavor!
- Honey: If your Rosé is dry you’re definitely going to want to add the honey, if it’s a sweeter variety then you won’t need as much
- Lemon juice: Only a small amount is used, but it really brightens the whole cocktail!
- Vodka: This is totally optional, but a fun addition to use in this boozy adult beverage
- Add all ingredients to the base of a high speed blender
- Blend on high until you get a slushy-like consistency
- Pour into your favorite wine glass, garnish with a fresh peach or mint leaf, and enjoy!
What Rosé Wine Is Best In A Frosé?
I prefer to use a dry Rosé because the flavor is much more full bodied than the sweeter varieties. Plus, the fruit will naturally add sweetness.
A few great rosé varieties are:
- Cabernet Sauvignon
- Pinot Noir
Make This In Advance
You don’t want to make your Frosé too far in advance because it will melt! However, if you want to make it ahead of time, blend it up and, once blended, pour it into an ice cube tray and freeze!
Then when you’re ready to enjoy it again, add the cubes to a blender and serve! You may need to add a touch more of rose or water.
Freezing Fruit For Frosé
You always want to make a Frosé with frozen fruit. If you don’t want to buy it from the grocery store, you can easily freeze your own fruit at home.
To freeze fruit you want to cut it up into small pieces and lay the pieces in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet. Place the baking sheet into the freezer for 20-30 minutes, then take it out, transfer the partially frozen fruit to a freezer safe bag, and return it to the freezer.
By partially freezing it first you prevent the fruit from sticking together and forming big clumps in the bag.
- Use a dry Rosé for the most flavor
- Make sure your fruit is frozen
- Amount of sweetener needed will vary based on Rosé variety
- Chill your wine glasses 20-30 minutes before serving
- Freeze frosé in ice cube trays, then blend again for an extra slushy consistency
Two Versions Of Frose At Popular Restaurants
As you can see from the photos above, there are many different ways you can make rose. One of the most common ways frose is made is with frozen strawberries. You can add any frozen fruit but I find strawberries and peaches result in the best drink.
Add the rose to ice cube trays and freeze a few ice cubes to add to a blender.
You can absolutely substitute the frozen peaches with frozen strawberries. You could also make this with frozen raspberries, watermelon, cherries, mango or passionfruit like I used in my passionfruit martini.
If you don’t want to use honey, you could sweeten it with agave syrup instead.
