You guys. This is probably the most excited I have ever been to share a recipe with you all! ‘Tis the season for rosé, and this is the most refreshing summer treat using the festive drink.
You’ve probably heard of frosé (frozen rosé), which is basically a slushie made with rosé. I finally hopped on the bandwagon and made a batch in honor of summer weather finally arriving, and of course, had to put my own fruity twist on it. The first thing that came to mind was watermelon, and then naturally I had to add a little lime (if you haven’t noticed, I add lime to almost anything fruity!). So, without further ado, here is how I made my watermelon lime frosé…
(for two delish frosés)
01. 1/2 standard bottle of rosé
02. 1/2 mini watermelon
03. 1/2 lime, juiced
04. 1/2 cup sugar
05. Lime slices (for garnish)
01. The night before: pour the rosé into an ice cube tray and slice mini watermelon in half. From one half of the watermelon, cut up roughly 2 cups into small cubes. Freeze the rosé ice cubes and small watermelon cubes overnight (or until frozen).
02. When it’s time to make the frosé, blend the frozen watermelon until smooth. Then, strain the juice to remove any pulp or seeds. Take 1/4 cup of this juice and put on the stove over medium heat with the sugar. Whisk until the sugar dissolves, then remove from heat and let the mixture cool to room temperature.
03. Blend about another cup or two of watermelon to create 1/4 cup more juice. Once fully blended, add in the sugar/watermelon juice that has cooled to room temperature, the rosé ice cubes, and the juice from half a lime. Blend until it creates a slushy texture. (If it’s too smoothie-like, you can add a few regular ice cubes to get more of a frozen, slushy-like texture.)
04. Carve out any remaining watermelon, then scoop the frosé into it. Garnish with lime slices and enjoy!
