Strawberry Frosé

As the temperature rises each degree I can picture myself in Downtown Detroit, enjoying frozen cocktails with my homegirls at our favorite patio restaurants. I can’t believe that we’re on the verge of having Summer canceled because of COVID. Frosé is one of my favorite warm-weather cocktails. I mean, its the best of both worlds- a boozy frozen cocktail made with one of the best wine selections, Rosé. I love turning a leftover bottle of the bubbly wine into frosé and love making a pitcher or three when entertaining guests in my home.

Since May is Michigan Wine Month, I am featuring my favorite Michigan wine brand- Leelanau Wine Cellars. Their Summer Sunset Rose Bubbly has a dry and airy body with notes of strawberry, melon, and rose flavors.

Please note: It is important to let the wine mixture to freeze first to get the perfect slushy consistency. I recommend making at least 4 hours before serving. Feeling boozy? Top each glass with a floater shot of tequila or vodka- you won’t be disappointed!

No simple syrup on hand?

Needed ingredients: 1 cup of pure can sugar & 1 cup of water.

In a small saucepan, mix sugar and water until both combined.

Heat over medium heat while stirring until sugar dissolves.

Cool and refrigerate until ready for cocktail mixing.
