It was late June in Colorado and the temperature was starting to reach the mid 90’s. Not so bad unless you don’t have AC and your house spends nearly the whole day being baked in the sun. By 2 pm the house felt like an oven and would not cool down until the wee hours of the morning. I couldn’t bring myself to cook, the stove was my enemy and I was desperate for something cold and refreshing.
I found a grapefruit rose at the liquor store and decided to give the trending frose a try. If when you hear the word “frose” you think of the popular Disney movie or the word “frozen” you’re not far off! But it’s actually the name of a wine slushy and it is unbelievably simple to make! The name is a clever contraction of the words “frozen” and “rose,” the latter of which is a pink wine.
You pour the wine into ice cube trays and freeze them overnight. Then you pop the cubes into a blender or food processor with a little leftover wine or in this case grapefruit juice, and voila! The most delicious, frozen adult beverage your summer could ever want. This addicting summer drink is my new favorite thing to make but be careful, you can fit almost the entire bottle of frose in a wine glass and it goes down like a sonic slushy after 8 pm!
