Ever since Frosé hit the scene last summer I have been dying to try to make my own version of this cult favorite summer cocktail. This past week I picked up a watermelon at Trader Joe’s and knew it was the perfect chance to perfect this recipe for Watermelon Frozen Rosé!
There are few things that scream summer. Peonies, pooltime and Rosé are some of my favorite remembrances of summer. And what better way to enjoy Rosé than in slushy form. I mean, nothing says pool time more than a frozen cocktail!

The best part of this recipe is how simple the ingredients are. Watermelon, Rosé and a few tablespoons of sugar. Nothing fancy, nothing complicated. Because summer is all about ease and getting out of the kitchen and getting outside!
Step 1: Freeze the Rosé
The first step is to freeze your Rosé. I chose to freeze it in ice cube trays. Freezing the wine in the ice cube tray works great for this recipe since we will be blending the ingredients. Just don’t freeze the Rosé in the bottle. It will be too hard to get out!
The wine will never fully freeze like water due to the alcohol content. Freeze the wine for at least 6 hours.
step 2: Cube the watermelon
Once the Rosé is frozen, cut up your watermelon. We will be using roughly 3 cups of cubed watermelon. Depending on the size of your watermelon, this will be 1/4-1/2 of a watermelon.
Step 3: Blend It Together!
Add the wine ice cubes and watermelon to a blender and pulse until blended. Add in 2-3 tablespoons of granulated sugar and blend together. The sugar cuts down on the acidity of the wine and makes a smoother finish. Feel free to use less sugar.
Step 4: Drink!
Pour the Watermelon Frozen Rosé into cute glasses and garnish with fresh mint.
Now, is there anything better?!
