A refreshing frozen wine cocktail - that's pretty (and tasty!) in pink.

Raspberry Frosé is a refreshing wine slush cocktail made with raspberries, peach and rose wine. Make it two ways: in a blender or an ice cream machine!

This Raspberry Frosé is one of my favorite wine cocktails, and one my friends are fans of too. I created this wine slush recipe and four more for the California Wines Fresh & Delicious California Wine Cocktails ebook, which you can download for free.

This frozen rose recipe has the same Prince-based inspiration as the Cranberry Rosé wine cocktail from the California Wines Cocktails for the Holidays. Purple Reign is in formulation – stay tuned!

How to make a Raspberry Frose wine slush:

This cocktail feels (and tastes) like a bright pink celebration of summer. Once you’ve blended up the base, you can pour it in an ice cream machine or freeze it and pop it back in the blender. Either way, make sure you allow plenty of time for freezing before planning to serve. The sweetness in the finished wine slush cocktail will vary based on the wine you choose and the natural sugar in the fruit. Both methods deliver equally delicious results – although the ice cream machine has less waiting, which I appreciate. 

My friend Meg recently shared her favorite summer wine cocktail too: this Strawberry Lemon Smash. It’s loaded with fresh strawberries, tangy lemons and sparkling wine, and definitely worth a try. You’ll notice we’re both edible flower fans, so when we ask each other if they are overkill, we already know the answer. 🙂 (Check out my Edible Flower Pistachio Shortbread Cookies!) Feel free to make yours sans blooms.

The red berry flavors of rosé wine are refreshing anytime – made even more so by freezing. If you have sweet or semi-dry rose and fresh fruit, I don’t think you’ll need to add sweetener.  If your raspberries or the peach were frozen, or aren’t at their peak, a little sugar might help.

The red berry flavors of California rosé are especially refreshing on hot summer days. This wine style ranges in flavor from delicate, refined and dry to bright and sweet with a hint of creaminess.

Frequently Asked Questions about this Wine Slush recipe:

Can I use any rosé wine for frose? Can I use white or red wine?

You can use any rosé you choose in this recipe. The amount of sweetness in the wine will affect the flavor, so be sure to taste the base as noted in the recipe and adjust sugar prior to freezing. You can substitute a sweeter white wine in the recipe easily (Riesling, Muscat/Muscato, or a blend) but I wouldn’t recommend red wines.

Can I use frozen fruit?

Absolutely. You can use frozen raspberries or even a mix of berries. You could also use frozen peaches or frozen nectarines.

How do you make wine slushies without a blender?

You can make this wine slush with an ice cream machine or blender.

Can you freeze wine for slushies?

Yes. Since wine has a low alcohol content, it freezes well. Adding fresh fruit for the wine slush makes the consistency even better.

Does red wine freeze in the freezer?

Yes. Red or white wine will freeze solid.

What is Frose made of?

Frose is made of rose wine, fruit, and sugar or other sweetener. Ice is sometimes added, although most frose recipes simply freeze the drink base.

Is Frose alcoholic?

Yes. Frose is made with rose wine.
