A frosé – or frozé – is a frozen cocktail made with rosé wine, and perfect for summer! This pink and boozy slushie is not a tradition born at the beach clubs of St. Tropez, but has taken bars and restaurants all over the country by storm. Frosé is the “it” cocktail this summer – and it looks like it’s here to stay.
The best frosés are made with a full-flavored, full-bodied, dark-colored rosé, such as Pinot Noir or Merlot varietal, to hold up to its eventual dilution.
