In the world of frozen cocktails, there’s one drink in particular that has been catching everyone’s attention lately – the Frosé. Today I’ll be walking you through my own spin on this popular frozen rosé wine trend in proper Queen Bee fashion.
I introduce to you: the Red Berry Frosé! I can’t wait to show you how to make one easily at home. So let’s get straight to it.
While this Red Berry Frosé has several ingredients you’ll need to gather, the great news is that you can blend up in seconds. You simply add all the ingredients in a blender, top with ice, and blend together again until smooth – it’s as easy as 1,2,3! Not only that, but it is truly a mouthwatering cocktail.
As the name of the cocktail is the Red Berry Frosé, let’s chat about the importance of the berries themselves. Raspberries and strawberries are quite obviously the stars of the show in this recipe. These fruits are not only responsible for the cocktail’s lovely color, but they also infuse the drink with a natural berry flavor. Raspberries have this wonderful tartness, while strawberries come with a sweet, juicy burst, creating a perfect harmony between the two. They also perfectly match the sweetness of the rosé when blended together.
Speaking of which, let’s get into the booze! The cocktail has the undeniable charm of sparkling rosé. Sparkling rosé brings a gentle effervescence and a touch of fruity sweetness, creating a base that’s both tantalizing and refreshing. When you add vodka to the mix, the Red Berry Frosé takes on a sharper edge, delivering a kick that balances the sweetness and adds a hint of boldness.
For most cocktail recipes I like to add a blend of citrus and sweetener. This recipe is no exception. I’m adding in some fresh lemon juice and vanilla syrup. Lemon juice comes in to give that little punch of acidity, ensuring the drink isn’t overwhelmingly sweet. Meanwhile, vanilla syrup adds a hint of subtle aromatic sweetness that complements the fruity tones and adds depth.
Finally, a splash of Amaro Montenegro is like the cherry on top. For those unfamiliar, Amaro Montenegro has a unique profile – a combination of sweet, bitter, and citrusy notes. It’s this complexity that makes the Red Berry Frosé stand out, giving it a multi-layered flavor profile.
I know it may seem like there are a lot of elements that go into the mix for this recipe, but trust when I say: the end product is more than worth it! After all, the recipe is a 2 step process.
Step 1: Add all ingredients with ice into a blender. Blend well.
Step 2: Pour cocktail into glass and garnish with a strawberry and lemon twist.
There you have it! A frozen cocktail that’s perfect to enjoy during these warm summer days or whenever you’re in the mood for a boozy smoothie. As I’m sure you’ve noticed I love mixing up cocktails for every season but I think I’ve got a soft spot for these bright, flavor filled summer drinks! The Red Berry Frosé is a new favorite of mine and I’m sure it’ll be an instant hit for you too.
