How to Make a Frosé – The Best Summer Cocktail
Frosé (frozen rosé wine) blended with teapigs Super Fruits tea to make a refreshing summer cocktail.
Drinks with friends in the summer sunshine lends itself to pretty coloured drinks so why not make your guests smile as soon as they arrive when you present them with a Frosé. Refreshingly cool and enriched with berry fruits as you chat and catch with your friends up after being apart for way too long.
To induce the summery vibe this frozen rosé, pepped up with a deeply flavoured super fruits syrup adds a sense of fun to any gathering. This syrup also adds a depth of flavour to the wine that may be lost in the freezing.
When the sun is shining and the conversation heads towards non-stop giggles and excited chatter then taking a moment to enjoy this cooling drink will make you long for your party to never end.
The herbal tea I used is from teapigs because when it comes to tea I want quality. I want flavour and I want whole leaf, whole berries, spices or flowers and none of the dusty anonymous stuff you find in lots of other tea bags. This means the blending process is part of the ritual of tea making, which means even before you taste the tea, the smell hits you taking you to another place.
A memory maker of a drink that will be made at every party, every gathering and every event but will always be a drink that makes you smile.
Frosé (Frozen Rosé Wine) with Super Fruits Syrup
1 bottle rosé wine
1 lemon, juiced
75ml sweet vermouth
1 large handful of ice cubes, crushed
½ cup water
2 teapigs Super Fruit teabags
½ cup sugar
225g mixed fruits such as raspberries, strawberries and raspberries
Pour the wine in to ice cube trays if you have enough or into several containers that will allow you to pour a shallow amount of the wine as this will help you transfer into the blender/food processor. Freeze for 4-6 hours or overnight. The wine won’t fully freeze due to the alcohol content.
For the syrup – place water and sugar in a saucepan and allow to heat gently to dissolve the sugar. Add the teabags then fruit and slowly bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes and then remove from the heat and allow to cool. Strain and place in the fridge until needed.
Place your glasses and serving jug in the fridge so they keep as cool as possible.
Remove the wine from the freezer and blitz in a blender or food processor until mushy like a slushie drink. Add the lemon juice, vermouth, crushed ice cubes and finally about 100ml of the syrup (any leftover syrup is delicious in a G&T or a splash in a glass of fizz).
Place the blended cocktail in the jug and you are ready to go.
Note: You can make this all in advance and keep in a container in the freezer until your guests arrive. Again, the alcohol in the wine and the vermouth will ensure it isn’t too frozen but you may need to pep up with more fruit.

Thanks Emmy and the good thing is, you can keep in the freezer until needed! Elinor x
A fantastic summer drinks recipe for our next family BBQ
Oh yes Sarah especially as you can serve everyone at the same time which doesn’t happen when making other cocktails! Elinor x
I’ve never thought to use that before! I’m a big fan of Teapigs. Great idea 🙂
Oh yes teapigs are brilliant. I love their chamomile teabags especially, Elinor x
This sounds amazing! Definitely a nice refreshing sdrink for the summer 🙂
Perfect for parties when you can serve everyone all at the same time which is tricky with other cocktails, Elinor x
Now that is something I’d never thought of combining before! Great recipe !
It’s very additive! We are now on jug number 3! but not all in the same day! Elinor x
I love your posts because they are so quirky. I would never had thought of using tea in this way. I do love Tea Pigs tea as well and have some in the cupboard, so will definitely be giving this a try!
I’ve never heard of frozen rose before (where have I been?!) I must try this recipe before the summer is over 🙂
Ooooh loving the sounds of this I love rose but love the idea of Frose even more!
Oooh this sounds amazing! Rose is my perfect summer drink but this sounds even better! I’d love to try it!
Now is this the best homemade cocktail or what? I really like the idea of adding frozen wine to tea to make a delicious cocktail x
I only just heard of frose for the first time earlier today! What a coincidence to now have a recipe for it 🙂
How funny! My version is softer as it’s made with vermouth and a fruity syrup. I’ve seen other versions with vodka which I think is too harsh but hey, if I was handed one at a party I’d be more than happy! Elinor x
I love cocktails but have never tried using tea as a flavouring, very creative. Love the sound of a frose
Oh now this sounds like something I need in my life! A perfect Summer refreshment 🙂 x
Oh wow! What a brillint idea. I never would have thought about doing this. Xx
It’s the perfect party drink as you don’t have to be a slave to the cocktail bar! Elinor x
These look so good and I’m so craving one now. A perfect refreshment.
This looks delicious, we just need the sun now to make it taste even better
This looks so delicious. I would never think of using tea in it. I like tea pigs too x
Oh wow! This sounds gorgeous, will definitely be giving this a try over the summer 😊
Such a delightfully pretty looking summer drink, I love Tea Pigs infusions and wow you own a Beach Hut , how cool is that?!
I’m loving this! I’ve never tried Tea Pigs – must give them and your recipe a go. Love your photos.
That does sound like a lovely summer cocktail. I like teapigs tea – I agree they are always good quality
Thanks Fiona, yes teapigs teas are always good.
Oh my word Elinor – these look amazing!!
See you in a couple of weeks, bring ingredients – you know you want to x
This looks delicious! I should probably give it a try since it sounds so refreshing with these hot California days we have had.
