WHAT IS FROSE´?
In general, Frosé is made with rosé wine and fruits such as strawberry and watermelon. Ordinarily, it's a traditional summer libation, created by a bartender in New York in 2016. Typically, the drink is sweet with hints of wine flavor throughout and is easy to recreate at home!
MY FAVORITE ROSÉ
I get to partner with amazing brands and have to share about Le Grand Courtâge owned and operated by women! With that said, their Très Chic Rosé, if by far one of my favorite rosé's to drink. Hints of rose petals, grapefruit, red berries and tropical fruit, are the tasting notes for this wine.
Le Grand Courtâge partners with several non-profits and donates 10% of their online and event sales to their NPO partners! Turning a favorite past time (indulgence) for most into a worthy cause!
WHAT PAIRS WELL WITH FROSÉ
I prefer this rosé chilled and paired with a charcuterie board, filled with salty meats, soft cheeses and fresh fruit. I enjoy this Watermelon Cherry Frosé outside during a picnic or visit to the beach, in like fashion!
HOW TO MAKE FROSE´
First, start by roughly chopping watermelon and removing the stems from the cherries. Next, place fruits into a freezer safe bag or container and freeze.
Second, pour rosé into ice cube trays and freeze at minimum for two hours.
Next, prep your additional ingredients by juicing a half of a large lime and reserving some of the cherry juice. In a blender add frozen rosé, watermelon and cherries. Add fresh lime and cherry juice and blend until smooth.
