This watermelon mojito frosé [rosé slushy] is a refreshing summer drink that is perfect to enjoy on a hot sunny day! Fresh watermelon and frozen rosé ice cubes and all blended together with mint and lime. Non-alcoholic version of the recipe included below!
Let’s kick off this beautiful sunny weekend with a refreshing and frosty cocktail!
This is actually the very first cocktail recipe I’m sharing on the blog. I’m actually not even sure if I’d consider it a cocktail since there is only a bit of wine in this drink…but either way, it’s DELISH.
I love enjoying a glass of wine on the weekend to wind down and relax. But lately, on these hot summer days, I’ve been feeling like something a little colder and refreshing. Some days I like to relax with a glass of refreshing cold brew peach iced tea, but other days, I want something a little more frosty!
We’ve been having a serious hot streak this July, which if you ask me has been AMAZING. (Especially since the last couple of summers weren’t so warm.) Summer is my favourite season of the year and I live for hot weather! (Seriously I wonder sometimes if I was meant to live on a tropical island.) So I’ve been especially excited about this recipe that is seriously perfect for a hot and sunny day.
If you’re sitting there wondering what on earth is a frosé? Let me explain. Simply put a frosé is just frozen rosé wine. As in let’s take some rosé wine and make it a million times better by freezing it into ice cubes and them blending it up into a refreshing SLUSHY!
This frosé also takes it up a notch by adding in fresh watermelon, mint, and lime. Which is one of my favourite combinations.
This watermelon mojito frosé is a great healthy alternative to having a drink loaded with sugar, hard liquor and artificial ingredients. In fact, you should probably have two glasses of this recipe to yourself, since it’s been shown that wine has a ton of health benefits.
A few notes on this recipe:
Remember to prepare the frozen rosé for this recipe the night before you want to make it so the rosé cubes have a chance to freeze. You can also alternatively freeze your watermelon instead and add the rosé wine in liquid form.
Even though this recipe calls for rosé wine, if you prefer white or red wine (or if that’s what you have on hand) you can definitely use that instead. It will taste just as delicious! You can also use any type of juice you like in place of the wine completely to make this recipe non-alcoholic.
Watermelon is one of my favourite refreshing ingredients to use during the summertime that is hydrating and filled with electrolytes, but you prefer any other types of fruit to make this slushy then go right ahead! Maybe a mango frosé or a strawberry frosé? Yum!
