It’s fun serving frozen drinks, and I’ve got more to share with you. Try my Frozen Pina Colada Cocktails, some Strawberry Lemonade Frozen Margaritas, and this Pink Lemonade Vodka Slush! If you’re interested in a non-alcoholic drink, make these Strawberry Daiquiri Mocktails!

Frozen Drinks

Frozen drinks and warm summer nights just go together. Here in Texas, it can easily be 90 degrees and above in the evenings, and so cool drinks are usually on the menu. If you prefer something virgin, try my Orange Julius Smoothies, my Cherry Smoothies, or my favorite Berry Peanut Butter Smoothies!

Let’s talk about this pretty cocktail. Rosè is a wine that we enjoy on its own, but adding the watermelon and lime simple syrup definitely takes it to a new level. These cocktails are refreshing, slightly sweetened, and boozy. All good things for coping with HOT summers. 😀

Ingredients needed for Watermelon Frosè:

  • Rosè wine – Use whatever you like to drink.
  • Watermelon – Cubed and frozen.
  • Lime Simple Syrup – Adds some sweetener and some zesty lime flavor. So good!
  • Watermelon Wedges – To serve.

How to make the best Watermelon Frosè:

  1. {IN ADVANCE} Prep the watermelon. Prepare the day before, or at least 3-4 hours before your event, by cubing and freezing the watermelon. You will need about 7-8 cups of cubes for a full recipe, but use only enough for the right consistency.
  2. {IN ADVANCE} Chill the wine. I often place it in the freezer for an hour or so before I make these.
  3. {IN ADVANCE} Make the simple syrup. Using a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water and bring to a simmer. When the sugar is dissolved completely, remove from heat. Add the zest and lime juice and let cool. Strain the zest from the liquid, and then store in the refrigerator to get it cold before using.
  4. {Party Time} Make cocktails. Combine half of the wine, about 1/4 cup of the simple syrup, and a few frozen watermelon cubes in a blender. Pulse until smooth, and add watermelon until you get the right consistency.. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  5. Serve. To serve, pour cocktails into glasses, and garnish with watermelon wedges. ENJOY!

I always recommend having munchies available while sipping cocktails. Variety is nice too – especially for groups of people.

      Thank you Karl! I hope you get a chance to try it!

  3. I love it when I can have a drink and a dessert at the same time! Guests also dig it because of the “cool” factor and it is a drink they normally don’t have. Your party will be a hit!
