Step-By-Step Direction for Making The Perfect Frosé
Ready to make your chilling drinks? Just follow the steps and you’ll get the best results! However, you’ll need a little more practice to make the perfect glass of Frosé. So let us start making our favorite summer pink drink-
Step 1: Freeze The Rosé
This is the first preparatory step of making a Frosé. In this step, you need to pour 1 bottle of rosé into a glass jar. Any container with a proper lid would do.
Rosé doesn’t quite freeze easily due to the presence of alcohol. That’s why you need to chill this drink for a duration of 6 hours. This will freeze the rosé just enough for making a perfect blend.
Step 2: Make The Sugar And Strawberry Syrup
In the meantime, it’s better you start making the strawberry syrup. So, for that, you need a saucepan. Put ½ cup of sugar in the heated pan. After that, add ½ cup water and let it boil. Stir the mixture for about 3 minutes until the sugar dissolves completely.
Once the sugar is dissolved, add the quartered strawberries to the simmering solution. Once they are added, remove the saucepan from the heat and let it cool for 30 mins. These 30 minutes will help the syrup to infuse the strawberry flavor.
After the 30 minutes are over, take a fine-mesh sieve to strain the syrup. Strain it onto a bowl or jar with a firm lid. No need to press the solids while doing so. Cover the jar with a lid and let it chill until cold for 30 minutes.
Step 3: Blend Frozen Rosé And Syrup
If the syrup is ready. And the rosé has been chilled for 6 hours properly, it’s time to blend. Scrape the frozen rosé into the blender. Along with that, add 2 ½ ounces of lemon juice made with fresh lemon. After that, add 3 ½ ounces of the strawberry syrup and 1 cup of crushed ice. Blend the mixture until smooth. It wouldn’t take more than 2-3 minutes.
Once the Frosé achieves milkshake consistency, put it in the freezer for another 25-35 minutes. This brings us to the final step.
Step 4: Serve The Summer Relief
Now that Frosé is chilled, blend the mixture one last time. This will make the mixture slushy bringing your preparation to an end. This means your Frosé is ready to be served.
How Long Can You Store a Frosé?
If you’re wondering about storing Frosé, we’ve got you covered. You can store the syrup and the rosé for up to 7 days. As long as they are sealed tightly with a lid. Wine and strawberries lose their flavor gradually when they are stored in a freezer.
Which Temperature is The Best for Serving Frosé?
Answer: It’s best to serve this beautiful drink at 50 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s why it’s better to make this drink beforehand and refrigerate 30 mins before serving.
Can I Substitute Strawberries in Frosé?
Answer: It’s completely okay if you’re not a fan of fresh strawberries. If you’re a fan of the flavor, you can substitute it with strawberry syrup. If you’re not a fan at all, you can substitute with any other fruits. Such as raspberries and blackberries.
Now that you’ve found out the formula to the perfect Frosé, it’s time to take a sip! Enjoy this tart yet sweet drink over the summer.
