Make mine a slushy, please! (A Rosé slushy, that is.)

With temps on the rise, we're dreaming about refreshing cocktails to get us through the dog days of summer. While rosé has quite a colorful history (dating back to the 6th century BC), this pink French wine has been a favorite summer “go-to” drink since the early 2000s. And now it’s gotten an upgrade: frosé (frozen rosé wine) seems to be the next big thing for hot summer days.

Well, we'd like to take it a step further.

A frozen rosé cocktail that is sure to be your new favorite summer drink, Sommelier Bob Smith from The Boundary Bottle shop shares his recipe for Watermelon Frosé.


1/2 bottle (750 ml or approx. 13 oz) good Rosé
3 oz vodka*
6 oz fresh watermelon juice
1.5 oz lemon juice
2 oz simple syrup


1. Add all ingredients and ice and blend. You may need to split the recipe in half depending on the size of your blender.
2. Pour into glasses.
3. Garnish with a mint leaf and wedge of watermelon.
4. Enjoy!

Makes roughly 30 oz. or 5, 6-oz. servings.

*To make it a bit more interesting, you can substitute Banks 5 Island Rum for the vodka.

A sweet and tart drink perfect for any day of the week, step up your summer cocktail game (and stay deliciously cool) with this refreshing pink drink.
