Frosè

Nothing says Valentine’s Day more than a pink drink! This Frosè is sweet, looks great, and is sure to make your heart skip a beat, just like your Valentine!

So, I don’t know about you but I think that all things should be pink for the entire month of February. Now, if you're not interested in going all in like I am you can always start with a fun pink drink to break the ice. It’s the one time of the year that you can get away with serving just about anyone a “girly” drink.

So for me, Frosè really only came into my world a couple of summers ago when it seemed to pop up in just about every restaurant I went to. While it is great for Valentine's day it is also a really good patio drink, slushy wine with some extra sweetness from the St Germaine, you really can’t go wrong.

Now, when it comes to Rose I will admit that I am rather picky and really only like to drink it if it comes from France. One of my personal favourites is La Vieille Ferme not only because the price point is super reasonable but also because it’s a really good bottle of wine.

Now if you prefer a sweeter Rose you can certainly go ahead and use that, I would just recommend that you add your simple syrup and St Germaine in stages and taste as you go so that you don’t end up with a super sweet drink, that is unless that is what your going for and in that case, don’t let me stop you!

servings 4

Ingredients

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup water

2 oz St Germaine (Elderflower liqueur)

1 bottle Rosè

Instructions

In a small saucepan combine sugar and water and bring to a boil stirring constantly so that the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

In a freezer safe baking dish combine cooled simple syrup, St Germaine and 1/2 a bottle of Rosè. Place inside freezer for a minimum of 4 hours. After your first 2 hours stir every 30 minutes so that your mixture remains slushy and does freeze fully.

To serve separate into 4 glasses then top with remaining Rosè.
