This Strawberry Frozen Rosé is the perfect summertime drink! This simple recipe makes two servings but it could easily be multiplied for a crowd.
It has been oppressively hot in Texas lately. (Shocking news, I know.) Thankfully it waited until we got back from our family trip to San Marcus (and quick detour to Magnolia Market) before things really started to heat up. The fall countdown has begun, but in the meantime I will be over here chilling in the air conditioning with this Strawberry Frozen Rosé… the new unofficial drink of summer.
Llano Estacado Winery, located in Lubbock, Texas, reached out to me to partner on this post, and I was all “Yes, please! #allthewines”. (Because let’s be real, the back-to-school countdown has been on for WEEKS.) Llano wines are the perfect way to create refreshing cocktails and delicious dishes this summer. Llano wines are wonderful on their own as well as used in or paired with many different foods.
Llano Estacado is the largest, best selling Premium Winery in Texas and has been an ongoing pioneer in introducing not just Texans, but also the entire world to the great wines made in the Lone Star State. The winery produces approximately 50 variertals of wine, available for purchase statewide at your local retailer, or online at www.llanowine.com.
I am a big fan of their Signature White and Cellar Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. Llano Wine sent me two new wines to sample, both perfect for summer:
The Llano Estacado Red Moscato is a festive wine with ripe red apple and strawberry aromas and is perfect for those who enjoy a sweet-styled light red wine. It is great on its own, or when served with brunch or dessert, and also pairs well with spicy foods. This slightly effervescent wine has a balanced sweetness and refreshing smooth finish.
The Signature Rosé is a Texas Rhone Style Rosé composed of classic Southern Rhône
varieties. It was blended early and fermented cold in stainless steel to preserve its delicate aromatics. This wine is an expression of what classic rosé should be: fruity, aromatic, food friendly or enjoyable on its own on a hot, Texas summer afternoon.
This Strawberry Frozen Rosé, or Frosé, as it is affectionately known, is part frozen fruit, part rosé, and all parts delicious. It’s basically an adult slushie and it is exactly what you need on a hot summer night!
