Watermelon Frosé is a flavorful twist on the trendy Frosé cocktail. Juicy fresh watermelon and tangy lime add a summer time flavor to our frozen rose recipe.
Watermelon Frosé Recipe
When the weather is hot and steamy and watermelons are sweet and juicy, the only sensible thing to make is a frozen watermelon rosé wine cocktail. I’m sure you agree!
We all love a refreshing Frosé so why not make it even better and more flavorful with sweet watermelon and a hint of tangy fresh lime juice? Frozen watermelon and frozen wine whirl up in the blender with additional wine that been sweetened with superfine sugar and fresh lime juice transforming into a delightful watermelon slushy cocktail.
There’s a bright side to making our Frosé. No need to go through all the trouble of making a simple syrup, like many other recipes do, for our watermelon frost drink. We use superfine sugar that dissolves easily and combines overnight in the fridge with some of the rosé wine and lime juice. Easy peasy!
For a deep red color, be sure to use a rose that is a dark pink and also add two or three drops of red food coloring. I added the food coloring (very little!) to enhance the color but you can keep your frozen slushy a lighter color and just leave out the food coloring.
Summertime just got a lot more flavorful and fun. Your watermelon rosé slushy will be the hit of this week’s Happy Hour! Cheers!
What can I make with overripe watermelon?
Overripe watermelon tends to be very sweet and will work well as a base for blender cocktails, such as our Watermelon Frosé, Margaritas and any cocktails you want to flavor with watermelon. Blended ripe watermelon will make a refreshing drink when you add seltzer or sparkling water to it. You can also combine ripe watermelon when blending your smoothie.

How do you make watermelon taste better?
To enhance the flavor and sweetness of your watermelon, sprinkle a tiny bit of salt, not sugar, on the watermelon. Salt makes flavors pop and will bring out the flavor of the watermelon!
