  • 1/2 cup sugar1/2 cup water
  • 1 750 ml Rose wine
  • 6 cups watermelon cubed and frozen

Simple Syrup:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water


Prepping the watermelon:

  • Cut the rind off the watermelon then dice into about 1 1/2″ cubes.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper then place the cubes on it in a single layer. Freeze about 4 hours or until the cubes are solid then transfer to a zip top bag or other container.

The simple syrup:

  • Whisk the sugar and water together in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer stirring occasionally until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and cool to room temp

Making the frose:

  • Add about half the frozen cubes to a blender then pour in about half of the wine and blend until smooth.
  • Continue adding the rest of the watermelon and wine blending until you reach the consistency you prefer.
  • Taste and if you prefer a sweeter cocktail, add 1-2 tablespoons of simple syrup at a time blending and tasting as you go until it's as sweet as you like.
  • Pour into glasses and serve right away.
