These easy frozen Rosé cubes (also known as Frosé) are a complete game changer! They’re the perfect, real simple solution for always having a cold drink by the pool. You can make them in big batches for a party, or to simply always have on hand when you’re in the mood for an ice cold glass of Prosecco (or any wine, really!).
They’re also good for munching on with a spoon! They’re so good! Because of the alcohol in the Rosé, they don’t freeze rock hard like water does– they have more of a popsicle-like consistency.
I got this idea on a night out at Top Golf. If you’ve never been, it’s similar to bowling in that you get your own bay (and there are several levels) to hit golf balls into a variety of targets with your friends, all while drinking a cocktail and eating a meal. My entire family loves it! We are hooked. Anyway, they have a drink very similar to this, and I knew after my first sip that I would soon be experimenting with it at home. 🙂
I use this large silicone ice cube tray (it comes in a 2 pack). The cubes fit perfectly into the rim of a wine glass and stay frozen longer than a traditional sized ice cube, and because of the tray’s flexibility, the wine cubes are easy to get out in one solid piece. However, feel free to use a traditional ice tray if that’s all you have.
- 2 bottles Prosecco
- 1 bottle non-sparkling Rosé
- 8-10 small strawberries (fresh or frozen)
- A large handful of raspberries (fresh or frozen)
- Fill your ice cube tray with a few pieces of fruit in each slot. My silicone tray has 8 large slots, and I put 2-3 pieces of fruit in each.
- Next, fill with Rosé until it’s close to the rim (it only expands a little when freezing). Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 6 hours over night. You will likely not use the entire bottle of Rosé, so enjoy the glass that is left!
- Once frozen, the berry Rosé cubes are super easy to take out one by one if desired! Simply place the tray upside down on a plate or cutting board and gently push on and manipulate the bottom of each slot.
- Place each cube in a wine glass and top with 4-6 ounces of Prosecco. Drink up! The flavor of the drink will slowly change as you get to the end of the glass. It’s so tasty!
- If you’re not familiar with Rosé, there are a wide range of sweetness levels, so be sure to ask for a good recommendation at the store. A lot of people falsely assume that because it’s pink, it’s sweet, but that’s not true! I prefer a good European (specifically French) Rosé because they are usually dry and crisp.
- If for some strange reason you’re not a Prosecco fan, you can replace it with your own favorite bubbly (Champagne, Moscato, etc.).
- Because of the alcohol in the Rosé, the cubes don’t freeze rock hard. In fact, they’re perfect for munching on even without a drink!
These luscious Rosé cubes will keep your drink super cold for much longer without watering it down! It’s the perfect summer drink by the pool.
