Frose! (Frozen Rose) And Other Cooling Slushie Ideas

Slushie Strip 4

Have you heard of the new trend that’s shaking New York to the core? Frosé! The rosé wine based fruity, slushy cocktail which makes you a total hipster once you begin to sip on it.

Guess what? We made it! We couldn’t resist because it sounded delicious. While most recipes use strawberries as the fruity base, we decided to put a SORTED twist on it and make it with watermelon instead. We’ve got a thing about watermelons at the moment.

Whilst in our recipe, we made use of a slush machine, there’s a simple trick you can do with a freezer to achieve a similar goal. Make up the mixture in a shallow dish and pop it in the freezer. Check it every 20 minutes or so and use a fork to break up the frozen mixture. You can get very close to the slushy effect by using this simple trick. The drink itself is so refreshing and delicious you won’t know the difference anyway!

You can get the recipe here. Enjoy. 

Oh and here are some more great ideas that we played about with. We went a bit nuts with the slushy machine. It’s a new toy after all….

CAIPIRINHAS

Of course, we could have made any cocktail under the sun but with it being the Olympics we thought Hey! Let’s celebrate Brazil. Fruity, sharp, citrus cocktails are best because they were made to go with ice.

FROZEN COFFEE

Are you bored of heading to your local overpriced coffee chain to fork out on iced beverages? No more! Make your own coffee at home. Apply the same principle of checking your DIY slush mix in the freezer and you’ll be mega pleased with yourself.

APPLE & MANGO SLUSHIES

Head for a slightly healthier slush puppy by combining your favourite fruit juices. When we ran a recent poll on Twitter everyone agreed that the blue one was their favourite. Can you achieve the same flavours? Probably not if you want to keep your teeth into old age.

We hope you enjoy your refreshing, delicious Frosé. For more delicious cocktail and summer drink recipes head to SORTEDfood.com or check out the great articles below.
