Rhubarb Mint Frosé


Frosé has been the most popular girl on the block here in NYC for the past two summers. I finally caved and ordered a glass of this frozen slushy rosé a few weeks ago. Why did I wait so long?



I immediately started thinking of flavor combinations to make my own at home. Lavender and rhubarb went into the ring and rhubarb came out victorious. 



I added some fresh mint to the mix to accentuate the cool for these very hot days we are having. Rhubarb is sour and tangy, so I made a sugar rhubarb syrup mint syrup first to balance out the dry rose and the rhubarb flavor. Once the syrup has cooled, strain, add a bottle of rosé freeze in ice cube trays, blend and serve. 



The best part about this recipe is you have the option of blending the entire batch at once or you can just take 6 cubes out of the freezer at a time and make yourself an individual cocktail whenever you want a refreshing. the recipe is easily doubled or tripled to create a larger batch of Frosé.



Don't wait any longer to get your Frosé on. It's refreshing and the perfect adult slushy.
