July’s Cocktail: Strawberry Frosé Cocktail

MWS cocktail banners_june

Summer is officially HERE and we’re still crazy about using rose in our cocktails so we’re sharing another great cocktail featuring, you guessed it, rosé.

We found some great frosé recipes online and it inspired us to make our very own vodka strawberry frosé. (Check out some of our favorite rosés you can use – Yum!)

Make Our Strawberry Frosé Cocktail

Ingredients:

  • Bottle of COLD Rosé: First, choose the rosé of your choice. At Mystic Wine Shoppe, we carry a wide variety… We chose the Ruby Red rosé for this recipe, which is blended with 80% Cotes du Provence Rose and ruby red grapefruit juice – It’s delicious and refreshing.
    • If you want it more frothy – check out our June recipe… freezing the rosé in ice cube trays ahead of time will make it more slush-like.
  • Vodka (we used Tito’s)
  • 5-8 fresh strawberries
  • Splash of lemon juice
  • 1 Teaspoon of melted sugar
  • Small ice cubes

Mix it up:

  • To make two glasses of frosé: Mix together ice (be generous with the ice), strawberries (remove stem), 1 shot of vodka, sugar and half the bottle of cold rosé
  • Blend it up, pour and enjoy!

June’s Cocktail: Frosé

mws.frose_frose

Last summer rosé and frosé (frozen rosé) was all the rage and we think it will only become more popular this summer. With new rosés coming out left and right, the options for tasting and creating cocktails is endless. This month we’re sharing a super simple recipe to make your own frosé at home.

Check it out –

MWS Frose (12 of 15)

Mystic Wine Shoppe Frosé Ingredients:

  • Bottle of rosé – we found the darker colored rosé worked well to hold its color
  • Juice of a lemon
  • Handful of rasperries
  • 1/2 cup sugar

IMG_9329 MWS Frose (1 of 15)

Prep:

  • Freeze your rosé for at least 6 hours – we used ice cube trays
  • Place sugar into a small saucepan and add half a cup of water. Heat and stir constantly until sugar dissolves. Add crushed  raspberries to the sugar/water mixture. Let it all sit for a couple of minutes in the freezer. Strain out the liquid and place to the side.

MWS Frose (3 of 15)

Directions:

  • Mix together frozen rosé cubes, handful of ice, raspberry liquid and lemon juice
  • Blend to perfection and serve!

Host a Mother’s Day Brunch with POP!

We think Pommery Pop Rose Champagne would make a killer addition to your Mother’s Day brunch… So, this month’s cocktail is more of a ‘make-your-own’ cocktail bar. Check it out and get some inspiration for your Mother’s Day gifts and celebrations.

MWS Spring Cocktail_0147 MWS_ web Res_ cocktails (22 of 44)

What you need:

  • Setting up a Pommery Pop Champagne Bar is really one of the easiest options you can offer your guests. Not only do you not have to make the drink, but guests can customize their drink the way they want it.
  • We purchased fresh juices (OJ and apple juice) and fresh fruit (strawberries and blackberries) to create a nice display for our guests to choose from. You can use whatever juice or fruit you would like at your bar!
  • Thinking about feeding your guests? We recommend some delicious baked french toast and/or quiche to go with the champagne bar.
