As I usually do in these cases, I got home and promptly tried out my own version of the frozen drink with raspberries and a touch of honey.
The result--these Raspberry Rosé Wine Slushies--was a hit and became one of my favorite recipes that year.
Then a couple months ago, I suddenly started seeing everyone talking about something called "Frosé."
That same slushy idea, but with a much cooler name.
I'm kicking myself for not having come up with that, but will happily ride along on this trendy wave if it means I get to slurp down chilly glasses of boozy slush.
Serve up this slushy in short glasses straight out of the blender. They don't last long in the summer heat, but no worries... The perfect excuse to make a second batch!
