Is there anything more summery than biting into a juicy chunk of watermelon on a hot day? I don’t think so!
That’s why I love this watermelon frosé recipe so much – its got everything you love about the feeling of summertime in every boozy sip! The taste of sweet, fresh watermelon blends beautifully with the rosé, lime juice, and honey. It’s a delicious summer cocktail that’s got all natural sweeteners to keep you cool.
Frozen drinks are one of my favorite treats, probably ever.
I think it probably all started when I was a kid and would beg my parents for gas station slushies, milkshakes, and all junk! Now, as an adult my tastes are just a tiny bit (but not entirely) more sophisticated.
I’ve traded in my love for syrupy gas station slushies for drinks like this naturally flavored watermelon frosé!
This blended wine cocktail is SO much fun to serve at pool parties, beach houses, and girls nights.
Honestly, they’re so pink and pretty, they make me feel like Barbie when I’m enjoying one! I know I just said I was a sophisticated adult, but still. Even “grown-ups” need a fun little drink to feel like Barbie sometimes, right?
Especially when that drink is a watermelon frosé, of course!
Ingredients to make watermelon frosé:
- Watermelon – Use seedless watermelon that has been cut into cubes. Trust me, you don’t want to spend forever picking out seeds, so just buy a seedless watermelon to save time.
- Rosé wine – Your cocktail will only ever be as good as the alcohol you use in it, so make sure to use a good quality rosé.
- Lime – You’ll need the juice of one lime to help create a natural hint of tang in this sweet drink.
- Honey – This serves as a natural sweetener. You can also use organic agave! However, if you don’t want any added sweetness, you can omit it entirely.
- Garnishes – Fresh mint sprigs, watermelon slices, or edible flowers are all cute choices.
Can more alcohol be added to this watermelon frosé recipe?
Sure thing! While I find that the bottle of wine in the mix is boozy enough for me, you can certainly step things up with an oz of vodka or rum.
Can watermelon frosé be made ahead?
Sadly, this is definitely a serve it as soon as you make it kind of drink! The frosé doesn’t hold up well in the refrigerator or freezer.
Keep that blender plugged in!
- ½ of a small seedless watermelon cut into small cubes, approximately 4 cups
- 1 bottle rosé wine
- Juice of 1 lime
- 2-3 tablespoons honey, depending on how sweet you want the cocktail
- For garnish: fresh mint, watermelon slices, or edible flowers
- Pour the wine into ice cube trays and freeze, preferably overnight (they will still be a little bit slushy). Reserve ½ a cup of wine for the blending mix.
- Place the watermelon cubes in the freezer overnight as well.
- Place watermelon cubes, honey, lime juice, wine cubes, and the remaining ½ a cup of wine into a blender. Blend until smooth.
- Transfer to a glass and serve immediately. If you made it quite thick and slushy, you can use an ice cream spoon to serve it.
- Garnish with lime, watermelon slices, or mint.
- Serve immediately.
