Rosé meets strawberries in a crowd-pleasing frozen summer cocktail. Refreshing and easy to make in a blender with just three ingredients! You’ll also find the best way to store strawberries in your refrigerator, keeping them fresh up to a week!
Is is hot where you are? Wowser. . . it’s oppressively hot and humid
with the heat index in the triple digits and heat advisories this week.
How about a Strawberry Frosé to beat the summer heat?
If you’re not familiar with Frosé, it’s frozen rosé, with fruit added.
Think daiquiri, but with rosé instead of rum.
It’s super easy to make using a blender, adding frozen strawberries to rosé and sweetener to taste.
Depending on your variety of rosé and the sweetness of your strawberries, you can
bump up the sweetness as needed by adding simple syrup, agave nectar, honey or sugar.
I had some big fresh local strawberries that I bought to make Strawberry Streusel Bars.
I put the rest of my strawberries in the freezer to enjoy later.
Depending on the size of blender, you may need to make your frosé in two batches.
You’ll want 4 cups of frozen strawberries to 1 bottle of bottle of rosé.
Blend up and sweeten to taste, pretty easy, right?
You can substitute frozen peaches for a delicious variation.
Using frozen strawberries will give you a daiquiri-like consistency
without diluting the flavor like adding ice and fresh berries will.
This will serve 4 – 6 people. You can keep some in the freezer to pull out and enjoy
as the alcohol in the wine will prevent the mixture from freezing hard.
I pulled out a jar of the freezer to enjoy while watching the fireworks Monday night.
I used my limited-edition Ball® Vintage Mason Jars, inspired by the 1920s and ’30s.
They are shown as pink on the Ball Mason Jar website
but are actually a mauve / lavender color in person.
- 1 750-ml. bottle rosé, chilled
- 4 cups frozen strawberries
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar or sweetener of choice adjust sweetener to taste
- Add all ingredients to blender, and blend until fully combined and smooth.
- If frosé is too watery, add more frozen strawberries or ice until you have desired consistency.
- Depending on the size of blender, you may need to make in two batches.
- Add sweeter of choice to taste. Substitute simple syrup, agave nectar, honey or stevia for sugar if desired.
- May substitute frozen peaches for strawberries.
I recently came across a test kitchen tip that I had to share.
The easiest and best way to store strawberries in your fridge. . .
in a mason jar!
Taste of Home tested six different methods to store strawberries and a mason jar was the clear winner.
I tried it myself and have to say my berries looked just as fresh a week later
as they did the day I bought them!
🍓 No air can get into the sealed mason jars, with the natural moisture
in the fruit that keeping berries firm and leaves vibrant.
🍓 Make sure you place your strawberries, unwashed, in a glass mason jar,
stacking them loosely so that they aren’t bruising / smashing each other.
A quart jar will give you more storage room.
🍓 Remove any “iffy” berries before sealing them up in your jar as one moldy
or strawberry going south will cause the rest of the berries to spoil.
🍓 Tightly fasten the metal lid and band on the jar, then put it in the fridge. . .
an ideal method to get more life out of your fresh strawberries!

Your site is so beautiful and I look forward to each one. You are so talented and I would love to be able to share a cup of tea with you. Your floral arrangements are so beautiful and your recipes are so tasty.
Have a beautiful day!
Thanks for that strawberry storage tip. I will have to try that. I had never thought to add strawberries to Rose.
That strawberry frose looks enticing. Thanks for the tip on strawberry storage. I must say, Mary, you have such a flair for the beautiful! Even your simple photo of the rose bottle, the mason jar of straws, and the lovely floral cloth create such a pretty picture. It seems your talent is limitless. Enjoy your drink and stay cool!
Mary…thank you for the opportunity to win the jars…I am anxiously awaiting their arrival. First thing I will use one for is to store some strawberries ( what a great idea) and then flowers from the garden. I just added Rose to my shopping list and plan on making that drink this weekend. Again thanks. Peace.
Lovely, just lovely and so refreshing. Your presentations are so gorgeous. I enjoy the photographs so much.
A lovely drink. I love drinking strawberry daiquiris in the summer. This strawberry frose sounds wonderful. I do store my strawberries in a jar. It works beautifully. Love your pretty floral straws.
Love everything about this post. Thank you.
I discovered the same post on Taste of Home’s facebook page. I’ve found that the plastic lids from mayonnaise jars or peanut butter jars work perfectly as replacement lids for the metal. No rusty lids to discard.
Your drink looks so cool and refreshing! I’m so surprised to learn about the mason jar trick for storing strawberries – I never would have guessed that to be the best way! Your posts are always so beautiful and inspiring – thank you. I’ve seen plenty of cute paper straws before but none as pretty as the ones you featured. Where did you find them?
Hi Sue, I found the floral straws at HomeGoods but there are some similar pretty floral straws on Amazon, HERE.
Mary, this is so refreshing! Makes me want to go buy strawberries!!! It is blazing hot here, and no relief in sight! The rose Ball jars are gorgeous! Pretty straws too! I enjoy the lavender ones you sent me several years ago.
Mary, we’re under a severe heat advisory and it’s absolutely miserable outside. I’m happy to know that mason jars will extend the life of my strawberries! Thanks for the info. Stay cool. Clara❤️
The strawberry frose sounds perfect for cooling off in our Texas heat, Mary. I read about the same way of keeping strawberries fresh. I’ve been meaning to try it. I have used a Rubbermaid produce keeper for years, and it has worked out well.
WOW! This is a “I HAVE TO TRY”! CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNERS OFTHE PINK JARS! Enjoy!!
Mary, the strawberry frose looks perfect for this hot weather. Thanks for the tip for storing strawberries. Stay in and stay cool!
Just bought some strawberries so I will try this awesome tip! Thank you Mary! Love using my quart canning jars, especially with both my canning helpers in heaven ( mom and hubby) I only did 15 quarts of tomatoes last year and still have 8 left. I still enjoy the beautiful blue jars I won from you several years ago. They are well used and bring a smile each time I use them. ♥️ (Those are very pretty straws! )
Such a beautiful drink Mary! The strawberry tip is amazing, I can’t wait to try that, thank you!
Such a fun idea, I’m always so hyper that one sip of a cocktail rips the rug right out from under me, so I rarely relax to the max!
