Frosé — a.k.a. frozen rosé — is undoubtedly the trendiest beverage out there this summer. Countless variations on the drink have been popping up all over the internet, and after testing out a bunch, we’ve finally found our fave.
Using watermelon instead of the more common strawberries gives it an ultra-refreshing taste and beautiful red color, and unlike strawberries you don’t have to strain them.
This recipe only takes 5 minutes, but if you really want to take it to next level slushiness, freeze the watermelon cubes before blending. And if you really want to give it a kick, feel free to add some vodka in there for good measure.
Watch the video above to see how to make it, then follow the recipe below.
