Rosé is the perfect summer tipple – cool, refreshing and reliable - but if you haven’t tried frozen rosé, aka frosé, you’re missing out. Essentially rosé in slushie form, frosé has recently got a 2017 summer makeover, and looks prettier than ever.
Pinterest is the hub of Instagrammable summer drinks and recipes, and over the past couple of months the search around DIY frosé recipes has gone into overdrive; there has been a 70 percent rise of people pinning frosé recipes since May, and the variations on the nation's favourite beverage will no doubt inspire you, too.
We have rounded up the prettiest (and tastiest) frosé recipes on Pinterest, garnished and adorned with lavender, rose petals, strawberries and more, to make them suitable for any Instagram feed. Happy sippin'!
Elderflower Rosé Slushie

The Lemony Frosé
Pour the rosé into a ziplock bag and place in the freezer. Place strawberries and sugar in a heatproof bowl, cover with cling film and place over a pan of simmering water for 1 hour. Sieve out the strawberry juices and then blend with the frozen wine. Garnish with a twist of lemon. (Courtesy of Great British Chefs.)
The Classic Frosé
For the perfect frosé, choose a full-bodied rosé and freeze it for at least 6 hours. In the meantime, bring 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 water to boil until the sugar dissolves. Add strawberries and remove from the heat, letting the strawberry juice infuse the sugar to make a syrup. Strain the syrup through a sieve and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. Add lemon juice and blend all together with the frozen rosé until smooth. (Courtesy of Bon A Appétit.)
