Do you know what an Elderflower is?!? I really don’t, but I do know they taste delicious. And they sound pretentious. I’m that girl that order any fancy drink that has Elderflower in it at bars and I always get the side eye. Even from my close friends!! But that’s okay, I don’t mind. Elderflower is so tasty in alcoholic drinks, it really blends well and is quite refreshing. In case you’re wondering, my love affair with Elderflower, started when I discovered St. Germain liquor(almost 10 years ago I just realized!!) and I haven’t looked back since. So when I spotted these pretty Elderflower and Rose lemonades at Aldi and I had a bottle of Rosé I needed to use up, a genius idea evolved. Elderflower Frosé!
If you’re not familiar with Frosé, it’s basically a wine slushee. Except classier. And the word “slushee” just sounds meh in my opinion and not fancy like Rosé. So Frosé, it is. Wine slushess are surprisingly easy to make, and sometimes they need a little something extra to add to the flavor.
This has been my favorite Rosé lately (And the trendy name helps!), but free to use your favorite! This particular Rosé that I used it a bit dry and that actually goes quite well with the sweetness of the elderflower and rose.
- 1/2 bottle of Rosé (You might actually need less)
- 1 bottle Elderflower lemonade/syrup (Available at Aldi)
- Pour the Rosé in ice cube trays and freeze for at least 4 hours (best to do it overnight)
- Once ice cubes have set, take about 6-8 ice cubes and put in a blender on medium speed.
- Add about 1/8 cup of Elderflower lemonade to the mix and continue blending for about 30 seconds.
- Check consistency, it needs to be more liquid than crushed ice, but not too liquidy.
- If needed, add a tiny bit more elderflower lemonade.
- Be cautious with adding the lemonade; it's quite easy to add too much.
- Pour in a glass and enjoy! Easiest to drink with a straw.
