Rosé Sorbet

I knew this Rosé Sorbet recipe was going to be good, but I could not have imagined just how good! I mean,  I guess you can’t go that wrong when you’re combining raspberry sorbet with pink bubbles, right? But not only did the combination look beautiful, it tasted even better! This is my perfect type of recipe – no cooking, few ingredients, looks beautiful. The Rosé Sorbet will be great for so many different occasions this summer. I can imagine serving it as a dessert for friends at an al fresco dinner, bridal shower or even a wedding. Find out below the two ingredients and two steps it takes to pull off this oh so pretty pink Rosé Sorbet.

How to Make Frosé

Have you tried making Frosé? It was super trendy last summer with yummy recipes all over Pinterest. Yet, I did not make Frosé until this spring! Most of the Frosé recipes are pretty standard – freeze the rosé overnight and blend with red berries and simple syrup. As most of you know by now I don’t love cooking, so even to freeze rosé and make simple syrup was too much for me! I needed to find an easier way to make and sweeten my Frosé. And that’s how we get my tropical twist on Frosé that requires nothing but adding ingredients to the blender! With my Frosé recipe below there is no excuse not to get into the frozen rosé trend.

Rosé Frosé

Ingredients

Rosé (a sweeter wine like the Jackson-Triggs Rosé works best)

Frozen strawberries

Coconut water

Agave syrup

Instructions

In the blender combine: 2 cups of rosé; 2 cups of frozen strawberries; 1 cup of coconut water; and 2 tablespoons of agave syrup. Blend, pour and enjoy!

With no tequila involved, I’ll be drinking this sparkling margarita all summer long! Read below for instructions on how to make the super simple sparkling margarita.
