Having a few refreshing, easy to make drinks up your sleeve is a must-have as summer approaches. For those really hot days, this watermelon frosé (that’s frozen rosé to you!) is a foolproof favorite of mine.
Most frosé recipes use strawberries to add fruity flavor to the wine, but I prefer watermelon because it turns easily to a smooth texture in the blender and you can drink the frosé right out of the watermelon! I mean, come on.
The hands on time for this recipe is minimal, but it does take a while for the wine to freeze. So get it going the night before you plan to drink it, or in the morning if you have guests coming for dinner. This one’s a crowd pleaser!
1 bottle Rosé
1 personal size watermelon
1-2 Tbsp sugar
ice cube trays or baking sheets
absorbent kitchen towels or paper towels
Pour the rosé into ice cube trays or a baking sheet. Freeze at least 6-8 hours. The rosé won’t freeze completely but should be slushy without excess liquid.
Cut off the top of the watermelon and scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Lay the watermelon on a towel to drain some of the juice out.
Place the frozen rosé and watermelon in a blender and blend until combined. Add the sugar a little at a time if desired—I added 1 tablespoon for a bit of extra sweetness. Serve immediately or, for a slushier frosé, freeze for an additional 1-2 hours, and then blend very briefly.
This frosé was so fruity and refreshing! Compared to a lot of drinks out there, frosé is a breeze to whip up—I love that it only has three ingredients. Watermelon frosé will officially be on repeat at my house this summer.

I wish I wasn’t at work right now! Or that it wasn’t pouring with rain in the UK atm… 🙂
That’s a cool combination, I have to try it!
I can see clearly in my mind how these flavors would pair perfectly. 🙂 When I move back to the US in August and no longer live where it costs $18 for a smallish watermelon, I am immediately making this!
I really need to go to the market and grab some beautiful melons to try it out next weekend. Hope the weather will be fine 🙂
I love both rosé and watermelon, so I definitely want to try this recipe! Thanks for sharing 🙂
I have a idea. Why don’t you make a mountain clutch purse or a make a rectangular clutch/makeup bag that’s made out of white felt or whatever and says something like this
” woke up like this” made from felting wool, similar like this to get you a idea ,
I’ve tried to make those watermelon baskets before and it did not go so well! This looks much simpler…and delicious!
This is the perfect idea! I could see it selling SO well with my family, we all love watermelon!
