From Fruit to Frozen Cocktail

We’re almost positive that most of you are familiar with the ever popular wine, rosé. But, do you know how it’s made?


Wine gets its color from the skin of grapes rather than from its juice - in fact, all grapes produce clear juice.


Rosé is created by letting the juice from red grapes soak with the skins for a much shorter time than red wine. Usually, the skins are only soaked with the juice for 2-3 days until the desired pink color is visible.


From there, the fermenting process begins and the delicious rosé we’ve all come to know and love is created.


Now that you’re familiar with that process, are you ready to learn how rosé becomes frosé? Frosé is the frozen version of rosé that you’ve probably seen popping up all over social media. Read the recipe below to find out how to make your own!
