Summer will be here before you know it, and while I would not exactly consider myself a warm-weather person, there is one reason I love the season: frozen cocktails!
While popping some ice cubes into your favorite spirit is always refreshing on a hot summer day, there’s something special about mixing it all together in a slushie-like drink that always signals (to me, anyway) that summer is officially underway. And this year, you’ll have two new choices you can buy right at the grocery store from Martini & Rossi: Frosé and Frosecco — aka frozen rose wine and frozen prosecco!
The Frosé and Frosecco pouches are ready-to-drink, so there’s no blender needed. Just freeze, then sip straight from the recyclable pouch or pour them in your favorite cocktail glass. According to Martini & Rossi, the Frosecco pouch is the first-ever packaged frozen prosecco.
The new cocktails have an alcohol by volume (ABV) of 6.5% and are made with Italian wine and all-natural fruit flavors. The come without artificial sweeteners, high fructose corn syrup or artificial coloring. They are available nationwide for $3.99 a pouch.
Don’t forget to recycle the pouch! The company has teamed up with TerraCycle to make responsible disposal of their containers an easy task.
If rosé and prosecco aren’t your favorites, the brand Daily’s makes more than a dozen frozen cocktail flavors, including margarita, mai tai, strawberry daiquiri and more. They also make a frosé if you change your mind and want to try theirs too.
Just like the Martini & Rossi pouches, you simply keep these in the freezer and drink right from the pouch. They all have around 5% ABV.
You can also try making your own at home, as all you’ll need is your favorite spirit, some ice, a blender and whatever other ingredients you use for your favorite cocktail.
If wine is your go-to drink, try mixing your favorite with frozen fruit for a wine slushie. Or, if vodka is your thing instead, check out this watermelon vodka prosecco slushie or this blue vodka lemonade slushie.
