(soft pop music) Hey there, I'm London Brazilfrom EvolvingTable.
com where you learn how tomake nourishing meals and drinks to serve the ones you love.
And today I'm going to be teaching you how to make this easy Watermelon Frose.
Even though summer has barely begun, I am already so obsessed withmaking every single possible frozen drink under the sun.
What first started off with this easy three-ingredient frozen lemonade has quickly evolved toinclude a few more boozy and adult options likethis Watermelon Frose.
“What exactly is Frose? You say.
It's a blended cocktail made from frozen fruit and Rose Wine.
In a classic frozen recipe, you'll typically usestrawberries as the fruit.
But y'all, this recipeis anything but basic because we're usingjuicy watermelon chunks and a little bit of mintto take it over the top.
So if you're ready to get to Rose making, then come on in and let's get started.
As I'm sure you've already guessed, the main ingredient in thisfrozen drink is Rose Wine.
While you can't really go wrong, there are a few different types that work better in this recipe.
Pinot Noir and Malbec Rose wines, tend to be a beautiful andbright pink or red color.
While you can always usea sandy colored wine, your finished drink won'thave that same pop of color.
Picking a dry versus a sweet wine is absolutely your personal preference.
If you prefer your frozen drinks a little bit more on the sweeter side, you might wanna opt for a sweeter variety.
If you prefer them on the dry side, pick a wine with a slightly higher ABV.
Not always foolproof, butgenerally a good indication of the relative amount of sugar added.
And lastly, you wannalove the taste of the wine all by itself.
After all, the Rose Wine is only one of two main ingredients.
So the finished drinkwill taste a lot like the wine you started with.
Once your favorite Rose Wine is selected, you'll want to pour the entire bottle into a large freezer safe container.
(wine pours) Cover with a lid and freezefor at least four hours or up to overnight.
Due to the alcohol content, the Rose Wine will not freeze completely, but instead will have a slushy consistency once fully frozen.
Next let's prepare thewatermelon to be frozen.
You can either cut an entirewatermelon into one inch chunks and you can learn how atthe video right up here.
Or you can buy the pre-cutkind from your grocery store.
Place three cups ofseedless watermelon chunks in a single layer on a baking sheet, or in a freezer safe container.
Cover with a pieceplastic wrap or wax paper and freeze for at least fourhours or up to overnight.
Now that the wine in the watermelon chunks are nice and frozen it'stime to get to blending.
The type of blender youuse is a critical step in determining how smoothand slushy your Frose gets.
My personal preference is the Vitamix, since it's large enough tofit all of the ingredients and powerful enough to makethe Frose perfectly smooth.
If you don't happen to have a Vitamix, you can still make this Froserecipe in smaller batches using a NutriBullet, oradd all of your ingredients to a large food processor.
Add frozen wine, three cups of watermelon chunks, two to three tablespoons of honey.
You can also always useagavi nectar if you're vegan or regular white sugar if you do not care to avoid refined sugar, and two tablespoons of fresh Sweet Mint.
Cover the blender with a lid and blend on medium to medium-high power for one to two minutes, oruntil it is completely smooth.
This recipe yields enough watermelon Frose for about four servings.
You can also always double this recipe if you're making it for a party.
A great way to serve thissummer drink is in a cute glass with a watermelon wedge, asprig of mint and a paper straw.
And now my favorite part, the taste-test.
Or I guess in this case, the taste-sip.
Mmm-mm-mm-mmm Oh my goodness.
It tastes like you're drinking like boozy watermelon juice.
I guess it's pretty much what it is.
