Let’s be real…Summer just doesn’t seem like summer without a frozen drink. Just make mine your best frosé and we’ll be all good. It gives me so much joy on a hot summer day!
Are frozen drinks your jam? If so, you probably love frosé too! Funny enough, I don’t typically love frozen drinks, and prefer them on the rocks. I think it’s really because I can drink them faster that way. Don’t judge me. Especially when I’m just here to help you get a good frozen drink in your life!
I Need a Moment
Saying this year has been one for the books is an understatement. I’ve been missing a lot, but focusing on finding pockets of joy in this new normal. One of the things I’m missing most is kicking it with my girls. Summers have been the backdrop for some of our most memorable moments, and I’m feeling a bit robbed of that this year. We would totally be drinking frosé in full kiki mode! Even though I’m missing them, we’ve been keeping the sistahood alive via group Facetimes, and group chats. Those virtual hugs, high fives, and LOLs are so damn magical. It’s just what we do.
One of the other things I’m finding joy in is the way we’ve rallied to support Black-owned businesses in the wake of the revolution. Black-owned brands are getting our dollars at every turn, and I’m loving supporting us. The McBride Sisters is just one of the BOBs that have become staples in our home this summer.
Now that you know the source of my inspiration for Black Girl Frosé, let’s get to the recipe!
What You Need
You can easily make frose at home with whatever blender you have. I used a Ninja Nutri blender, but totally would have pulled out my full size blender if I was making a larger batch. It all works.
I feel like the best frosés have a spirit, rosé wine, fruit, and a sweetener of some sort. I used Bombay Sapphire Gin, Black Girl Magic Rosé, St. Germain elderflower liqueur, frozen strawberries, lemon juice, honey, and ice.
My initial instinct was to use vodka, but I’m really trying with gin y’all. If you’ve read my post Impressed by Empress 1908 Gin, then you know I’m working on my aversion to gin. I swear, I will drink it until I love it. LOL

The Drink Build
First things first, tell yourself you’ll only have two because you’ll want more than that! Or not!
Secondly, you dump everything in the blender and turn it on. Once everything has blended to your desired consistency, about 30 seconds or so, pour it into a glass. That’s it. The hardest part about this recipe is avoiding the tipsy brain freeze from drinking these too fast. Consider yourself warned.
*My first batch was made sans sweetener, and while drinkable, it was missing something for me. However, feel free to leave it out if that’s your preference.
*Herbal simple syrups are amazing. I tried this with a basil simple syrup and it was too good! I may have gone back for a third.
*Last (and most important) tip, and it’s a life lesson really: There’s a bit of Black Girl Magic in everything good!
This will be one of the best frosés you’ll make. You won’t regret it…unless you end up with tipsy brain freeze, and even that regret is temporary. Tag @dashandstir if you make this, or your own special version. I love seeing your recreations!
