Rosé Wine Slushie with LYV Wines and Rose Water

Who doesn’t love a good Wine Slushie for Spring and Summer Time? This time, I’m bringing out the Rosé and using Rose Water to bring this Rosé Wine Slushie to life! I’ll also be diving into where and when to use Rose Water in this recipe and amongst other cocktails as well.

Choosing your Wine for a Rosé Wine Slushie

I have to say, choosing a Rosé Wine for this recipe is quite forgiving. But I always suggest to go with what you love, but also, MAKE SURE IT’S DRY! The recipe I built here works perfecting with LYV Rosé Wine. It’s got a lot of Acid and Tannins for me, hence why I needed to increase the sugar a bit with my final recipe.

Plus this is a bottle that will grab everyones attention, and great for repurposing around your house! From acting as a floral vase, or your new Water Pitcher, this draws your eyes in, and is a great addition to the Slushie recipe I share below.

Let’s Talk Rose Water!

Rose Water is not something to take lightly. This is one of the few ingredients things where I am EXTRA careful on how much I put into a cocktail or my dessert recipes because a little can go a long way, and a long way will start to taste like soap which would be a shame. When shopping for Rose Water, you tend to find it in the International section of Grocery Stores or in the Dessert / Baking Aisle. It’s a small bottle, so keep your eyes open.

Now if you’re familiar with Rose Water, it’s often found in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern Cuisine / Desserts and it lends well with CREAM. That’s why a drop of Rose Water in Creamy cocktails like the Ramos Gin Fizz or White Russian, can actually be a beautiful addition. But as I said, be mindful. A single drop too much, and it will overwhelm the entire dish / Cocktail.

Working with Hibiscus

I’d like to give a special shout out to PLUCK Teas, as their Hibiscus Ice Tea Blend just worked out perfectly in this cocktail. I love using Hibiscus for a number of reasons. It’s a natural way of incorporating a stunning and vibrant colour to any cocktail or beverage. I love the almost savoury notes to Hibiscus, as well as its acidity and bitterness. It can add so much complexity to a single drink. Plus, I know Hibiscus with a Rosé Wine and Rose Water would marry these two flavours together so well.

For this recipe, ensure you don’t put any sugar. Adjust the sugar in the final stages so you can better balance your cocktail!

Options for Freezing

If you’re like me and hate how quickly blended drinks can melt, well I’ve got a solution for you. When I was getting frustrated, I decided to bring out my Freezie containers and place the Wine Slushie in there and LET ME TELL YOU HOW HAPPY I WAS. Still delivered a great taste and it can transport easily if you wanted to bring it out camping or outdoors. It’s a go-to, if I know I’m going to blend something but won’t be able to drink it right away.

The most important thing to note when working on blended / frozen cocktails is that you actually need to increase your typical sugar ratio. The freezing / blending technique tends to mute some of the flavours and a touch of additional sugar really helps make the flavours pop.
