How To Make The Perfect Frosé, Because You Deserve It

Next, I'll bet you're guessing what exactly a frosé is. Well, you may as well ask: 'what is summer?' because a frozen rosé slushie is a summer essential.

And since the trend first stormed the warm-weather sipping scene way back in 2016, it doesn't appear to have lost much (or any) traction for all ensuing seasons.

Summer is on officially here (although the weather might argue differently) and this chilly pink beverage is everywhere — mostly back gardens because y'know, social distancing, stay at home, etc. but more importantly, shots of these frosted glasses, complete with flower petals and pastel paper straws, are plastered across our Instagram feeds (#frosé).
