We all know that rosé and frosé have been pretty much the official drinks of Summer for the last few years now. I love a glass of pink wine on a hot day, so why not make it frozen as well? I’ve teamed up with Kinky Beverages to bring you this delicious and refreshing recipe for Tropical Mango Frosé using their Kinky Pink variety. Kinky Pink is a liqueur made with super premium vodka that has been distilled five times with succulent mango, blood orange, and passion fruit. It is the perfect addition to frosé because it adds so much fruity flavor and a little bit more ABV.
Tropical Mango Frosé, serves up to 6
1 bottle of Rosé (I used Le Grand Noir)
3 oz. Kinky Pink
1 1/2 oz. lemon juice
1 cup of fresh or frozen mango
2 large ice cube trays
Last year I developed an easy frosé recipe on Palm Springs Style. Instead of freezing the rosé and additional ingredients in a sheet pan and scraping it to make shaved ice I made rosé ice cubes. This allows you to blend the frosé to order without the mess and also lets you tailor how many serving you’re making.
First, make the rosé ice cubes by pouring the wine into your ice cube trays. Top each mold with a little bit of water just to ensure proper freezing. I cut my mango fresh and also froze it ahead of time. The key to a great frosé is having as many of the ingredients frozen before blending. That makes the consistency of the frosé more thick and slushy like.
Next, in the pitcher of your blender add 1 cup of frozen mango, 1 1/2 oz. lemon juice, 3 oz. Kinky Pink, and 6 rosé ice cubes (about a half a bottle). Blend on high and then pour into your desired serving vessel. If you want to make 1 serving cut this recipe in half and if you want to serve 6 people double it. Garnish your frosé with an edible flower like an orchid.
Sip and enjoy!
I’m so glad I decided to use this Kinky Pink in my Tropical Mango Frosé. It adds so much bursting, fruity, tropical flavors and compliments the fresh mango and wine so well. I thought this recipe was sweet enough without adding any additional sugar. If you feel that you want this Tropical Mango Frosé more on the sweeter side, I would recommend adding 3/4 oz. of simple syrup to the recipe above. I hope you’re enjoying your Summer and make sure next time you’re sitting poolside to whip up a batch of this Tropical Mango Frosé. Or if you’re like me, just drink it and pretend you’re poolside. Either way, the flavors will most certainly transport you somewhere tropical or wherever your heart desires´. 😉
