Whether you’ve seen it plastered everywhere on Instagram or sampled it at some of the bars dedicated to the pink drink, it seems Frozen Rosé or Frosé is everywhere.
With that crisp, refreshing taste coupled with the cool, wispy texture it’s no wonder Frosé is a hot contender for the drink of summer.
But not all of us live nearby the Pelicano Frosé Terrace Bar and/or have a useful slushie machine that just happens to be laying about the house.
With that in mind Mateus Rosé has revealed it’s top six simple yet fun alternatives for that refreshing and tantalising rosé taste – and luckily you won’t need to buy that slushie machine!
