Cocktail Hour: Frosé-tini


Frosé cocktails in October? Why not?! It's still crazy hot in the Bay Area, so a refreshing cocktail is very welcome.

There are a lot of frosé cocktail recipes out there, but most are sweeter drinks than I’d like. This Frosétini has only a hint of sweetness, just enough to balance out the flavors and give it a little of tanginess.

It’s made using my strawberry vodka. I regularly make this flavored vodka using the tops I cut off of hulled strawberries. It’s incredibly easy and uses something that would otherwise be thrown away!

The drink is more of a martini – hence the name – that’s topped with a rosé floater. You don’t need to use an expensive rosé for this. Pick something of good quality but that isn’t pricey. In this case I used a bottle of La Vieille Ferme Rosé 2018. This wine is dry, refreshing, and easy-drinking, and it's inexpensive to boot with an SRP of $12, but often found for considerably less. The line is made by the quality conscious Perrin Family (learn more about them in this recent post on Somm's Table), so it checks all the boxes for what I was looking for in this scenario.

This bottle of wine was provided as a media sample. No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.

  • 1 750 ml bottle of rosé (enough for about 6 cocktails)
Per cocktail:
  • 3 to 4 oz strawberry vodka
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp simple syrup (or to taste)
  • ½ Tbsp lemon juice
  • Ice
  • Sliced or quartered strawberries, for garnish


  1. Pour a bottle of rosé into a 13x9" pan and freeze until for at least 6 hours, or until almost solid f (it won't completely solidify because of the alcohol).
  2. Pour the rest of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake, then strain into a chilled martini glass.
  3. Use an ice cream scooper (or large spoon) to scrape out a couple of scoops of frozen rosé into the glass.
  4. Garnish glass with a strawberry slice and serve.
