Rosé Wine Granita
Looking for a grown-up version of one of your favorite childhood summer treats, snow cones? Look no further than the Rosé Wine Granita. Also known as a frosé, this drink is a bit trickier to make, as you need to have enough additional sugar and non-alcoholic liquid on hand to keep it frozen on the hottest summer days. But once you master it? You’ll never go back. Try a frosé-making party with your girlfriends this summer to make memories and gain incredible drink-making skills!
Susannah at Feast + West shares this recipe and prep tip: To transform this pretty drink into a snow cone, add a thin layer of liquid to a flat dish or two that will fit in your freezer and rake it through with a fork every hour or two until frozen. Serve scoops in a beautiful glass for a favorite summer cocktail or desert.
- 2 cups rosé wine
- 1/3 cup lemon juice
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup sugar
You can’t go wrong with the classics, and we’re still obsessed with the Campari Spritz that we told you about in our spritzer guide in June. It features the ultimate summer duo, Rosé and lemon, and has a sultry red hue that resembles the summer sunset you watch each night. The refreshing taste of this drink makes it perfect for pool parties, or sipping as you receive an outdoor massage with your girls!
- 2 oz. Campari
- 3 oz. dry rosé
- Splash of lemon soda
- 1 lemon wheel

Mimosas are commonly associated with brunch, and you can give them a summertime twist by adding fruitiness and your favorite pink wine. Swap out the orange juice for grapefruit juice and add a bit of rosé champagne to this refreshing drink, celebrating good times with your girls as you become innovators of the most popular brunch drink.
