Frozen Rosé and watermelon cocktails

A fun Summer treat – effortless and deliciously refreshing!

Preparation time : 20 mins + 5 hrs freezing time Cooking time : 2 mins Servings : 6
Ingredients
  • 750 ml rosé wine
  • 500 ml watermelon - chopped
  • 125 ml sugar
  • 125 ml water
  • 60 ml lime juice
  • 4 chamomile tea bags
  • To serve:
  • 500 ml watermelon - diced
  • handful mint leaves
Method

Combine the wine and watermelon in a blender and blend until smooth.


Transfer to a freezer-friendly container and freeze until slushy-like in texture, at least 5 hours or overnight.


Loosen the mixture with a fork. 


Combine the sugar, water, lime juice and tea bags in a small saucepan over medium heat and simmer, 2 mins.


Remove it from the heat and leave to steep until cool, 30 mins.


Discard the tea bags.


Combine the slushy rosé mixture and sugar syrup in a blender and blend until smooth.


Pour the cocktails into glasses and garnish with the diced watermelon and mint.
 


TIP:
Depending on the size of your blender, it might be trickier to blend the cocktail mixture all in one go.  If needed, simply blend the cocktails in batches. Add a splash of water or cloudy apple juice if the blender struggles to get going: this will make blending much easier.
