Thank you to Barefoot Wine for sponsoring this post! All thoughts and opinions are my own, as always. 😉
Guys!! Officially coming to you from the other side – and by the other side, I mean my *thirties.* PAUSE FOR EFFECT. 😛 Not gonna lie, it was something that I was literally dreading for the longest, but now that it’s actually here I’ve decided to just embrace it. After all, life is good! Age is just a number. I feel happy and blessed in my everyday life – and while nothing ever turns out quite like you plan, I feel like I’m on a path that I’m excited about. So all that to say…20’s, you were alright. Now I’m old and wise so…bring it on 30’s. OKAY enough of the sap, let’s talk about what really matters…the fact that it’s SUMMER and this bomb Summer Frosé with Barefoot Wine Frosé recipe I made. 🙂
Normally this time of year Daniel and I are off traveling, so I’ve been craving Europe in a BIG way lately. Specifically Italy…what I wouldn’t give to be experiencing a gorgeous Italian summer right now, complete with turquoise waters and refreshing granita. Oil me up and throw me onto the Amalfi Coast, am I right? But hey, in the spirit of making lemonade out of lemons (Italian lemons, obviously), we decided to bring a little slice of Europe to our own backyard in the form of a Euro-style picnic! Complete with baguettes, fig spread, lots of fresh fruit, and of course a little Barefoot wine.
Guys, picnics are seriously so good for the soul. There’s something about eating outside in the sunshine that just is so simple and pleasant and beautiful. And, since July is apparently national picnic month (who knew?), we spiced it up a little extra and made a yummy blended frosé to go with our snacks! It was my first time making one but it was super easy to throw together was a great refreshing treat for these hot LA days.
So let’s put this baby together! Here’s what you need:
Barefoot Wine Frosé Recipe
Barefoot Rosé Wine
- 1/2 a bottle
- 1 cup frozen peaches, you can add more to taste
- one handful of frozen strawberries, can add more or less to taste
Honey or Agave Nectar:
- 2 – 4 teaspoons
- You can skip this step if your rosé is sweet enough on its own!
Blend it all together, throw a sprig of mint or rosemary in if you fancy, and drink UP! It is seriously so good and refreshing and reminded me of the Italian granitas we would have on the Amalfi coast. GUYS I MISS ITALY! Have I made that clear enough in this post lol?
Whether you’re a rosé person or not, I think you should totally pick up a bottle of Barefoot and modify this recipe to make you own little blended summer refresher. What have y’all been drinking this summer? Is anyone else missing traveling as much as me right now? Tell me all about your summa plansss!
