Easy Strawberry Frosé combine a few of my favorite things: wine, the color pink, berries, and fun straws. I will totally admit that I love frozen cocktails, and this one could not be easier to make.

Strawberry Frosés are perfect for any brunch, holiday, or girls' night! I know my girlfriends would love to have appetizers and frosé during our next night out. I love pink party drinks, and these would also be the perfect cocktail for Mother's Day - especially with a pretty pink tablescape!

You can't forget the fun straws - I never do. I have so many straws it's embarrassing, but I love them so much! You never know when you might have a spontaneous get-together and need some cute napkins or straws for cocktails. 'Always be prepared and ready to party' is my motto!

When choosing a wine, take into account who will be drinking it. Do your friends tend to favor more dry or sweet wines. I chose a bottle that wasn't too sweet, so I could add in my own strawberry simple syrup and adjust the sweetness. It helped make the drink perfectly pink, because the rosé lightens when it is frozen and blended.

You will probably need to use 3 ice cube trays when freezing the wine. If necessary, the ice cubes can be made in batches the day before and kept in a freezer plastic bag until blending.
