Just in time for pool season, a new book, Session Cocktails: Low Alcohol Drinks for Any Occasion by Drew Lazor, shares dozens of light drinks, including this recipe for a refreshing frozen rosé cocktail (called a frosé) blended with grapefruit liqueur and crowned with Campari, the Italian aperitif.

The blender-and-ice treatment will work on any bottle of rosé wine—we love this one from Early Mountain in Virginia (although it’s also a perfect sipper all on its own).


Ingredients

    • 4 oz. dry rosé wine

    • 1 oz. Giffard Pamplemousse

    • ¾ oz. fresh lemon juice

    • 1 cup crushed ice

    • ½ oz. Campari


Preparation

  1. Put wine, Giffard Pamplemousse, lemon juice, and ice in a blender and process until smooth. Pour into a rocks glass and float the Campari on top. Garnish with lemon wheel.
