Sparkling Elderflower Frosé

And we’re back!! We’re happy to be here, but we’re sad to not be waking up to the sound of waves and watching sunsets like these (below) every night, womp womp. We are excited to share our first post in collaboration with Our Niche Spirits, who were kind of enough to send us some alcohol to play with 🙂

We’re starting off with a cocktail that killed it with the ladies this weekend – frosé.

Our tasty cocktail used Schlumberger Sparkling Rosé as a base, along with a bit of Elderflower Lemonade to add a little sweetness and flavor (which we added before we froze). We then topped off the slushy cocktail with more of the Schlumberger Sparkling Rosé to make sure we felt some of the bubbles!

Making the drink is pretty easy, you just need to take your time freezing. We chose to use the Chef John method of freezing (pour your rosé + elderflower lemonade into a shallow dish and freeze, taking it out every so often to stir with a fork, creating the texturized pieces) but you can also do it this way.

Easy, right?! Serve up in your cutest glasses and top with more sparkling wine, and fruity garnish of your choosing!


Special thanks to Our Niche for the tasty Schlumberger Sparkling Rosé & to Treasures Old Lyme for the complimentary glasses.

Did you guys know that tomorrow is National Rosé Day?? We’re awfully excited, because nothing says “I’m a fancy person enjoying this delightful weather” quite the way a nice cold crisp glass of rosé does. Enjoy, and have a great weekend, everyone!

cct // So apparently the Hipster phase is dead, and the next despised group of people sounds a little too familiar…it’s the “I want to be creative and fulfilled in my job, even if it means taking a pay cut” person. You fall into this category if you: really want to go to Austin soon because you heard it’s incredible, love Seinfeld even though it went off the air when you were 16, and you have thousands of Instagram followers, but almost no Twitter followers. YUP sounds about right…
