Summer is my favorite time of year to entertain at home. I love having people over on an early Friday evening or lazy Sunday afternoon. Grilling up some bites, enjoying wine and of course ice cold sweet treats. There is just something about warm days and carefree vibes of summertime that makes entertaining all the more enjoyable. And of course when entertaining at home in the summertime rose is always flowing.
I partnered with Joybird to add some new fun pieces to my living room just in time for my next summer party! If you’re not familiar with Joybird, they offer custom-made curated furniture and I’m obsessed with them. Their new Eliot Chairs in Royale Blush were the perfect addition to my home. And the Winslow Sofa tied my mid-century living room together perfectly with the chairs. Those Eliot Chairs are not only cute, they are so comfy too. Large enough to curl into with a book or for an afternoon nap.
The new pink Joybird additions to my house pair perfectly with rose so I created the ultimate summer treat for entertaining guests at home using Winc’s new Cocomero rose – Watermelon Frose. The watermelon not only adds a nice balanced sweetness it also makes for a fun serving vessel for the drink. Yes way Frose is my new motto! It’s the best way to enjoy rose when the temperatures rise and it’s super simple to whip up. Keep reading below for the full recipe.

1 bottle of rosé frozen (Winc Cocomero rose)
1 cup watermelon juice
1/4 simple syrup
1/2 of a lime juiced
1 cup ice cubes (if more of an icy texture is desired)
Pour the rosé into ice cube trays and freeze for at least 6 hours or preferably overnight. Cut watemelon in half. Scoop out watermelon and blend to juice. Place watermelon juice in a pitcher and refrigerate until needed.
Make the simple syrup: combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly until dissolved. Refrigerator until ready to make the drink.
Place the rosé ice cubes, watermelon juice, simple syrup, and lime juice in a blender and blend until combined and creamy. Pour into halved watermelon and garnish with mint. Or pour into coupe glasses and garnish each glass with a sprig of mint.
