Frosé Poptails

As a note to my readers: Llano Estacado gave me this product to try and compensated me for my review. All opinions from here forward are my own, and I only recommend products I truly believe in. This post also contains affiliate links.

The most fun thing about summer to me is the frozen drinks you have at your disposal. In Texas, it gets incredibly hot and while you’re sitting pool-side you’re probably craving something cold and frosty to keep the heat away.

When I go lounge by the pool with my friends, I’ve always got cold wine in my hands, but lately, I’ve wanted more. To me, it seemed natural to try out a frosé recipe and do it with one of my favorite Texas Wines, Llano Estacado. None of my parties are complete without it! They’re a true pioneer in Texas wines, boasting over 50 different varieties. There’s literally something for everyone!

Popsicles aren’t just for kiddos! I used Llano wine to create fun, boozy drinks for my friends and I. What I love about their wine is that there’s something for every palate, and they’re really affordable, crowd-pleasing wines.

Making a frosé is super simple too. All you need is frozen fruit that complements your wine (I chose strawberries, mangos, and lemons), a blender, and some popsicle molds.

The next step after choosing your fruit is to go for your favorite rose, or pink wines! I chose to blend two together for my frosé poptails! I went with the signature rose – which is a wine that truly reflects the West Texas terroir.
It’s grown in the high elevation, sandy sites of Llano Wine’s best vineyards and is an expression of what classic rosé should be: fruity, aromatic, food-friendly or enjoyable on its own on a hot, Texas summer afternoon. Honestly just perfection.

The second wine I chose was the Red Moscato. Red Moscato is a festive wine perfect for those who enjoy a sweet-styled light red wine with brunch, dessert, or on its own as a capable aperitif. It’s composed predominately of Muscat Canelli, with a small amount of red wine used for color. Ripe red apples and & strawberry aromas abound with hints of rose petal, the slight soft effervescence complements the balanced sweetness for a refreshingly
smooth finish. Designed to be lower in alcohol, Red Moscato is a great sipper on its own or perfect for accompanying spicy foods, fruit cocktail, and desserts. It’s best served well-chilled, so I thought it would be a perfect one to experiment with freezing in these frosé poptails.

Frosé poptails are incredibly simple to make, and it’s such a great dessert to share with friends. Plus, when it melts, you can drink it too!

    This is perfect for me. As a single person I feel pressured to finish the bottle so it doesn’t go flat. But I can have a couple of glasses one day and use the remaining wine to make these popsicles. And It will be perfect out by the pool.
