The title of this delightful little recipe says it all: refreshing. This simple and delicious mint watermelon frosé is perfect to bring poolside or blend up for a night in with friends. Apart from freezing the watermelon, this drink comes together in 5 minutes or less. It’s simply summer in a cup.
Mint Watermelon Frosé Ingredients
Frozen Watermelon: We’ll get into how to properly freeze watermelon later on in this post. This super hydrating and delicious summer fruit perfectly complements the fresh mint and other flavors in this frosé.
Rosé: I mean obviously. What’s frosé without rosé? The notes in rosé tend to be more fruity and floral, which makes it the perfect wine for light and summery mixed drinks.
Fresh Mint: Mint and watermelon are a match made in heaven for creating a cooling and refreshing flavor profile.
Fresh Lemon Juice: Just to brighten up all our flavors. I promise this won’t cause our mint watermelon frosé to taste like lemons!
Maple Syrup or Honey: This is totally optional depending on your tastebuds. If you like your mixed drinks a little sweeter, then go for it. I tend to skip it, but there is no wrong way to enjoy frosé!
How to Freeze Watermelon
The watermelon-freezing process could not be more simple. You simply cut your watermelon into cubes, lay them on a baking sheet, and stick them in the freezer overnight. This will ensure that the watermelon doesn’t stick together. Once the watermelon is frozen, it can be transferred from the baking sheet to a Stasher or Ziplock bag for safe keeping until you’re ready to make your mint watermelon frosé.

Mint Watermelon Frosé
- Cutting Board
- Chef's Knife
- Sheet Pan
- 4 cups watermelon cubed and frozen (see instructions for method)
- 1 750 ml bottle rosé wine
- 5 leaves fresh mint
- juice of half a lemon
- 1-2 tbsp maple syrup or honey (optional if you like things sweeter)
- Freeze your watermelon! Spread watermelon cubes evenly on a sheet pan so no pieces are touching. Freeze overnight or for at least 6 hours. After the slices are completely frozen, you can transfer them to a Ziplock or Stasher bag for safe keeping.
- Once watermelon is frozen, add all ingredients to a blender and blend on high until well-combined, about 30 seconds. Be careful not to blend for too long, as the texture will be thinner and less frozen. Serve immediately.
