I have been meaning to make a Frosé all summer long, a delicious adult slushie made with Rosé, and while summer’s end is nearing (I’m sorry, but it is!), I figure it’s better late than never, right? Frosé isn’t your last minute, whip it together kind of cocktail, but it is delicious and worth the little bit of effort. And bonus: it can me made and left in the freezer for those hot summer nights or when friends pop by unexpectedly, the alcohol keeps it from freezing solid, so it’s ready when needed.
I’m often asked about the Prosecco in the name of this blog (and my now company) – simply put it’s a representation of joy and celebration. A gentle reminder to follow and nurture our bliss and celebrate, not just the extraordinary, but the seemingly ordinary moments in life as well. It serves a symbol for one of my greatest joys: travel, while conjuring memories of one of my favourite places: Italy.
Fruitier, lighter and less scary to open (it’s bottled at a lower pressure) than Champagne, it’s a humble representation of what I hope to inspire here.
Well it sure felt like fall for the first week back to school here in Calgary. Crisp mornings, leaves on walkways and the debut of the Pumpkin Spice Latte. But thankfully the weather-man is calling for sunny skies and warm temps for the weekend! Since I’m not quite ready to say good-bye to summer, I thought I would celebrate the first week back to routine with Blackberry Rose Popsicles.
Sound amazing, don’t they? They are!
