Tassel Ridge® Frozen Strawberry Rosé

1 bottle Tassel Ridge Iowa St. Croix Rosé
½ cup water
½ cup sugar
8 oz fresh strawberries, hulled and quartered
⅓ cup fresh lemon juice
1 cup crushed ice

Pour Tassel Ridge Iowa St. Croix Rosé into 9 x 13-inch glass baking dish. Freeze at least 6 hours or until almost solid (the alcohol will keep it from freezing solid). Meanwhile, combine water and sugar in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes. Add strawberries. Remove from heat. Let stand about 30 minutes to infuse syrup with strawberry flavor. Strain into small bowl through fine-mesh strainer, without pressing on solids. Cover. Chill until cold, about 30 minutes. Scrape frozen Tassel Ridge Iowa St. Croix Rosé into blender. Add lemon juice, ½ cup strawberry syrup, and crushed ice. Purée until smooth. Put blender jar in freezer for 25 to 35 minutes. Remove from freezer. Blend until slushy. Serves 4–6.

Wine Recommendation: Tassel Ridge Iowa St. Croix Rosé 

With this recipe, I’d want a very fruity, flavorful rosé, and Tassel Ridge Iowa St. Croix Rosé is a good choice. Iowa St. Croix Rosé is a dry rosé with strawberry, raspberry, peach, and nectarine notes and a slightly drying finish. Made from St. Croix grapes grown in our Mahaska County, Iowa, vineyards.—Bob Wersen, Owner, Tassel Ridge Winery
