  • 1 bottle rosé wine (pick a darker one)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 10 ounces frozen pineapple chunks
  • 25 fresh mint leaves (divided)
  • ounces fresh lemon juice (5 tablespoons)


  • A day ahead, choose a freezer container or large pan that is large enough to hold the wine. Find a flat space in the freezer that can fit that container. Fill the container with the bottle of rosé. Cover with a lid or plastic wrap. Carefully transfer the container into the reserved space in the freezer. Freeze overnight or at least 6 hours. Since rosé is alcohol, it won’t be frozen solid.
  • In a small saucepan, combine sugar and ½ cup water. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly to melt the sugar, about 3 minutes. Add pineapple chunks. Stir and bring back to a boil. Remove from heat. Let it sit for 10 minutes. Then stir in 20 mint leaves. Leave it alone once again for another 20 minutes, so the flavors can get into the syrup. Strain the syrup through a fine-mesh sieve into a small bowl. Do not press on the pineapples. Just gently stir around to let the syrup drip down. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge, about 30 minutes. Save the pineapples for other uses. Discard the mint.
  • In a blender, add lemon juice, 5½ ounces (½ cup plus 3 tablespoons) pineapple mint syrup, frozen rosé, 5 fresh mint leaves, and 1 cup of ice cubes. Blend until smooth. Cover with a lid and transfer the blender jar along with the frosé into the freezer. Freeze until thickened, about 25 – 35 minutes.
  • Blend again until smooth. Pour into serving glasses and serve immediately.


  1. Get a darker rosé if you can. Not only darker rosé has a stronger taste, its darker color also makes prettier drinks.
  2. If you’re a using a large pan without lid, I suggest to use something pretty big, like a 9x 13 pan. Because wine could easily spill when you’re moving the pan around. It almost happened to me.
  3. You can also use a gallon Ziploc bag for the rosé. Pour the wine into the Ziploc bag and place the bag inside a dish to freeze overnight.
  4. Don’t throw away the pineapple chucks after making the syrup. The pineapples can be used as topping for pancakes, waffles, ice cream, cheesecakes etc.
