Call it an adult slushy, slurpy, frosé, soft-Italian ice, or a milkshake—whatever you call it, it’s delicious. This fun frozen cocktail by Alex Province is inspired by his travels to Rioja, Spain, where they enjoy lemon-sorbet-cava milkshakes after meals.
• ON-DEMAND: Listen to Faith and the gang describe this cocktail during The Faith Middleton Food Schmooze®. •
Contributor Chris Prosperi imagines it as a summer barbecue palate cleaner, and Robyn Doyon-Aitken wants to start her next girls’ night with one in hand. Faith is going straight-up picnic dessert, here, and sees beautiful cups of sorbet-rosé shakes served with chocolate cookies or delicate chocolate cookie straws (pirouettes).
Alex made these for us in the studio with a dry sparkling rosé from Venice, Italy, but you can use any Cava, as Alex does, or other sparkling wine for this, really.
