Frosé is the latest cocktail trend to sweep the internet. Essentially just another way to enjoy a delicious glass of rosé wine, Frosé is a frozen cocktail made by combining frozen rosé wine, lemon juice and sugar.

And you can now get your frosé hit in delicious, ice lolly form too. We know – how good does that sound?! Made using wine and fresh raspberries, Ocado now stock their own frosé lollies, and they’re the perfect solution for cooling down in the hotter weather. We’re going to stock up…

And frosé is going down a storm stateside too! According to the Wall Street Journal, it’s becoming the biggest boozy summer trend for New Yorkers. And if the fashionable set across the pond are loving it, who are we to say any different?
