Of all the summer drinks trends that have come and gone over the years, the Frosé frenzy of 2016 has arguably demonstrated the most staying power… and it’s no wonder, really.
Described by many as an adult slush puppie,
this ‘it’ cocktail is comprised of frozen rosé wine, strawberries, sugar and lemon juice.
We made ours with Coastal Reserve’s Vegan and environmentally-friendly rosé, and the result - by all accounts- is nothing short of summer in a glass!
Leading the way in sustainable wine production, Coastal Reserve Wines have partnered with not-for-profit organisation Plastic Oceans Europe, to focus on raising awareness around their decision to use light-weight, plastic-free bottles, for example, to help minimise shipping miles and emissions.
With many more of us attuning to the issue of ‘wine miles’, and of the importance of ‘doing our bit’, these are the kind of credentials that are increasingly swaying us on the sundowners, and especially now, as we head into garden party season.
In this context, ‘low-impact’ is proving the golden thread that runs through not just our beverage-buying decisions… but our behaviours as well, with the ‘odd glass’ becoming increasingly recognised (and respected) in the social lexicon.
Whether this ‘odd glass’ happens to look like a trendy Frosé, or something else, is arguably not so important as the sense of responsibility- personal AND environmental - that each carefully-calculated measure, has ultimately come to represent.
