Frosé Ice Pops Have Arrived
Whether it was served poolside or bar side, frosé—an alcoholic slushy made from frozen rosé—was the sweet treat on wine lovers’ lips during the summer 2016 months. Now, just in time for beach season, Mashable reports that POPS, a London-based popsicle-maker, has created an ice pop made from the pink beverage.
The “Frosé” popsicle is made from rosé and raspberry, and comes in push pop form. While a regular glass of rosé contains around 12 to 13 percent alcohol, POPS’s frozen dessert contains around 4.3 percent, making the treat’s flavor—and not its boozy contents—its selling point.
Not a rosé fan? POPS sells other boozy popsicles, including Champagne, Bellini, Kir Royale, a limited-edition Moscow Mule flavor, and Frozen Summer Cup, which contains infused gin and sherry.
Before you start planning a summer soiree, keep in mind that for now, POPS are only available for purchase at select retailers in the UK, Australia, Bermuda, and European countries including France and Lithuania [PDF]. They’re also sold online—but since POPS doesn’t recommend refreezing melted POPS, it's probably best if you skip the international shipping costs and opt to sample them abroad.
