Kim Crawford’s Frosé

Makes five servings.

1 bottle Kim Crawford Frosé

Lemon twist to garnish

Two days before serving pour wine into a 9” x 13” pan or several ice cube trays and freeze, stirring occasionally if in a pan. When frozen solid, using a hand blender or food processor, blend frozen wine until smooth. Serve directly or freeze again for up to 1 week, covered. Garnish with lemon twist.

Tips: Freeze two or three bottles at a time for your next hot summer party.

Try with any other Kim Crawford wines.

Don’t have a pan? Freeze the wine in a large thick re-sealable bag.

Kim Crawford’s Kim de la Crème 

1 bottle Kim Crawford Frosé, well chilled

3 cups sliced strawberries

1/3 cup sugar

Club soda

1 carton vanilla ice cream

Edible flowers to garnish

In a medium bowl, mix the strawberries and sugar. Cover and let sit for 30-90 minutes mixing occasionally. Divide the strawberries and any juices between five rocks glasses, add wine and a splash of club soda. Top with a generous scoop of ice cream. Garnish with your favorite edible flowers.

Tips: Use coconut-based ice cream for dairy free/vegan option.

Substitute peaches, raspberries or any of your favorite summer fruit for the strawberries.

Use honey instead of sugar for a richer flavor.

kim crawford rhuby

Kim Crawford Rhuby Rad Cocktail

For the cocktail

1 1/2 oz Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc

1/2 oz. lemon juice

1/2 oz. rhubarb syrup

1/2 oz, Lillet Blanc Aperitif

Rhubarb ribbon for garnish

For rhubarb syrup

3/4 C thinly chopped rhubarb

1/2 C sugar

1/2 C water

1/4 tsp pinch of orange zest

For one batch (eight servings) rhubarb syrup:

Add the sugar, water, rhubarb and orange zest to a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until syrup thickens slightly and rhubarb starts to soften and break down (approximately 15 minutes). Strain through a fine mesh strainer. Use the back of a spoon to push on the rhubarb to extract any remaining liquid from the pulp. Let cool and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

For the cocktail:

Add the lemon juice, rhubarb syrup, Lillet Blanc, and Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc to a shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain over new ice into a coupe glass. Garnish with a rhubarb ribbon. (note: a vegetable peeler works well for making nice long rhubarb ribbons).
