As if you really needed an excuse to drink Rosa, tomorrow is National Rosa Day! This pink variety has become a harbinger of the summer season, and not just from the bottle, but in cocktails, frozen rose slushy (prose!) And even as ice cubes.
Now when you google “Rose Wine Ice Cubes” all the listings use the usual boring ice cube trays. What, trapezoids. So I decided to improve things with a different ice mold. Walla: Ice cubes of rosé rosé wine! I mean, how cute is that?
I found these silicone rose molds by Baker Depot On Amazon. They are described as soap in the shape of roses, cake or chocolate, but they are safe in the freezer so I thought it was perfect! And each rose holds about 3 ounces, which is a nice little pour that you can put wine, soda club or alcohol on.
I’m not going to bore you with instructions step by step. You know how to make ice cubes. But I will say choose a rose that you like. For the ice cubes of rosé rosé wine I used Summer water rose, Which was sent to me expressly for this purpose. You can find it at Craft and courage At the Grand Central Market for $ 20. I had never tasted the wine until this moment and found it to be super dry and acidic to the touch. It was so perfect with cheese, that its ceramics rounded it off.
Also a word of warning: like a dummy I filled the disc silicone mold with wine and then tried to transfer it to the freezer. Turns out there is no way to pick it up without pouring wine everywhere. I poured wine into my light box, on the floor that led to the freezer, in the freezer in an attempt to place it on the sliding drawer and naturally, as I slid the freezer drawer closed. Fortunately there is still enough left for this experiment. So either you put the mold in the freezer first and pour the wine directly into it or you first put the mold on a tray for easy transport and without spilling into the freezer.
For the actual freezing, I left the rosé alone for 24 hours, to adjust to the time of drinking the wine the next day. Plus, judging from other posts by Rosa Ice Cubes online, I realized it could take up a lot of time in the freezer. I honestly feared that the details of the rose might not come. It’s alcohol. After all I’m freezing.
But then when it came time to take them out of the mold, what I held in my hand was a beautiful and perfect light pink rose!
Next time I would like to try a darker and slightly sweeter rosé, and use it to cool a rosé wine cocktail, like Gin Rosa Bouquet cocktail here, Which sounds delicious.
