All the Ways to Consume (Frozen!) Wine This Summer

Your favorite warm-weather beverage is back!

Related To:

The Aperol Spritz may be the new "it" drink of 2017, but I'm sentimental, and, therefore, still drinking frozen wine by the pitcher. If you're still heart-eyed over last summer's coolest drink (ba-dum-tss!), then you'll love these new takes on frosé. From pushable rosé popsicles to granita and sorbet, these are the best ways to enjoy wine for the next three months.
