Strawberry Frosé

FroseI had the most awkward conversation with the check out guy at Trader Joe’s the other day. First of all, it was a nightmare even getting to TJ’s because there’s some Solar Convention this week at Moscone and the downtown sidewalks are flooded with guys in suits who do that thing where they walk forward while looking down at their phones (or in one extreme case, a laptop.) I bumped into several of them on purpose and I’m not sorry. Seriously, there’s nothing more irritating than someone not watching where they’re going. Except, maybe, people who voice-text in public. You know who you are.

Anyway, I’m at Trader Joe’s at 1PM (first mistake) and literally everyone there is buying like, a sandwich, because they all have real, adult jobs, and I have exactly one bottle of rosé in my hand and my Lululemons on and I think it’s pretty clear I’m not going to work today. And I go to get in line and there are so many people that there are those snaking ropes, you know, the ones that file people into a nice orderly line while they’re waiting to get on Space Mountain for like, two and a half hours. So I’m already, like, over it, but I get in line and I wait and I wait and I finally get to the checker and I put my bottle of rosé on the counter and then this awkward conversation ensues:

Me: Just this.
Him: What are you doing with this?
Ok, first of all, What am I doing with this? I’m going to buy it and then it’s going to be mine and then I can do whatever I want with it. But it was like he knew I wasn’t going to just drink it so…
Me: I’m making frosé.
Him: Frosé?
Me: Yes.
Him: What’s frosé?
Me: It’s frozen rosé.
Him: How do you know how to make that?
Me: The internet.
Him: Your friend?
Me: I’m sorry?
Him: Your friend, the internet?
Me: …
Him: …
Him: Well, have a nice day.
Me: Yep.

And then I awkwardly turned and gtf outta there and walked home past Moscone and all the zombie men on their phones and when I finally got home, I made this.

2 cups strawberries, roughly chopped
1/4 cup vodka
1 bottle rosé
2 cups ice
1 lemon, juiced

Easiest directions eve: Blend all ingredients until smooth. Enjoy:)
