You’ve no doubt seen these pretty-in-pink drinks flooding social media channels to become the must-sip drink of summer. Yep, it’s all about the frozé come the warmer months. And, Instagram aside, they are nothing short of d-elicious.
First things first, it’s pronounced ‘fro-zay’ and secondly, you’ll be screaming ‘fro-yay!’ in no time.
But forget FOMO, you lucky, lucky Aucklanders have got nine—yes nine—frozé drinking destinations to choose from.
We know you’re gonna want one (or three!) so what are you waiting for? Get slurping those slushies!
Ponsonby Road cool kids Mr Toms have inevitably sorted out our summer drinking needs—think a blend of strawberry puree mixed with the good stuff, to form an utterly crave-worthy, cold concoction. With the perfect people-watching space out front, we know where we’ll be for after work drinks.
Forget no way Jose, we’re all about yes, way frozé! If you’re on the north side of the bridge, you might wanna pay attention! Franc’s Bar + Cafe are now serving frozé! Grab a glass of their strawberry and lime offering to fulfil your frozen rosé needs! Taxi!

With hanging lanterns, colourful floral displays and a brightly coloured vintage-style caravan bar, there is no prettier place to enjoy a glass of frozé, that’s for sure!
Remember when slush puppies were the best thing to have as a kid? Well, our childhood fave has just grown the f**k up. Ostro have completely and utterly bowled us over with their offering of not one—but two!—frozen rosé, slushy machines! Churning the good stuff at all times, we can’t wait to fill our glass (es!).
Scarlett Slimms And Lucky
Not only do these guys craft one of the most intense Bloody Mary’s —dare we say, on the planet!—but they have also got us covered on the frozé front too. Scarlett Slimms And Lucky have jumped aboard the frozen rosé trend train to bring us their delectable version. Served in their signature jars and topped with mint, this is a refreshing tipple unlike any other!
With Stoneleigh Rosé, strawberry and raspberry syrup, fresh lemon juice and water, all blended together to produce some of the best tasting frozé around, Botswana Butchery have certainly caught our eye. With their very own frozé machine on hand, you can enjoy all this and more, alongside some of the best meaty-goodness this side of the city!
Oh, Paddington Parnell, you’ve only gone and got our summer drink destination sorted. Nab yourself a glass of frozé and spend the afternoon sitting in the sun!
