Three words: Frozen Wine Sorbae. Are you hooked yet? New to the Hamptons summer epicurean scene is Frosae, a unique boutique frozen dessert. Created from wine and unlike anything else on the market today, Frosae preserves the drink’s flavor and alcohol in only 176 calories.
“The sorbae has the exact taste of the wine,” says Frosae president Ben Amato. “That’s what makes us special.”
With a 1.8 percent alcohol content, Frosae is creamy, cool and full-flavored, and the addition of grapes gives it a true wine taste. Frose can be made from any type of wine, and special orders are taken on the website.
The product has had such a large initial interest that Jim Silver of Peconic Bay Winery has signed on as a wine consultant to select the wines, many of which are from Long Island and greater New York State. The dessert has garnered the attention of our local wineries and vineyards, and it will be sold at East End restaurants this summer.
“We’re having a blast,” says Amato, who describes the process of creating such an original product as rewarding, fun and, of course, delicious. We’ll drink (with a spoon) to that.
