While I love summer because of its’ beautiful sunshine and lazy days with my kiddos, there is another thing that moms like me absolutely LOVE about summer: it’s Frose’ season. And while I would love to be able to live at the Hampton social (I mean, they have couches and the “Rose All Day” neon signs would make a great nightlight), my wallet and my family probably wouldn’t allow it. So what’s a frose’ loving mom to do? Make her own! Yes, that’s right, you can make delicious frose’ all year long and you don’t even need many ingredients. But since I love to be different in all aspects of life, I’ve put a small twist on my Lavender Frose’ recipe that is a definite crowd pleaser.

Frose’ Making Tips
First off, let me tell you that you honestly don’t need any fancy equipment in order to make frose’…but it definitely helps. I’m not talking about those massive slushie machines you find at restaurants. I’m talking about an ice cream maker. Cuisinart is a great brand with perfect sized options, just remember to put the churning bowl in the freezer 24 hours prior to use.
If you don’t have an ice cream maker, don’t worry. Instead what you need is a large and deep pan that will fit safely (because you don’t want your frose’ spilling all over your frozen nuggets and vegetables, right?!?) and securely in a freezer.
Lastly, you want to make sure that you are using a delicious rose’ as your frose’ base. My tried and true favorite is from 90+ Cellars, especially since it can be delivered to my door.
Lavender Frose’ Recipe
While there might be some debate whether or not you need to add additional flavors (like syrup) or alcohol (such as vodka) to your frozen rose, but I think that adding more flavors just makes your frose’ even more refreshing and delicious.
*90+ Cellars Rose’ (chilled)
*1 cup Tito’s Vodka (chilled)
*1/2 cup Lavender Syrup
*1 cup Strawberries
*Sugar for glass dusting
*Mint for garnish
Before you start dumping all of the ingredients into your ice cream maker, you need to prep strawberry puree. Wash, chop and blend strawberries in a blender or my personal favorite, a Magic Bullet machine and put aside.
Next, turn on the ice cream machine and slowly add the rose’, vodka, lavender syrup, and strawberry puree. Let mix until you end up with a slushie type texture, about 15 minutes. While the Lavender Rose’ is churning, rub a lime wedge around the glasses and dip into sugar.
Once you have added your Lavender Frose’ to the glass (preferably a margarita glass!), add mint for decoration and enjoy!
