Virgin Rosé Frozé
Rosé. Don’t be basic. Just kidding, do what you want!
For those looking for a non-alcoholic way to make it through the remaining inferno of summer, I have a yummy frozen virgin botanical treat for you to try. It kind of sounds like I’m telling you to make food out of frozen virgins, but that’s not what I meant...🧛♀️ If you're looking for ways to stay youthful, try my Midoriko Superfood Powder or jade facial rollers instead.
Anyhoo, I’ve posted on my Instagram about making cold-brew rosewater/tea. Cold brewing is great for more delicate herbs and flowers and can help your tea to retain it's properties as hot water can sometimes diminish them. And it’s super easy to do. Just add your herbs or flowers to water in a glass jar and let them sit on the counter or in the fridge for at least 8 hours (overnight is best, you can also let them be in the moonlight to absorb those good cosmic vibes).
This recipe is basically a delicious grown-up botanical slushy made with the delicate flavor of roses from your homemade cold brew.
Roses are anti-inflammatory and contain antioxidants and have been used in beauty preparations for centuries. They’re also antibacterial and have antidepressant properties. Ancient Chinese medicine used them for everything from menstrual and digestive issues to pain from injuries.
You can make this recipe non-virgin with the addition of a little vodka or gin (or even get fancy and add a little actual Rosé), it’s up to you. But it’s so good as-is and everyone can enjoy it this way! And they make super cute little shooters that will impress the guests at your next party. Read on below for the simple recipe.
maple syrup, agave or honey to taste (honey makes it non-vegan of course-I was blessed to get some amazing local honey from my friend that I used for this recipe!)
vanilla extract (optional)
dried rose petals to top (optional)
After straining, make the rosewater tea into ice cubes by adding your sweetener (and vanilla extract if you're using it) and freezing in ice cube trays
Add a few ice cubes to the blender and pulse until a slushy consistency is formed-if you're adding alcohol do that before blending-you may need to add more ice cubes to make it stay slushy
Add to cups, sorbet bowls or shot glasses and optionally top with more rose petals, serve immediately
