Hello I am here with your weekend treat!

Which is the easiest most delicious frosty treat you can make right now. Seriously, when you see how simple this is you won’t believe it. 

Guys, this could not be easier. I mean, it’s very embarrassing just HOW easy this is.

All you need is:

A bottle of rosé, right out of the fridge.

Frozen mango.

YEP.

Yes. That is it. Much like my lemonade frosé or frozen strawberry lemonade, that is all you need to make this come together fast. These are SO incredibly simple but really delicious at the same time. Especially if you’re a mango freak like we are over here.

My watermelon frosé from a few years ago is one of my favorite summer drinks EVER. If you can even call it a drink. It’s a grown up slushy/dessert and so lovely for summer. Especially the dog days of August when it’s so super hot. I’m always looking for new twists on, well, everything.

So of course mango had to come into play.

We use frozen mango a lot – mostly in smoothies, occasionally in a frozen mango margarita. Regardless, I always have it in the freezer and since it’s so accessible, this recipe can be made in a pinch. Plus, it’s much easier for me to have good frozen mango as opposed to fresh mango – I can rarely find good ones that are ripe in time for me to use them. 

Also! It’s possible that I love rosé even more when it’s frozen, so this really hits the spot. It’s refreshing, icy, cooling and perfect right now. Pop in a sprig of mint and let’s go!  (more…)

blueberry lavender syrup

Every time I make a fun new drink for summer I call THEEEE drink for summer. Like I declare it’s the best drink you can make this summer. And it’s not that I’m wrong, I very much feel that in the moment. 

Which means that again, I’m telling you that this is the drink of the summer. THEEE drink of the summer.

It’s so cooling and icy with classic summer flavors that just work in the heat. I find a vodka soda with lots of lime to be refreshing and this is an elevated version of that. 

pouring blueberry lavender syrup over ice

Flavored vodka sodas are my thing. I’ve done a cucumber vodka soda, a cherry lime vodka soda and a clementine vodka soda! So good.

I have loved the blueberry lavender combo forever. I’ve made blueberry lavender scones, blueberry lavender chia jam, blueberry ricotta cake with lavender glaze and even blueberry mojitos with lavender syrup! Lavender complements blueberry and together you get this lovely combination that screams summer.

This blueberry lavender syrup is delightful. I make my lavender vanilla syrup all summer long for iced coffee, and dare I say that you can probably take this and put it in your coffee too. I know some people go for more fruity flavors with coffee so it definitely works. 

The syrup is super easy and you can make it ahead of time and keep it in the fridge. I do equal parts water + sugar then a big handful of blueberries and a pinch of culinary lavender.

Oh and I find my culinary lavender on amazon – it’s the easiest place to get it. I have some at all times because I use it frequently and it lasts a very long time.

Once I make the syrup and it cools, I do strain it to remove the lavender and blueberry bits. I don’t want chunks of anything coming up my straw so this is the best way, plus the syrup lasts longer in the fridge this way.

The other ingredients?

Just your classic vodka and soda. I use Tito’s and whatever club soda I have on hand. You could use a flavored seltzer water if you have one, but I let the blueberry lavender syrup shine.

If you want to make these for a party, I suggest making a jar of the “mixer.” So combine the syrup and vodka in a jar and shake or stir, then store it in the fridge. When it comes time to make a new drink, pour over ice and top it off with the soda.

You don’t want to make a big pitcher with the soda because you’ll lose all that effervescence for the drinks.

These are super fun, pretty, absolutely delicious and perfect for this weekend! (more…)
