F is for Frozen Strawberry Lemonade

“F” is for Frozen Strawberry Lemonade! Check out this frozen fun fruit inspired recipe that is a must this Memorial Day. “F” is also for “Fan” of Gordon Ramsay and I’m excited to see his live show @TheFWordFOX and take away some fantastic cooking tips. The F Word premieres Wednesday May 31st, at 9/8c on FOX. #ad

Frozen Strawberry Lemonade (Ingredients for every 2 glasses served.)

For the strawberry layer:

1 to 1 1/2 cup frozen strawberries ¼ cup simple syrup * ½ cup cold water ½ cup ice
For the Lemonade:
2 lemons, juiced (discard seeds but keep the pulp) ¼ cup simple syrup 1 cup ice


In a blender combine the strawberries, ¼ cup simple syrup, ½ cup cold water and ½ cup ice. Blend until smooth. The mixture will be thick enough to spoon into 2 glasses. Rinse the blender carafe and add the lemon juice, lemon pulp, ¼ cup simple syrup and 1 cup ice. Blend until smooth and pour over the strawberry mixture in the glass.
Garnish with lemon slices or strawberries if desired.

The kids love to add a splash of their favorite lemon lime soda for the fizz factor!

For quick non layered version add all ingredients to blender.
Serve immediately
* Simple syrup is made by combining equal parts water and sugar. I used 1 cup granulated sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until it starts to boil and all the sugar is dissolved. Cool and refrigerate in a mason jar until needed.

Roseshire Roses delivered right on time for Mother's Day


She gave you babies—and she’s still a babe. Don’t you dare send her the same old dial-a-florist bouquet you’d order for the office, or for grandma. 

There’s only one bloom that says love with undertones of lust and desire—the elegant rose, beautifully displayed. So present her with something epic: a Mother’s Day creation from Roseshire. Sexy, spicy...perhaps even a bit naughty.

Fresh, silky long-stemmed roses will arrive in our signature box. The reveal is an experience by itself. She opens the box slowly, savoring the anticipation, to lay bare your chosen bouquet. A lush bed of vibrant, velvety petals and green leafy stems awaits. Each is selected and packed by hand, ready to fill the room with romance.

Our beautiful roses are sustainably sourced from partner growers. They are packed within hours of being cut in the field, and shipped to you overnight by priority FedEx.

Gentlemen, a Mother’s Day bouquet from Roseshire will remind your special mama that she’s a lady. You may be late for brunch.

I love that this KISS KISS collection comes in pink and white combination, all pink, all white or all red in 1, 2, 3 or 4 dozen delivered right to the door, just in time for Mother's Day!

About the Bouquet

Spring ignites nature with vibrant colors, and we couldn't help but get excited to create our own line of Spring as well. Our Spring Collection encompasses our best roses in our new Spring Blue Box.
Stem sizes may vary from 17"-24" in length. Roses are hand arranged and arrive in our trademark Roseshire Box. 

The Roseshire Promise

We are dedicated to making Roseshire the source of the world’s most extraordinary roses. For us, extraordinary roses are overwhelming beautiful and of superior quality.

Taking Care of Your Roses

Roseshire roses arrive within hours of being cut in the field. We keep them in ideal conditions, handle them tenderly and place them in packaging designed to absorb shocks and protect against humidity. With proper care, they should last 5-10 days.
  • Dissolve the rose food into lukewarm water.
  • Remove any leaves that may touch the water. Leaves will introduce bacteria to the water,        causing roses to wilt more quickly.
  • Use clean, sharp cutters to trim the stems on a diagonal, ¼” from the bottom, for maximum water absorption.
  • Place stems into water.
