Place the strawberries, sugar, lemon juice and rosé (if using) in a food processor and puree well. Taste your mixture and adjust the flavors. If it is too tart, add a little sugar. If it is too sweet, add a little lemon juice.

Place the mixture in a shallow casserole dish and freeze until almost firm, but still a little slushy. Transfer to a food processor, add the ginger and mint, and blend until smooth. Place back in the casserole dish and freeze until almost firm once more. Give it another go-round in the food processor and then freeze until firm.

Serve garnished with sprigs of mint, a few strips of candied ginger and a small slice of juicy lemon. (Oh and perhaps a local blossom or two!)
