Rose Lemonade|Lemon juice with Home made Rose Extract

 I had a bunch of red roses which i wanted to use to make rose syrup which never happened.And i was wondering how to not waste these roses which initially were to make crystallized rose petals to garnish a cake(that never happened too) :)
But this was a good refreshing drink on a warm afternoon.

The color of the lemonade is completely natural i haven;t added any artificial colors.

Preparation time : 10 minutes
Makes 3 small cups

You need

Rose petals 1/2 cup
Sugar 1/2 cup or as you need
Lime 1 small
Water 3-4 cups
CLoves/Rose essence 2 additional

  • Wash the rose petals in water and drain the petals onto a kitchen towel.
  • Add sugar to 2 cups water and boil until the sugar has dissolved.
  • In one cup water add the rose petals, cloves and allow to boil.The color will be a dull brown.
  • Add freshly squeezed lime juice to this, the color will change to a bright crimson color.
  • Mix this to the sugar water and mix well.Allow to cool completely before serving.

Enjoy fresh rose lemonade and cool yourself.This drink will make a refreshing drink for your guests on festive days.Looks really attractive too.

Tips :
- I didn't add cloves initially thinking there would be flavour from the rose petals but theres only color and no flavour so i added some cloves.If you have rose essence will work well too.
- You might want to add more sugar according to your taste.
