Rose Petal Lemonade

Harvest fresh rose blossoms for this gorgeous summer beverage!

Garden roses are one of my favorite scents in the garden! Capture their magic in this refreshing summer lemonade. Be sure to gather fresh rose petal from a trusted source! Roses sold at garden centers might have something sprayed on them, so only gather from home-grown or wild sources that you know are safe. Wild roses are a great alternative to use in this lemonade!


Your List of Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups of fresh rose petals

  • 6 cups of water

  • 2 1/2 cups of sugar

  • Juice from 2 lemon

Step 1: Gather your rose petals

You will not be rinsing these before using them so be sure that ones you haves are free from any bugs or dirt. Place petals in a large glass jar.

Step 2: Make your syrup

Bring water to a boil, add sugar and stir until dissolved. Remove saucepan from heat and add the lemon juice. Pour syrup over the rose petals.

Step 3: Let steep

Let your rose lemonade infuse in the fridge for the next 2 or 3 days

Step 4: Strain and serve over ice

Enjoy this delicious floral drink on a hot summer's day!

I have read a lot about hibiscus flavored drinks and even heard of rose teas, but never lemonade. Was it very florally? Would elderberries be could in lemonade?

It was very florally, but we love rose so it was very enjoyable. I definitely think you could use hibiscus instead of roses in this recipe. Elderberries would need to be cooked and strained first but I think that would make a tasty lemonade 😉
