Homemade Rose Petal Soda

Simple syrup flavored with fresh rose petals makes a delicate base for homemade rose petal soda.

I've been playing around making my own fruit and edible flower syrups lately to use in homemade soda.

I've made violet, blackberry and strawberry syrup/soda already (loved all three) and this week I tried using fresh pink rose petals.

This would be a great "girly" beverage to serve for a bridal or baby shower....

Far healthier than store bought soda, you can control the amount of syrup you use in each glass. I found this syrup recipe made about 8 glasses of soda. 

And it's the ultimate refreshing warm weather drink.


Homemade Rose Petal Soda

 What you Need |

For the Simple Syrup

2 Cups fresh picked rose petals
2 Cups water
2 Cups sugar (or sweetener of choice)

For the Soda

Rose simple syrup
Club soda
Fresh rose petals for garnish
Fresh mint leaves for garnish

What you Do |

Combine the rose petals, water and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

The color will leach out of the petals and into the liquid. Remove from heat and strain out the rose petals.

Let cool a bit and then pour your syrup into sterilized mason jars and refrigerate until chilled.

When your syrup is chilled, spoon several Tablespoons of the syrup into a glass and then fill with club soda, adding more syrup to taste if necessary. 

Garnish with a few rose petals and a sprig of fresh mint.
