Simple Syrup Recipe for Making 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....



Homemade Rose Soda

For the Simple Syrup

Ingredients

2 Cups fresh picked rose petals
2 Cups water
2 Cups sugar (you can substitute honey or the sugar substitute of your choice)
Club soda

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.



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. It's the ultimate refreshing warm weather drink.
