Rose lemonade

Yes, you read right. A lemonade made of roses and not just from any rose bush. This is a special rose that is edible. The lemonade was given to my mother in law by a neighbour who is an expert in making it. My MIL is now set on growing such bushes so that we can all enjoy it!

I cannot describe the lovely taste and can't wait to make it ourselves!

I know I promised crochet rings tutorials but spent the weekend days on the beach having fun with the kids. In the late night hours I removed unwanted links to my posts. Still bitter about that and sorry if I filled your readers with my old posts!!
Talk to you tomorrow!

This looks so yummy! I love to drink tea especially unusually tea. Can you tell us how you make it or how to get the special rose that is edible? Love to try this.

Have a great day!

sounds like the perfect cooling drink for these warm days!

And I didn't notice any posts filling my reader because I've been "busy" ignoring the computer, hee hee!

Oh wow, is that made of rosehip? I know that that's full of vitamins and the taste is oh so yummy! Love the way how you dressed your glass Maya!

Vanessa and Ira: I don't know the exact name of the rose. I'll update this post when I learn its name and the correct measures.
Rose petals are added into a jar (don't know how much exactly) along with sugar and lemon acid. It has to be left for a while before actually drunk.

Did you ever figure out how to make it? I would love to make some for us.

BTW, all roses are edible, unless they have been sprayed.
