With Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought a girly, pink mocktail would be fun to try. After I took a sip, I thought it was exactly that – a girly, sweet drink that seemed made for Valentine’s Day! It’s sweet, floral taste, paired with with a little tartness from the lemon is just perfect! (I probably would add even a little extra lemon juice to mine next time – I love a good tart lemon taste, especially when paired with raspberries!)
Raspberry Rose Mocktail
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons raspberry syrup (recipe below)
2-3 drops rose water
Add ice to glass and fill about 2/3 full with sparkling water. Stir together lemon juice, raspberry syrup and rose water. Add to glass. Top off with lemon-lime soda. Garnish with rose petals and raspberries if desired.
1/2 cup raspberries
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
Place sugar and water in a saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Add raspberries and mash them up good! Strain mixture.
