How To Make

  • 1
    In a small saucepan, cook down rose petals with water and sugar until all the color of the petals bleed into the water. In a pitcher or serving jug, pour enough water to steep a tea bag. Set aside. Meanwhile, juice and strain two oranges. Add juice to pitcher with tea. Strain rose water & let cool. Once completely cool, add to pitcher. Remove the tea bag and store in a cool place until ready to serve. Decorative Note: Set aside a few rose petals. Dip in orange juice and then sugar for candied petals. Add to drink afterwards for garnish.
