The other interesting thing about this recipe? It requires a stop at the florist instead of the grocery store. Pick out a bunch of beautiful pink or red roses and peel the petals from the flower. Rinse the petals in some cold water. Add them to a large pot with enough distilled water to cover the petals. Heat at medium heat and cover with a lid. Leave on the stove to cook until the petals lose their color.
Drain the water and serve in glasses with ice, and a few rinsed petals for garnish. If you’re making it ahead of time, make sure to store in a cool place!
Serve with pride – look how delicate and fancy!
