Homemade natural pink rose drink is a cooling drink on hot summer days. It’s scented with rosewater and naturally colored with beetroot.
Ingredients For 1 Glass:
- 300ml water
- 1 tbsp rosewater
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- optional: 1/8 – 1/4 tsp beetroot powder or some drops of homemade raw beetroot juice
Combine all ingredients, and stir until the sugar and beetroot powder is dissolved.
I came up with the rosewater cordial recipe searching for a natural, quick and easy cooling drink. According to Ayurveda, roses have a cooling effect – perfect for hot summer days! 😀 Because I’d so much beetroot powder left over – which I mainly bought to try out natural makeup recipes 😉 – I used it to naturally dye the rosewater drink a pretty pink. Beetroot is said to be health-promoting – but if you don’t have or want beetroot in your drink, just omit it. Now enjoy the cooling rose drink in the summer sun!
