Rose Lemonade

This beautiful, pink rose lemonade recipe is so pretty, and delicious too.

Perfect as a baby shower or bridal shower alcoholic free drink, it’s easy to make and the result is divine. 

This also looks amazing served in a jug for guests, so you can easily increase the quantities if required.

If you love floral notes, I’d also suggest my lavender lemonade, which is a crowd favourite.

A note on sweeteners: I try to keep my recipes as low in artificial sugar as possible.

For this recipe I used Monk Fruit sweetener, which is a low carb, keto friendly 1:1 sugar replacement. Stevia would also work well in this recipe. Another favourite of mine is organic raw honey or homemade date syrup. Keep in mind the colour with both of these options – they may change the final colour of the rose lemonade.

This rose lemonade recipe looks beautiful served on a tray with some extra petals for garnish. If you are making this in advance, prepare the rose syrup and lemon juice and leave in the fridge. Then when your guests arrive, assemble the drink and add the sparkling water. If you are making in a jug, you can place the rose syrup and lemon juice in the bottom of the jug, then top with sparkling water and ice when you are ready to serve.

  • You can choose your preferred sweetener for this recipe. I used monk fruit sweetener and it worked perfectly. Other options are Stevia, coconut sugar or brown sugar. Be wary when using dark sugars/sweeteners as it will alter the final colour of the drink.
