  • 1 c fresh mango, diced*
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp dried rose petal

  2. Cool to room temperature. Stir in lemon juice and strain to remove the mango and rose petals.
  3. To make each drink, add 1/4 cup of the mango rose lemon syrup and 1/2 cup of water to an ice-filled glass.

Recipe Notes and Variations

  • If you don’t have dried rose petals or can’t find them, you could also use dried hibiscus flowers or fresh mint leaves. Both are equally refreshing and delicious!
  • If you are of age to drink alcohol and are in the mood for a cocktail, feel free to add a splash of tequila or rum!
  • Play with the syrup to water ratio so that you get the sweetness/flavor right for your taste buds!
