- 3 cups deeply scented and colored rose petals
- 4 tbs. sugar
- 1 quart sparkling water
- 1 lemon
- 1 bottle chilled fruity white wine
Put 3 cups of deeply scented and colored rose petals in a mixing bowl and sprinkle 4 tbs of sugar over them. Using the bottom of a glass, slightly crush together the roses and sugar. Add a quart bottle of sparkling water and the juice of the lemon. Chill for 3 to 4 hours to let the flavors steep together.
To serve, strain off the liquid into a glass punch bowl. Add white wine, and float rose petal ice cubes in the punch just before serving.
