Cocktails anyone??

Rose Lemon Spritzer | halfbakedharvest.com @hbharvest

Oh but first, Happy Valentine’s Day!

On Friday, I had the sudden urge to make you all a Valentine’s Day drink. One that I could post today that would be quick and simple, and one that you could all make tonight. You see, I’ve been dying to make a flora cocktail. They are so cute, light, simple, quick and totally refreshing. Perfection! If you’ve never used rose water before, don’t be afraid of it. Rosewater only adds a subtle floral flavor, nothing overpowering. It’s also a really great addition to sweet baked goods, puddings and drinks! If you’re having trouble finding it, I like to buy this rose water on Amazon.

Rose water also gives me an excuse to buy fresh roses and then put them into my food… which makes me SO happy! 🙂

If you’re really not into the whole rose water idea, or don’t have any on hand, you can simply omit it from the drink. You’ll then end up with a yummy lemon spritzer. Which is still healthy and refreshing, but the light pink shade that the rose water gives off makes it perfect for Valentine’s Day…or really any day you just need a cute, refreshing drink with bubbles! You can also omit the vodka and make this as a mocktail too!

And that’s all from me today. Hope you all have a great day filled with pancakespasta (and then maybe more pasta), chocolate… times two, and rose lemon spritzers! 🙂

    This is so delicious and refreshing on a warm afternoon. I did not have rose water on hand, but I had orange blossom water and it worked out just fine! Thanks.

  2. This looks amazing! Cannot wait to try! Where are the pretty glasses from? I love them! Thanks for always coming up with something new and refreshing 🙂

  3. 1 star
    I love the concept but this is way way too rosy. 2 tablespoons would be just enough for a whole pitcher of this drink, not for just one.

    1. Hi Vanessa! I am sorry that it was too much for you. I hope you try this again with less rose! xTieghan

  4. I made this with gin and it was absolutely delicious. You really do need the pomegranate for the color. I didn’t have any, so it came out between lemon juice and honey colored. But, tasty nonetheless. Thank you.

  5. Hey! I’m hosting a bridal shower and I think this is a perfect punch bowl drink! Do you have any bulk measurement recommendations?

    1. Hey Sophie! Below is the recipe that will serve 4-6. If you want to serve more like 8-10, just double the below measurements. hope the drink is a hit! 🙂

      1/4 cup rose water * optional
      1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
      1 cup vodka
      4-6 tablespoon honey or to taste (use agave if vegan)
      a few drops of blood orange or pomegranate juice for color (optional)
      3 cups sparkling water or more to taste Coupons
      fresh roses for garnish (optional)

    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress
    on a number of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a
    way I can import all my wordpress posts into
    it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  9. Nice response in return of this query with solid arguments and describing everything on the topic of that.

  10. Wow! In the end I gott a weeb site from whwre I bbe capable oof really obtain valuable data concerning

  11. May I just say what a relief to discover
    someone that truly knows what they’re talking about on the net.
    You actually understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.

    A lot more people really need to read this and understand
    this side of the story. I can’t believe you’re not more popular
    given that you certainly possess the gift.

  12. This looks so cute and delicious! I’ve been dying to try rose water in something but couldn’t find it so I’m so glad you posted where to get it and what kind- thank you! All summer long I drank lavender lemonade which is just like normal lemonade but with a lavender simple syrup for the sugary part by boiling then straining out the lavender- I bet this is equally as delicious and I can’t wait!

  13. These are so pretty, such a great rosy shade of pink and so perfect for Valentine’s Day! Love your blog and all of the creative, tasty looking recipes you post 🙂
