1. In a bowl, combine 2 cups strawberries and mint leaves. Using a muddler (or even the end of a rolling pin), gently push the strawberries down until they release their juices and become mashed. Strain the mix into a large pitcher. Add the orange juice, lemon juice, and vodka, if using. Stir in the rose petals and remaining 1/2 cup sliced strawberries. Serve or chill until ready to serve. 2. To serve, pour over ice and top with sparkling water. Garnish as desired with fresh mint, strawberries, and rose petals. Enjoy!
If fresh roses are not available or you prefer to not use them, they can simply be omitted from the recipe.
