Rose Petal Soda Pop Recipe

Choose red or dark pink petals for a pleasantly pink pop. The delicate flavor of pear – another member of the rose family – is a perfect complement to the headier rose aroma. If pear juice is unavailable, substitute white grape juice.

2 cups fresh rose petals
11/4 cups white sugar
23/4 cups pear juice
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 quarts water, divided
1/2 cup rose water
1/8 teaspoon yeast plus 1/4 cup water

Simmer together rose petals, sugar, pear juice, lemon juice and 1 quart water for 15 minutes. Strain, squeezing as much liquid as possible from the petals. Discard petals. Mix in rose water and remaining 3 quarts water. Proceed with steps 4 through 7 of the Tonic Root Beer Recipe. Makes nine 16-ounce bottles.
