Limonada de trandafiri / Rose petals lemonade

Pai, dupa ce v-am aratat trandafirii, sa va arat si ce limonada delicioasa am facut din ei. Eu ii spun limonada insa poate sa fie la fel de bine suc. Am plecat de la ideea de a face sirop de trandafiri si pe parcurs m-am schimbat, datorita cantitatii mari de zahar ce imi trebuia. Se mai intampla si la case mai mari. Insa rezultatul m-a surprins chiar si pe mine. Asa parfum si culoare frumoasa, si atat de simplu de facut. Gata cu vorba, sa trecem la fapte.


Pentru a face limonada aveti nevoie de petale de trandafiri, de preferat sa fie si rosii ca sa va iasa culoarea frumoasa. Si neaparat parfumati. Eu nu am numarat cate flori am cules, insa era cam jumatate de sacosa. Dupa ce le-am curatat aveam cam doua castroane mari pline cu petale.


Am spalat petalele, apoi le-am frecat bine cu doua cani zahar. Doamne, ce frumos mirosea la mine in bucatarie, de imi venea sa le mananc. Apoi am pus petalele cu zaharul intr-un borcan de 4 litri, am adaugat zeama de la 2 lamai si am umplut borcanul cu apa. Apoi i-am pus capacul si l-am bagat la frigider. Timp de 4 zile am asteptat, uitandu-ma cum se coloreaza frumos, si amestecand o data pe zi. 
Dupa cele 4 zile de chin si asteptare, l-am scos, am strecurat petalele, le-am stors bine intr-un tifon si l-am pus in sticle la rece. 
Este un adevarat deliciu racoritor si parfumat. Il puteti servi cu gheata, lamaie, cateva frunze de menta proaspata, sau simplu. 



Recipe in English
Well, after I showed you my roses, now let me show you what a delicious lemonade I made ​​with them . It all started with the idea of ​​making roses syrup , but I've changed my mind due to the large amount of sugar that was needed. But the result was  a totally surprise, even for me. Such a beautiful fragrance and color, and so simple to make. Enough talking, let's get down to the recipe.

 In order to make the lemonade you're going to  need rose petals,  preferably red ones, so you'll have a nice color and perfume. I have not counted how many flowers I picked, but it was about half a bag. It resulted in about two large bowls filled with rose petals. I washed them, then I added 2 cups of sugar, and mixed and rubbed the petals with it. I added the juice of 2 lemons and about 4 liters of water. I put it in the refrigerator and for four days I waited, stirring once a day with a spatula. After the four days, you squeeze the petals out and you can put it in  bottles. It keeps well in the refrigerator for few days. You can serve it with ice cubes, few slices of lemon, or some fresh mint leaves. It's refreshing and delicious.


Bon appetit!
