Rose Lemonade...a ruby colored, rose flavored lemonade!!!

I'm so happy to share my very first Drink/Juice recipe on 'MED' , short for Manju's Eating Delights ;-) !!

This is a really quick and simple lemonade drink...Rose lemonade, sounds familiar or new? ;-)
Well Manish just loves rose flavored drinks (Rose milk, Ruhafza etc) and he has to always grab a bottle of Rose syrup that we get in our Indian stores and he makes the drink himself.
According to his mom when he was a little boy, he would only drink his milk if it was pink...LOL.....thank god he doesn't want Pink milk anymore ;-P

Rose syrup is just a really really sweet Rose water and sugar concentrate. Smells and tastes like Roses I must say ! The syrup is red colored, that's how this lemonade looks red. Rose syrup can also be used for flavoring or topping as a sauce over several other desserts, like Icecreams,Cheesecake, Cake, Puddings etc.
But , I,  on the other hand, hate anything Rose flavored , but I do love all kinds of lemonade...
It was my sister-in-law who suggested to add some lemon juice in the drink. And it definitely did do wonders to the taste. It definitely tasted like a Rose flavored lemonade. Hey, I'm not complaining anymore!

Even my little guy gulped down half a glass , half of it dripping down his chweeeet little chin!!
The beautiful red color and flavor of rosy lemonade makes this a 'beautiful' and refreshing drink for any warm or windy day...Can you see through the drink, cool eh? ;-)
This is not even a recipe. Even a child could prepare this drink. The quantity of Rose Syrup you add totally depends on your taste preference.

Rose Lemonade
You'll need
Water - 4 glasses (use the same glass you would serve the drink in)
Rose Syrup - 3-4 tablespoons (use more if you prefer a stronger rose flavor)
Freshly squeezed lemon juice - 2 lemons (use more or less lemon juice as per taste preference)
Ice - as required
Fresh Lemon slices - for garnish

Directions
Just mix everything together and serve chilled!!! Easy peezy ;-)
Garnish your glass with Lemon slices if you wish.
(If using Rose Water, add 2-3tablespoon Rose water + 2-3 tblsp Sugar and make your own concentrate)
The Rose syrup is already sweet, so you need not add any sugar unless necessary. All the ice I added melted by the time I took these snaps...But you go ahead and add as much ice as you want.

Or mayb you could try blending the ice with the rose syrup+lemon juice and create a Rosy-Lemony Icee....hmmmm sounds interesting? Maybe I will try that next time!

Enjoy it however you want. Its definitely a refreshing and pretty looking drink, don't you think?  :-)
