As I write this, I am looking out over the big blue sea, sparkling and endless. The sweet and spicy aromas of wild roses waft through the air, whispering to the bees, come, and they do.
The earth is buzzing and alive and I’ve been feeling its touch upon me so intensely these past few days, here in sunny Seattle. A nice little break.
The trees and plants all seemed to glow with life and I’ve been feeling so in-love with everything! Maybe that’s just what happens when we really feel where we are, which sometimes I forget to do.
It’s easy to get lost in thought, and not see the beauty that is right in front of us.
And it’s almost as if the wild roses have been trying to tell me this all along, in the only way they can, with their sweet musky scent, gently nudging me back to the present to see and smell and acknowledge – and just be here with them. Such a gift.
Making Wild Rose Petal Sangria is a lovely way to celebrate the arrival of summer and be here in the season. Plus, it just tastes sooooo good!!!
Foraging for your own rose petals is a soothing balm for the soul.
The act of getting out there in the quiet and wild, heals the heart. We all need moments of silence. We need to be with ourselves more and let our hearts feel what they feel. Even if this means sobbing next to a rose bush.
So many things distract us from this important work.
The soul’s work.
A neglected soul translates to burn out, depression, loss of purpose and meaning. Let the roses do their healing. Spend some time with their magical presence. Feel their soothing energy. They are here for you.
Collect one cup of fresh wild rose petals. Wild rose petals collected in the morning are especially fragrant, but all rose petals untreated with pesticides will work too. You can also use food grade dried petals.
Make the recipe for Wild rose petal simple syrup, letting the petals steep overnight for the most flavor. Then follow the Sangria Recipe and enjoy this refreshing, summery drink, preferably sitting outside, letting the worries of the day be carried away.
Roses are thought to heal the heart and sooth the soul.

I subbed the mint for Sweet Basil since I have a ton of it. Delish.
Can you sub regular rose petals to steep? Do you steep the petals on heat the whole 12-24 hours?
Made this last night with fresh wild rose petals and it turned out amazing. So easy and really drinkable and refreshing.
I’m so glad you enjoyed it! So enjoyable to make.
I REALLY want to try this but cannot for the life of me find Wild Rose Petals in any grocery store in Madison. I tried Woodmans, Willy Street Co-op, Whole Foods, Metcalfes, etc. and I’m not sure where else to look. Do people just go to a florist?
Hi Sara! You can use any rose petals that have not been treated or sprayed.Even just regular roses. We have wild roses growing everywhere so easy to find here. For dry rose petals, did you try the bulk section at whole foods? – or the bulk tea section? I have seen them there. Or get them on line here! Wild Rose Petals
Thank you. I’m going to see if the hubby will swing by the florist and see if they have petals that haven’t been sprayed. Otherwise Amazon for the win.
Amazon, Florists roses are treated
The pop of pink in this sangria is beautiful! I love the fresh flavors going on, I’ll have to try it sometime!
This is a perfect refreshment to serve at any outdoor party or event you are throwing !!
Very nice and original recipe, surely will try this out. Nice work!
Beautiful post, full of West Seattle love! And a gorgeous sounding sangria. I’ll definitely give this one a try when I get the chance. (Healthy roses, especially untreated, are hard to come by in Texas this time of year! **Making sad exiled-Seattle-native face** 😉
Thanks Kathryn, hope you get back to the West side soon!!
What a beautiful drink, silly question ……how do you measure the rose petal s? do you pack them in or just throw them in loosely?
A dear friend once told me you pack them very gently -like you would if you were making a fairy bed. 🙂
Rose wine, rose syrup and elderflower? Yes, yes, yes! This drink ticks all the boxes for me and contains all my favourites! It sounds so delicious! I will definitely be making this over the summer.
Oh good, glad you like it Laura!
This drink looks sooo beautiful and summery. Rose wine on the shopping list next week me thinks Sammie http://www.feastingisfun.com
