A simple Rose Tincture that opens the heart, quiets the mind and soothes the soul. Calming and uplifting it aids in overall wellbeing, balancing all 3 doshas.

Use in water, as a healing tincture, or to flavor sparkling water, champagne, hot tea, or cocktails.

Ingredients

Place dried rose petals in the jar.

Pour boiling water over the petals and stir to get all the petals moistened.  

Let sit 5 minutes covered with the lid.

Add honey and brandy to the softened petals.  

Put the lid on the jar and shake until all ingredients are well mixed.

Leave jar on the counter at room temperature for at least 24 hours (up to 6 weeks).

Shake often as agitation will infuse the rose flavor into the honied brandy.

Strain rose petals out and store the elixir in a corked glass jar.  ( Or keep it in the pint jar) 

(**Add the brandied petals to dessert – shortbread cookies, muffins, custard, over icecream…..)

**I like to use XO (literally means extra old) Brandy but any will do.

**Also I recommend using a lighter honey as the darker honey’s can over power the rose flavor.

I have made it with added flavors like cardamom pods, ginger, vanilla…etc.  But I find them to diminish the rose flavor.

Strain rose petals out,  and store the rose elixir in a sealed glass jar.

This will keep 6-12 months. Refigerate for longer shelf life.

Notes

Save and add the brandied rose petals to dessert – shortbread cookies, muffins, custard, over icecream.

You may substitue agave for the honey– but Tonia believes that honey is part of the magic.

Try to use XO (literally means extra old) Brandy, but any will do.

Use a lighter honey as darker honey can over power the rose flavor.

Add flavors like cardamom pods, ginger, vanilla…etc, but they may diminish the rose flavor.

Lastly, if you do not use alcohol, consider infusing just the honey with rose petals, for Rose-scented Honey.
