These pretty pink-tinged cocktails with rose-dappled ice cubes are the perfect drinks to share with your loved one on Valentine's Day, or to enjoy at a bridal shower or bachelorette party. The perfect suga-free cocktail for any special occasion!

The floral ice cubes add an extra pretty element to this low-carb drink, but if you haven’t made any ahead of time, you could simply use regular ice cubes and mix in some fresh or dried petals to the drink to serve.

We used gin to make these sugar-free cocktails but you can skip the alcohol or add and extra squeeze of lemon juice.

  2. You can make rose water at home or use ready made rose water. To make the rose water, add the about 1 tablespoon of rose petals and 1/3 cup water to a small saucepan. Cover, and bring to the boil. Reduce to the lowest temperature, and simmer, covered, around 5-10 minutes or until the colour of the rose petals have faded.
  3. Cool completely. Strain through a nut bag or fine mesh sieve. Store in the refrigerator up to 3 weeks.
