ROSE LATTE W/ ICE

Growing up any rose drinks during spring/summers was my mom’s go to. She’d make mocktails/sherbets at home with rose during summers coz its cooling for the body in the excessive heat. I decided to incorporate the love I have for roses in my fave fave drink LATTE IFKYK 😅🙈 Sharing step by steps below.

INGREDIENTS: (serves 1)

  • 175ml-200ml cold organic regular whole milk (you can also use any plant milk or other milk of your choice. I haven’t tested the recipe except with regular whole milk)
  • 1 tbsp dried rose petals or 1 tsp rose petal powder; this one is my fave
  • 30 ml freshly brewed espresso (I have Breville coffee machine at home that I use to brew. I typically do ‘double shot’ and medium-dark roast)
  • Ice cubes – optional
  • Vanilla extract – optional
  • Sugar syrup – optional

METHOD:

  • Grind the rose petals in a food chopper. The finer the texture the better. I didn’t have any rose petals powder at hand when I tested the recipe. (Skip this step if you are using rose petals powder)
  • In the same blender jar – add milk (add vanilla extract & sugar syrup along with milk – This is completely optional). Blend until it is frothy. It takes about 20-30 seconds in Nutribullet.
  • Lets assemble –
    • In a glass – add ice cubes
    • Pour rose milk
    • Pour expresso
    • Use a straw or spoon to stir
    • Dust dry rose petals or rose petals powder on top.
  • Serve cold w/ your preferred snacks

Bon Appetit 🎉🎉
