There’s no doubt about it, Fentimans’ Rose Lemonade is an ideal drink for Valentine’s Day. Not only is it tasty it’s also versatile and has a very special ingredient that will help make the special day even more beautiful.
The very special ingredient in Fentimans’ Rose Lemonade is Otto rose oil which comes from the Rose Valley in Kazanlak, Bulgaria. Otto oil is highly coveted and precious due to its renowned properties in helping rejuvenate mature skin. The oil is obtained from a steam distillation process using Rosa damascena petals. To give you some idea as to why it’s so rare – 4,000kg of flowers are needed to produce 1kg of the oil.
So, if you’re partner is bold enough to ask “why are we having lemonade?”, imagine the reaction when you say it contains one of the most prized natural resources on earth!
To make the Rose Lemonade, Fentimans blends a small amount of this oil with lemon juice to produce the Rose Lemonade’s distinct flavour. The harvesting of the rose petals occurs in a narrow window of time. It happens just once a year, and the petals must be picked by hand at sunrise when they are at their most fragrant. To ensure the highest quality, the oil must be extracted within hours of its picking. Such devotion to ingredients and flavour makes Fentimans Rose Lemonade the perfect way to treat loved ones this Valentine’s Day.
Add even more Zing to Fentimans Rose Lemonade on Valentine’s Day
For a refreshing alternative to the traditional glass of bubbly, Fentimans suggests giving Prosecco an upgrade with the Rose Spritz cocktail. This combines two classic aphrodisiacs resulting in an aromatic and effervescent drink. All you need to do to make it is simply top up a glass of Prosecco with Fentimans Rose Lemonade and for the pièce de résistance garnish it with strawberries.
For gin lovers, the Hendricks and Rose, a combination of Hendricks Gin, Rose Lemonade and Elderflower syrup, garnished with cucumber is the perfect pre-dinner treat.
