Ingredients
  • 100g granulated sugar
  • 2tbsp Asda Dried Rose Petals
  • Juice 1/2 lemon
  • 100g rasperries
  • 1-1.5L Asda Eden Falls Sparkling Mineral Water
  • Mint sprigs to serve
Method
  • Put the sugar, rose petals and lemon juice in a small saucepan with 100ml water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2-3 mins until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and allow to steep for 20-30 mins until the syrup has cooled. Pour it through a sieve and discard the rose petals.

  • To make the spritz, pour the syrup into a large jug, add the raspberries and crush slightly with a fork. Half-fill the jug with ice and pour over the sparkling water. Serve immediately garnished with mint sprigs.
