Whether you’re participating in Dry January or just trying to be a little healthier, I have the tastiest mocktail for a luxurious evening at home or a night with the girls: the Elderflower Rose Mocktail. I personally am participating in Dry January this year and it’s already been a struggle – ha! But I honestly feel like it’s hard at first simply because we get in the habit of a glass of wine with dinner or a pour of bourbon while watching Succession (just me?). But to tell you the truth, abstaining from alcohol has been a great way for me to jumpstart the healthy habits I’m aiming to make this year.
Obviously this mocktail can be made a cocktail pretty easily. I would suggest adding gin or vodka. And I’m sure I will once January is over. Maybe for Valentine’s Day? Oh and pro tip: if you don’t have enough time to freeze the rose petals inside the ice cube, simply remove ice cube from tray, place rose petals strategically, and add a touch of water. Place the ice cube back in its place and it back in the freezer. In about 5 minutes you’ll have some rose ice cubes!
