Recipe by Southern Polar Bear
Your little Fairy will love serving this enchanting drink at her next midsummer night's garden party. It is also a refreahing little treat for her after a long day of chasing drangonflies and butterflies by the pond. This recipe is from my daughter's favorite Flower Fairies book, Sweet Pea's Garden. This recipe does not include freezing time for the ice cubes.
- 12 rose petals (or other edible flowers)
- 1⁄4 cup fresh raspberry
- 1⁄8 cup granulated sugar
- 4 cups orange juice
- 4 cups cranberry juice
- 1 orange, cut into triangles
