This rose infused lemonade will make you feel pampered!
I have never been one of those women that was all about my image or the flowery type. For example, rose water or oil is said to be wonderful for a woman’s skin. That’s why this rose infused lemonade is so awesome! I have met a few women who have made their own rose oil or rose water simply for the purpose of keeping their skin young and healthy.
I wish I could say I’m one of those women. That sounds like it could really be fun, not to mention, I wouldn’t mind boosting my skin health. However, my extra time is usually spent doing a plethora of other things and making rose water or oil is not the first thing that comes to my mind.
On to the flowers. Don’t get me wrong, I love flowers but for a present, I more prefer an experience than a flower. Or food, I definitely would like food more than flowers. To me, with my “must save money” brain, I feel that spending so much on flowers that are impossible to keep alive very long is just a waste. I think they’re beautiful and a wonderful/thoughtful gesture but if I had the choice, I wouldn’t choose flowers.
So, here I am, a woman without random flowers sitting around and no time to make my own rose water/oil. Thankfully, when I find something I would still like to try, I find a way to make it easier and cheaper for women like me. Natural rose water is inexpensive and is much easier to buy already made than having to wait to make your own. In fact, I found out that most places carry it. Since I had no clue to even look for it until recently, I was pretty jazzed by the fact that it was so easy to find.
This natural rose infused lemonade doesn’t pack that overwhelming sweet and thick taste that most processed lemonades do. In fact, it’s quite the relaxing drink that makes having a sweet drink not so unhealthy.
This rose infused lemonade isn’t just for summer!

Food is my love language. But so is saving money. So I like to combine the two a lot and make thrifty make ahead and freeze meals to save time. Because life is busy, and freezer meals can come to the rescue for all of us. And yes, they actually CAN taste good. Read more...
