Rosy Love Potion

by Leanne Vogel (Healthful Pursuit) on February 9, 2011

Kevin gets back from his trip to the UK tomorrow.

First thing I plan on doing is giving him a big hug and kiss [common' we're all adults here!].

Next, I’ll tell him I’ve renamed myself to Rosy Love Potion.

Okay, maybe that’s a bit out there.

But you have to agree it would make for a fantastic name if I were a Bond Girl.

Alas, I guess the only Rosy Love Potion I’ll have in my life is out of a cup.

[served with dipped rose shortbread cookies. Or better yet, dipped rose shortbread cookies AND chocolate truffle cookies. I'm convinced this will be the best Valentine's Day ever.]

Rosy Love Potion is hitting the road this month. Be sure to spot her over at Naomi’s Go Ahead Honey It’s Gluten Free event. The theme this month: Love Potions and Charmed Foods. I think Rosy will fit right in.

Rosy Love Potion

Vegan, Gluten free, Dairy free

Love is in the air no matter how this potion is enjoyed – hot like tea, at room temperature, or on ice.

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp rose buds – Make sure to use edible rose buds to avoid pesticides. You can find them at many health food or gourmet shops.
  • 2 tbsp raw agave nectar or honey
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 4 cups [1 liter] of hot water

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients in a glass bowl, 1 liter mason jar, or glass pitcher. Allow to steep for 10 minutes
  2. Place a large bowl in the sink and strain the buds and lemon pieces out of the original bowl.
  3. Pour into glasses and serve

Makes 4 cups

If you were a Bond Girl, what name would you create for yourself?

Haha thank you, Gwen! I had a lot of fun with it. As soon as I thought for the name of this recipe I couldn’t help but think I was naming a Bond Girl, so I just went with it.

Gorgeous photos! I love anything rose flavoured. The Persians use rose to warm the body and soothe the heart. I keep a bottle of rose water on hand to splash in my herb tea when I need a little rosy lift.

Bond girl? What? Well I would say “Love Potioned”?

Mmm Rosy Love Potion! I love this for lots of reasons. It sounds wonderful. And I love that you posted this on February 9th cuz that’s my birthday! And since my name is Alaina Rose, people often call me Rosie! And I’m known for making love potions with medicinal herbs! Very synchronistic!
