two handfull of fragrant rose petals (untreated)

3 tbs. rapeseed oil
1 tbs. lemon juice
1 tsp. cane sugar
coarse sea salt
1 pinch of cayenne pepper

27°c on november 12th !
the fön weather makes all of us lunatic i guess …

i’d already buried the recipes when i stuffed the t-shirts and shorts into the back row of my wardrobe …

but now the roses are still in bloom
and i can’t help mulling over this summer’s favourite drink

japan lillet

made up of
2 cl koshino kirayuki sake
2 cl lillet blanc
2 cl lychee juice
1 cl rose syrup (homemade but monin alo offers it)

shaken and strained over ice cubes and rose petals

or on a hot summer day when the sun goes down …

enjoy!
