Fleur Pink Lemon Rickey
Inspired by the traditional Raspberry Lime Rickey, our version uses lemon instead of lime — it’s lightly perfumed, pleasantly tart, and a gorgeous color!
Juice of 1 lemon, seeds removed
2 tablespoons Fleur Spice Syrup (recipe below)
Curl of lemon peel
Put the juice of 1 lemon into a 16- to 20-ounce glass. Add 2 tablespoons Fleur Spice Syrup. Fill glass about halfway with ice. Pour in plain seltzer to fill the glass, stirring as you pour. Taste to make sure that the sweet-tart ratio is to your liking.
You might top the rickey with a couple of rose petals and a thin slice of lemon for a fancy presentation.
Fleur Spice Syrup for Drinks & Desserts:
Put the sugar, water, and Fleur Spice in a heavy, pot. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring gently to dissolve sugar. Boil for 1 minute, remove pan from heat, stir in rose water. Let the syrup cool to room temp (steeping even over night is fine). Strain into a clean jar or bottle.
