February Low Carb Cocktail: Rose & Elderflower Love Potion

I love the month of February. I love the hearts, the colors, the feeling of ~ love ~ in the air. The combination of Valentine’s Day and Galentine’s Day is probably one of my favorite holidays of the year (aside from Halloween of course). I love showering those I care about in my love annually. This year, I created the most romantic low carb drink to share with your loved ones, the Rose & Elderflower Love Potion.

I used Suntory’s Roku Gin, a Japanese Craft Gin with flowery botanicals from my local Top Shelf Wine & Spirits, as well as the Belvoir Fruit Farms Elderflower & Rose Cordial.

Make you own rose petal ice cubes by adding washed petals to and ice tray and freezing boiled distilled water for a clear finish. If you don’t care if they are crystal clear or if you’re just feeling lazy, regular water will also work.


Serves 1



  1. Combine gin, cordial, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker with ice + shake it up.
  2. Strain into a coupe glass over a few rose petal ice cubes
  3. Top with lemon sparkling water + enjoy!
