Honey Rose Wine


Yields approximately 2 cups

Damiana is an herb that originates from Mexico and is commonly used to improve digestion, relax the nervous system, boost reproductive energy and uplift spirits. Harvest rose petals when the flowers are blooming—making sure to only harvest from plants where no pesticides were used in cultivation. Store-bought fresh flowers almost always have a dubious background, so it’s best to source fresh flowers from local farmers, and to procure dried flowers and herbs from bulk tea and spice markets or from reputable herb companies such as Mountain Rose Herbs.


Honey Rose Wine


For 1 Batch(es)


  • 1 ounces dried damiana leaves
  • ounces dried organic rose petals
  • 1 vanilla bean pod, slit lengthwise
  • 2 cups mead, plus more to cover

Honey Rose Wine Directions

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a clean, quart-size mason jar.
  2. Add more mead to completely cover dry matter if necessary.
  3. Gently shake the contents every so often for 48 hours.
  4. Follow the straining method for juniper wine.
  5. Honey rose wine should be consumed within 2 weeks or fortified with a shot of your spirit of choice (I like brandy) for a longer shelf life.
  6. Serve in 2- to 4-ounce portions.
