I love icebox cakes in the summer, when the thought of turning on an oven is too much to bear. This cake veers a bit from tradition, adding blackberries, pistachios, and pomegranate molasses in between layers of tea biscuits and rose water-infused whipped cream.

In small amounts, rosewater lends a subtle floral note to beverages. Rose goes particularly well with fruit, which is why we've paired it with lychee in this alcohol-free tipple. The lychee syrup is sweet, the lemon tart, and the rosewater fragrant, making for a drink that's both exotic and strangely familiar.
The key to a great Valentine's Day dessert is lightness. The lush, raspberry base is balanced beautifully with tart hibiscus, light rose sweetness and a hint of lavender at the finish. Sweet and clean with an underlying complexity, it's incredibly easy to make and the final product is a bright and beautiful pink.

As an optional crown, I whirl sugar and dried rose petals together for the prettiest in pink wineglass rim.
