I spent some time looking for rose water in oriental shops. Right after tasting our home made version for the first time, my husband said that “it’s like drinking flowers”. 🙂
Ingredients for 1,5 liters (approx. 6 cups):
freshly pressed juice of 3 lemons
2 teaspoons of rose water
sweetener to taste (stevia, xylitol, etc.)
1,5 L or 6 cups of filtered water
Just mix the ingredients and let it cool in the fridge until chilled. Enjoy!
Remember to use organic lemons to avoid preservatives applied to the lemon peel. When adding your sweetener of choice, keep in mind that rose water gives a sweet experience in itself, so you may need less sweetener than expected.
I used stevia liquid, as I’m still experimenting with stevia liquid and powder. So far, the liquid is handy and useful in drinks, also easy to take with me, and I perefer stevia powder for baking.
