drink: rose water lemonade

IMG_7696 i recently went to a little french restaurant in longmont with my mom while she was visiting. frankly, i was just excited to be eating out, to be eating french food, and an eclair for that matter! rarity’s since my move here. i ordered rose lemonade and i immediately became obsessed. i love anything i can recreate at home easily and i am a fanatic for the floral edible goodness of rose water. it is a bit perfumy, but i find it refreshing and delightful. Reminds me of my trip to morocco!!

this recipe makes two glasses. double, triple, etc for more!

what you need:

1/2 c simple syrup (boil 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water together in a sauce pan until the sugar has dissolved)

1-2 lemons-juice and a little zest

2 tsp of rose water (mine is more like an extract, you can find cortas rose water in middle eastern markets, and perhaps the regular market)

some mint and basil for color and flavor

2 cups of water


combine all ingredients in a pitcher and stir. poor over ice and garnish with lemon and mint. for a sparkling version, add some pellegrino!
