Rose Water Lemonade – A Mediterranean Affair

Rosewater Lemonade - A Mediterranean Classic

(Foodgawked)

Rose Water or Gulab pani is not new to those who grew up in India or Mediterranean countries. This fragrant water gives you a high by just smelling it. I knew I wanted to make this drink at home when I first had it in a Mediterranean restaurant. This is not a rocket science recipe hence it was not difficult for me to recreate it at home. Rosewater Lemonade belongs to Lebanon and Palestine of the Mediterranean region however it is popular recipe in most of the Mediterranean restaurants.

If you remember I told you that one can make gazillion flavors with this basic Lemonade concentrate. Here is one of the most refreshing and fragrant Lemonade recipe. Hope you will enjoy it as much as we did.

How it tasted?

When you first hold the glass of lemonade,  you immediately get mesmerized  by the aroma of Rose Water. Your mind starts thinking quickly about the aromatic ingredient. When you take the first sip, you are transformed to a different world altogether. Even before it reaches your tummy you feel so energized and refreshing. Just the aroma of rose water gives you a high. For some it might be a hide and seek game. Try serving it to your guest. It is definitely a surprising drink.
