Orange & Rosewater Sparkle

December 27th, 2018 Drink of the Week

This drink has a simple base but the addition of rosewater makes it just a little bit fancy! Be careful not to add too much rosewater or it’ll end up tasting like perfume. To ‘muddle’ the mint leaves & release the aroma slap them together between the palms of your hands or smash them a little with a pestle or the back of a spoon.


2 cups orange juice (I juiced 4 oranges)
2 cups soda water
1/4 cup mint leaves
1/2 tsp rosewater


Muddle the mint leaves and put them in a serving jug.
Add the orange juice, soda water and rosewater.
Mix together.
Pour into glasses (straining the liquid through a mini sieve if need be).
Add ice if you like.
