Minted Rose Water :: Trad Home Shoot

Part 2 of our Trad Home story will be featured this week- if you haven’t seen the collaboration between trad Home and Lonny Magazine, have a look. For this story we wanted to give an easy refreshing summer drink: Rose Water + Mint. For both Sunday Suppers and in our homes, we like to offer our guests a drink when they walk in the door. This allows everyone to relax and mingle for a bit before we get our lesson going. Are roses edible you might ask ? Yes! if they are organic and pesticide free – so just check with your local market or florist.

For a tiny carafe like ours we combined 2 cups of cool water, a quarter teaspoon of Rosewater, two sprigs of Mint, and a few rose petals. This can obviously be doubled or tripled depending on your vessel.

    I wonder what you could do with some soda and vodka? Or high quality gin? I’ll bet this would be amazing

    I too love using rose petals and usually put them on top of raw chocolate, divine! I will try this drink tomorrow:)

    Two of my favorite flavors together in the same water! I’ll definitely try it.

    I love mint lemonades and adding these rose petals to my drink is a fantastic idea!

    absolutely stunning! I can’t begin to tell you how much I like rose water. I added a splash of it to white chai the other day and then to a glass of water infused with lavender and rosemary. Have you ever used orange blossom water?
