Rosewater Honey Lemonade
Recipe Type: Beverages
Serves: 1 large pitcher
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 6 large lemons)
  • ½ cup honey
  • 9 cups water
  • ½ teaspoon rosewater*
  • *Most Indian and Middle Eastern speciality shops sell Rosewater or look in the imported food section at your grocery store.
  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat warm the honey with 1 cup of the water, stirring until the honey dissolves. You won't need to bring it to a boil, just hot enough to melt the honey.
  2. Combine the lemon juice with the remaining 8 cups of water in a large pitcher. Add the honey mixture and rosewater and stir to combine.
  3. Serve chilled over ice. Garnish with slices of lemon or strawberry, fresh lemon balm or mint, whatever tickles your fancy.
