Sparkling Rose Lemon Water

Ever since I returned to the Middle East, I’ve fallen (back) in love with flavours like rose, saffron and pistachio. Love is perhaps putting it mildly, I’ve probably become a tad bit obsessive.

That why I’ve been turning to sparking rose lemon water in the afternoons for a pick me up. It’s just as refreshing as lemonade (without the heaps of sugar), helps fights bloating, and most importantly, it smells amazing and makes me feel like a Persian queen.

The benefits:

  • Rose water has anti-inflammatory properties, and contains Vitamin A, B3, C, D and E
  • Lemons are a good source of Vitamin C for skin and immune health, the electrolyte potassium to aid hydration, and stimulates bile flow (to reduce bloating and help you stay regular)

  • 1 tsp. food grade rosewater
