Word Of The Day: Rosewater

Rosewater? Sounds girly. I'm just going to stick a whole rose in this cocktail and see where this date takes me. No watering down over here.

Rosewater is the by-product of distilling rose petals and water for perfume. It's useful for adding a subtle (yes, subtle) floral fragrance in baking and cocktails and, along with orange blossom water, is used frequently in Middle Eastern and South Asian desserts. Use rosewater, not whole roses.
