Frozen Lemonade with Rose Water - The Lemon Bowl

Growing up, my mom and aunts would always flavor lemonade with a splash of orange blossom or rose water. Popular in Middle Eastern cuisine, these all-natural flavor enhancers are nothing more than water steeped with either orange blossoms or rose petals.

To this day, lemonade just isn’t lemonade without a hint of orange blossom water or rose water. The floral aroma pairs perfectly with the sweet and tangy lemonade. You’ll also see these waters used frequently to flavor desserts such as baklava or even hard candies.

This Frozen Lemonade with Rose Water is extra special because today we are celebrating the beautiful and talented Catherine of Weelicious. She is getting ready to have her third baby this summer so a bunch of your favorite food bloggers got together to throw a Surprise Virtual Baby Shower in Catherine’s honor!

You probably recognize Catherine from The Chew, Food Network or one of her many incredible cookbooks. I’ve had the honor of meeting her several times in person and she is just as radiant, gorgeous and inspiring as she appears on TV. Did I mention gorgeous?

Congratulations, Catherine, to you and your growing family! I’m so excited to see photos of your new addition!!

    Frozen lemonade is always better than regular lemonade, in my opinion. I love the floral addition!

    I currently live in the Middle East and have bottles of rosewater and orange blossom water in my kitchen and bathroom. I am obsessed with rosewater lemonade, but it always seems that it tastes better when other people make it. This is a different recipe than that one that I’ve made, so I’m excited to try it. Thanks!
