Bright and floral, the orange rosewater sparkler is made with fresh-squeezed orange, muddled mint, and rosewater.

Note: To truly get just a couple of drops of rosewater, pour it from a spoon rather than the bottle. You'll have more control and you just need a little. If you don't have a muddler, use the handle of a wooden spoon.
