       Hi there! With spring beginning yesterday (can I get an amen?!), I thought it apt to share a new take on my basic ol' almond milk. I use almond milk every day in smoothies and in my coffee - but it can get a little dull every now and then to be so monotonous. That being said, I set out to create a fresh flavor with almond milk by making the additions of a little rose water, vanilla, and honey! It's simple, obviously floral, and slightly sweet - just what I needed to switch things up. Get the full recipe below!

To Drink / Rosewater Sparkling Lemonade

 

     Good morning! A few weeks back, I got to try out Fentiman's Rose Lemonade for the first time in Springfield, MO, and it was so good that I had to recreate it. Since I made this, I've been drinking it non-stop (which is ok, because I don't add any sweetener to my lemonade; to me it just doesn't need it)! Bailey has tried it, but she doesn't like sparkling water yet, so I only get grimaces of course. However, for those of you that like bubbles, lemonade, and rosewater anything, this recipe is right up your alley! Get the how-to below!

Ingredients:

- 3 cups of cold water

- 1 can of lime or lemon La Croix

- 2 lemons to juice

- 2 tsp. of rosewater

Directions:

1. Juice your lemons!

2. Add your water to a pitcher with ice, then pour in your La Croix, lemon juice, and rose water.

3. Stir and enjoy (preferably in a mason jar glass)! :)

To Make / Rosewater Strawberry Waffles

2. Pour your batter into your greased waffle iron, and cook for about 4 minutes, then flip and cook for another four minutes. Top with greek yogurt (pictured here) or whatever you like, and enjoy!

For Design / Rosewater

 

     Good morning! For this months design appreciation, I looked to a pretty bottle of rosewater that I had acquired for a waffle recipe (coming soon!). It's apothecary inspired packaging is so inspiring!  

       The amber glass bottle, combined with the deco fonts, gives off the look of the Great Gatsby era. 

       Also, I must say that the pink color way is spot on for rosewater. I have a thing for themed packaging!  

     Thanks for reading, and have an awesome weekend!
