1/2 cup mint leaves, plus more to garnish
4 tablespoons lime juice, or more to taste
1 cup dried rosebuds (available at specialty food shops)

Strain and return liquid to saucepan. Remove from heat. Stir in fresh lime juice, crushed rosebuds and rose water. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to a week.

Serving Suggestions
