Mint water has concentrated mint flavours – much like rose water and orange blossom water. The Middle Eastern ingredient is similar to an extract or essence, with intense and concentrated mint flavourings, making it an exciting addition to a Persian store cupboard for enhancing a mast-o-khiar yoghurt dip, or sweet drinks like a sekanjabin or doogh.
A little drop of the mint water goes a long way – and can also be used to infuse creams and cocktails with lively, fresh mint flavours. Experiment with using the mint water in mint-chocolate possets, a mint chocolate chip ice cream, and also in mint-based cocktails like a julep or mojito.
