Really great twist on a classic desert - tried it twice now - used orange blossom flower water from the supermarket.

Ok, I had a problem with this recipe because of the amount of orange flower water! I bought it from M & S and it was alcoholic and very strong, so 2 tablespoons in the mix just ruined it. My friends couldn't eat it!!! Maybe I just used the wrong orange flower water? In theory the rest of the recipe would work well.
