Squeeze the water from the gelatine and add it to the milk mixture, stir very well until the gelatine fully dissolves. 

Now add the water blossom water into the prepared milk and cream mixture.

Pour the liquid into moulds, glasses or even champagne flutes and allow to set in the fridge for a minimum of 8 hours.

Remove the mould from the water  and place a plate on top. Turn the mould upside down and allow the panna cotta to fall from the mould.
