Line a baking tray with baking paper. Heat the oven to 110C. Whisk egg whites in a large clean bowl or in a mixer. When eggs are fluffy, add castor sugar a tablespoon at a time while beating. When the mixture is shiny and holds its shape, add the rosewater. Spoon dollops of meringue onto the tray. Put a few drops of red colouring in a saucer. Dip a skewer into the colouring and use to make little stripes around the meringues as you wish. Bake 40-50 minutes. Cool and store in an airtight container.
