Rose Syrup Recipe Can be Used for Cocktails, Teas & Desserts!
Use your imagination...

Rose Syrup makes one cup

1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
1 cup dried (organic, pesticide-free) rose petals (or 2 cups fresh, organic and pesticide-free)
1 tablespoon lemon juice (optional)

Begin by making a simple syrup by combining sugar and water in a small saucepan, simmering and stirring until sugar is dissolved. Add rose petals and continue to simmer on low heat for five minutes or so. Add lemon juice and remove pan from heat. Allow mixture to steep for approximately 30 minutes, then pour through a fine-mesh strainer to remove solids. Store in the refrigerator.
