Rose Syrup
This recipe is from "Cocktails by Flavor" (2013).

Makes 2 cups


3-4 organic red, scented, garden roses
2 cups caster sugar
11/2 cup water


Wash rose petals. Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan and heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved. Reduce the heat to low, add the rose petals and simmer very gently for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally (do not boil).
Remove from the heat and let cool 2-3 hours to allow the flavours to develop. Strain, then bottle.
