Watermelon Rose Sipper

The rose syrup was an experiment for me. I have used rose water (which is highly concentrated) before, but I’ve never made the syrup. Although the syrup was initially very fragrant, the aroma faded over a couple days. I can’t say I can taste the rose in this drink, but it changes the flavour of the watermelon to something a bit more exotic that you can’t quite put a finger on.

Rose Syrup

petals from 1 rose
1 cup sugar
1 1/3 cup water

Bring to a boil. Simmer for 1 minute. Cover, and let stand for 20 minutes.
