Yield8 servings


  • ¾ cup water
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup dried rose petals (food-grade only)


  • Put all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer.
    Stir to make sure sugar dissolves completely.
  • Take off heat and steep for 15 minutes.
  • Strain and pour syrup into an airtight container.
    Use a mesh strainer to separate the rose petals from the syrup. The syrup will keep for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.


  • Recipe makes 1 cup (16 tablespoons) of rose syrup.
  • Use 1-2 tablespoons of syrup for each cup.
  • Rose buds can be used instead of rose petals. Make sure to roughly chop the rose buds before adding it into the saucepan so that the water can easily get in between the tightly closed petals.
