Rose Lemonade

Shilpa Joshi
Perfect summery floral drink! Rose lemonade has the tang of lemons and lovely light floral notes from the rose petals. Rose petals are used to make a quick simple syrup for this summer treat.

Lemons vary in intensity of flavors.  You may need to taste to adjust to your taste dependent on how ripe they are, what type they are etc.
Lemon zest can add a strong note of lemon
There will be some leftover rose simple syrup.  Again, some may prefer more.  The recipe is balanced but can definitely be adjusted per your preference.
Leftover rose simple syrup can be kept in a jar in the fridge for future use.
