Rose Water Gin Cocktail
1 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 oz rose water simple syrup
2 oz gin
Splash club soda
Add 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar in a small pot and simmer until sugar is dissolved. Let it cool and add in 1 teaspoon rose water extract. Store the simple syrup in the refrigerator. If you’re serving right away add rose petals to the simple syrup for a beautiful presentation. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, pour in the gin, lemon juice and simple syrup and shake for more than 20 seconds so the ice can melt and dilute the ingredients. Add a splash of club soda if you prefer! Strain over a large ice cube and garnish with a lemon twist and rose petal.
