Rose Cordial

This simple rose cordial captures the essence of roses in a sweet syrup that's perfect for kid's sodas or mixed drinks for the adults.


  • 2 cups rose petals tightly packed for measuring
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tbsp citric acid
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 orange sliced thin


  1. Bring water and sugar to a boil in a saucepan and then remove from heat.  Stir to fully dissolve the sugar.

  2. Add the remaining ingredients into the sugar and water syrup.  Stir to distribute, and allow to infuse for 24 hours.

  3. Pour the mixture through a fine mesh strainer and bottle.

Recipe Notes

This recipe yields somewhere between 3 and 4 cups of rose cordial, depending on how well you strain and how juicy your fruit is.  I'd like to tell you exactly how much, but I spilled some while straining.  Oops...
