      It's so delicious. I prefer it with carbonated water. It's good over ice cream, too. ;) I followed awalde's advice & had no problems. Made for NA/ME goes to Lebanon 9/12.

      Hhmm, this is a delicious rose syrup!
      It's very important to follow the recipe and don't let boil the syrup if the sugar is not yet dissolved and really don't stirr while boiling. This should prevent the formation of sugar cristals.
      Since I did once (not wiht this recipe) this mistake, I know it!
      The quality of the rose water will have a big impact with the taste and the result.
      I like it with some more lemon juice as personal taste and I love it if not too sweet.
      Thanks a lot for posting this recipe.
