I could hug you and never let go of you for sharing such an incredibly simple, easy and delicious recipe. This has to be the Planet's Most Delicious Rose Water Syrup! Strange how such a nice recipe hasn't been tried out and reviewed for so many months. This tastes so wonderful, it's really hard that I have to give you just five stars for sharing this awesome recipe. This tastes divine and truly sweet, just as though it is some precious nectar falling from heaven! The balance of the flavours of lemon juice, sugar and rose is SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL on the tongue:-) With all my heart, a BIG BIG THANK YOU for this recipe!

Fantastic! I added a drop of grenadine syrup for a rosy tint.

I made this today with the intention of giving it as gifts. I doubled the recipe, added 2 drops of rose pink food colouring and bottled it in some lovely bottles that i bought. I personally don't eat strawberries so cannot wait for my first reaction.
