Rose Simple Syrup
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine water, sugar, and lemon zest over medium-high heat. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly; reduce heat to low, and simmer, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. When sugar is melted, remove from heat, and add petals from 1 edible rose. Let stand for at least 10 minutes (The flavor will intensify the longer the roses steep.) Let cool completely.
