Rose Syrup Recipe

This extremely easy rose syrup recipe can be used as the base for so many drinks. It is a popular recipe to use as the base in one of my favorite drinks, Falooda, an addictive milkshake that’s very popular in Sri Lanka and India, and other parts of South Asia. That is the reason why this rose syrup is also known as Falooda syrup.

Rose syrup is one of the rare foods that appeal to all food senses, especially sight. It is a beautiful-looking syrup and it is impossible for me to find the right words to explain the look and amazing aroma of rose syrup. It is pinkish in color and smells of roses, and it tastes almost like a mixture between Turkish Delights, and ice cream.

Rose syrup is not as sweet as corn syrup or dark syrup. It has a balanced taste and is perfect for use in many cocktails and mocktails. It is freaking good!

Thanks and enjoy your rose syrup and Falooda cocktails

As a cricket promoter, I am constantly on the travel and have frequent visits to India and the middle-east. I am very familiar with Falooda milkshakes and now at last I have a way of making my own at home. Thanks so much for this great and easy rose syrup recipe. 5.00
