Rose Flower Water

I was wondering if anyone had any cocktail recipes calling for rose flower water? I could have sworn I've come across drinks calling for it but I never had any. Now that I've gotten a bottle I'm drawing a total blank for what to do with it!

Thanks in advance.

      An ingredient used in a few drinks, orgeat syrup, calls for rose water and/or orange blossom water.

        I'll second the Orgeat. Then make Mai Tais with it. Perfect for summer. Here is the recipe I always use:
