cocktails w/ rose syrup?
A sweet friend gave me a bottle of homemade rose syrup. Any suggestions for cocktails to use it in?
I figured if any of my cocktail books would have a rose syrup in it, it would be one of my Hendrick's Gin ones (has rose in its botanicals). And I was not mistaken (although the majority of rose ones are rose water):
1 oz Hendrick's Gin
4-6 fresh raspberries
1 oz Lychee Juice
1/2 oz Rose Cordial (Rose Syrup)
Shake with ice and double strain into a Champagne flute. Top with Champagne and garnish with a fresh raspberry.

i don't know the exact recipe, because the bartender at little branch who invented it doesn't tell, but she makes a thing called the gershwin, which is gin and ginger with i believe a rinse of rose syrup/rose water and i dunno what else.
