Jasmine-Rose Simple Syrup
Energetic Alignment: Love, Psychic Abilities, Spirituality
A floral cocktail syrup combining the enchanting flavors of jasmine and rose. Inspired by the Cancer Moon’s energies of (self) love, and emotional and spiritual connection, this simple syrup can add a touch of bewitching aromatics and a beguiling light pink hue to your concoctions – all you need is some organic dried jasmine and rose petals! (Although, you can also settle for just dried rose petals if you do not have dried jasmine). As a cocktail syrup, the combination of these two essences can add a back note of floral flavors that elevate your sipping experiences.
A few notes –
Jasmine can quickly become overwhelming, so I recommend erring on the side of less jasmine than more. You can play with using Jasmine Green tea, although I do not recommend it for my Cancer Moon Cocktails, as the tea flavor can easily interfere overwhelm the other flavors. But perhaps you can make some concoctions of your own with such experiments!
The Cocktails I use this in:
Jasmine-Rose Simple Syrup
- 1 tbsp dried rose petals
- 1/2 (or less) tbsp dried jasmine
- 1/2 cup hot water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- Set hot water to boil. Place rose petal and jasmine into a jar. Perhaps take a moment to enjoy their scent and tune into their spiritual & healing energies. When ready, pour the hot water over the ingredients and allow it to steep for 5 minutes as thought a tea. Then, add in sugar and stir. Allow to cool, then strain and use!
