Rose Cardamom Syrup And Three Easy Ways To Use It

Rose Cardamom Syrup | Playful Cooking

This mildly sweet, perfumy rose and cardamom syrup is the perfect way to add a splash of floral sweetness to your drinks and desserts. The syrup is easy to make. It has countless uses and I am sharing three easy effortless ways to use it.

The store-bought rose syrup mostly has an overpowering flavor and I am not the one who can take those strong aromas. While making the syrup at home, I can take completely control. I can create it the way I like it, mild and not overly sweet. I have used dried rose petals only because I had a packet lying around to be used. But, the next batch will definitely be with the fresh ones from the garden.
