Strawberry Rose Syrup

  • 227 grams (about 1 3/4 Cups) fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 300 grams (1 1/2 Cups) granulated sugar
  • 237 milliliters (1 Cup) water
  • 7 grams (about 3 heaping Tablespoons) dried rose petals
  • 1/8 teaspoon rose water

Strawberry Rose Tequila Sunrise

  • 1/2 ounce (15 milliliters) Strawberry Rose Syrup
  • 2 ounces (59 milliliters) silver tequila
  • 4 ounces (118 milliliters) orange juice, not from concentrate, preferably freshly-squeezed
  • Ice, cubed (for shaking) plus crushed or cubed, as needed for serving
  • Strawberry rose, orange slice and/or cocktail umbrella, optional, as desired for garnishing (See the Stop & Smell the (Strawberry) Roses text above for more information on how to make your own strawberry roses) 


Strawberry Rose Syrup

  1. Gather, measure and prepare the Strawberry Rose Syrup ingredients as listed. 
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the strawberries, sugar and water. Set over medium high heat, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar. Bring the syrup to a boil and reduce to simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Allow the syrup to cool slightly and transfer to a blender. Blend on medium speed, for 30 seconds. To remove the pieces of strawberries, pass the syrup through a fine mesh strainer, twice. You may need to tap the sides of the strainer to help shake the syrup through.
  4. After straining, while the syrup is still warm add rose petals to the syrup and stir to combine. Steep the rose petals in the syrup, in the refrigerator overnight.
  5. Once steeped, use a fine mesh strainer to strain the rose petals from the syrup. Add rose water and stir to combine. The Strawberry Rose Syrup is ready to be used immediately or can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week. 

Strawberry Rose Tequila Sunrise

  1. Gather, measure and prepare the Strawberry Rose Tequila Sunrise ingredients as listed. 
  2. Add the Strawberry Rose Syrup to an empty tall glass. (Highball or hurricane style glasses are recommended).
  3. In a cocktail tin, combine tequila and orange juice. Fill with cubed ice and shake for 10 – 15 seconds, until chilled. 
  4. Add crushed or cubed ice over the Strawberry Rose Syrup to nearly fill the glass.
  5. Pour the tequila and orange juice over the ice. With a bar spoon (or swizzle stick), gently stir the syrup in the bottom of the glass to create a gradient effect. 
  6. Garnish with a strawberry rose, orange slice and/or cocktail umbrella, as desired.
