The dried rose petals come in a bag and looks a little bit like potpourri. But you just have to get past that. Dried roses are SO great in so many ways.

They add such a fun flavor to dishes and people are shocked to learn that there are roses in their food. Plus they’re pink! Pink food always tastes better. Said every little girl.

How to Make a Dried Rose Petal Rim

Chop the rose petals.

There isn’t much prep needed for this aside from rough chopping the dried rose petals.

Then you just spin the edge of your cocktail glass or champagne flute in the rose syrup.

Step 3

Dip the glass in the rose petals then dab the sticky edge in the dried rose petals. That’s it. Done.

Depending on how much syrup you end up with on your glass, it may start to run a little. I love things that aren’t super perfect so the drippy rose syrup looks really pretty to me.

Others may not love it so just be aware it can happen and wipe the excess off if you need to. 

To Serve Champagne

Most of the rose flavor comes from the syrup and not the rose petals. They look really pretty but if you aren’t into cocktail rimmers (I don’t usually love them – why do they have to be so messy?) then just skip it and serve the champagne in a plain glass.

Rose syrup is much thicker than traditional simple syrup but you can use it in a pinch. You can make an extra thick simple syrup at home by using twice the amount of sugar than water.

While you can typically add a glass rim by just wetting the rim, the rose petals are a bit heavier and require a little more to adhere on the glass. You could also try honey, agave syrup, or maple syrup although these will all add a little bit of extra flavor.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is rose syrup?

Rose syrup is super sweet and yes, flower-y. It gives drinks a really pretty color and, because you don’t use much in each recipe, the flavor is actually pretty subtle. But it’s really sticky so it works perfectly for rimming a cocktail glass. You can easily find this at your local international market.
