The Classy, Modern "Rose & Rye" Cocktail
Gorgeously garnished with rose petals, this fresh cocktail is a striking creation of Rose's Luxury, a Washington, D.C. based restaurant. It's a surefire hit for sophisticated gatherings, with floral notes enlivened by a hint of lemon juice.

Rose & Rye

Makes one cocktail
1⁄3 cup sugar
2 drops rose extract, such as Terra
1 1⁄2 oz. rye whiskey (preferably Rittenhouse)
3⁄4 oz. rose simple syrup
1⁄2 oz. fresh lemon juice
2 dashes Fee Brothers Old Fashioned bitters
1. Make the simple syrup: In a 1-qt. saucepan, stir the sugar with 1⁄3 cup water and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the rose extract. Let cool completely.
2. In a cocktail shaker, combine the whiskey, syrup, lemon juice, and bitters with ice. Shake vigorously, and strain into a chilled rocks glass. Garnish with rose petals.

If you know anything about me you know I'm addicted to rose anything. The scent, the flavor, the color, and now, this cocktail!

I'm with @caricakes. I totally condone this rose kick you've been on. (Because I've been on one too lol.)

It has been a bit of a kick, hasn't it? Lol XD I guess I'm just in a floral mood! What with the beautiful summer weather, and everything blooming... @caricakes I hope you try it soon! Let me know how it comes out ;) I'm not usually a whiskey girl, but something about combining it with rose makes it sounds sooo good to me.
