You can purchase good-quality rose syrup, or make it yourself using food-grade rosewater and/or organic rose petals. If you want a slightly less acidic cocktail, use a couple small segments of grapefruit peel rather than the slices for the garnish. The peel will impart the oils of the fruit without adding to the drink’s acidity.
