Stir and strain or build on rocks. Top with carbonated water.
Floribunda: A rose shrub
For rose hip vinegar: Carefully clean any thorns from hips and trim tops/bottoms. Pierce each several times with an needle. Place in bottle and top with vinegar and leave in dark for a month agitating periodically. I used white wine vinegar but cider vinegar would be better for this.
For rose hip syrup: carefully remove small thorns that may be caught on hips. Trim top and bottom. Pulse in a blender. Place in saucepan, cover with water, simmer for 15-30 min. Filter out hips and make into 1:1 sugar syrup. Strain with strainer then through coffee filters. Store in refrigerator.
Caution! Wear gloves when harvesting and handling rose hips! Even small thorns can cause a staph infection. Seeds in rose hips contain irritating fibers.
