I just tried a rose flavored lassi for the first time at an Indian restaurant. A lassi is an Indian yogurt shake. I had to try to make a rose one at home. I had a bottle of rose syrup from my attempt to make Ispahan Loaf Cake.
Flavoring drinks and baked goods with rose is not uncommon in the Middle East, Indian and parts of the Mediterranean.
For us in the US it is such an usual but pleasing flavor. I found this drink to be exotic and refreshing on a hot summer afternoon.

1) Put all ingredients except the water into a blender.
2) Slowly add the water as you blend the drink. Adding only as much water as you want. Less will make it thicker.
