To make rose infused simple syrup, boil the rose water, sugar, and pink food dye for 1 minute in a small saucepot. Place in refrigerator to cool. Once cool, divide the simple syrup in half. Place one half in a sterile perfume atomizer and use the other half to rim your martini glasses with rose syrup and then dip in rimming sugar.
