Heat sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium high heat until it reaches a low boil. Reduce heat to medium low, and simmer for 10-12 minutes, or until syrup becomes slightly thickened. Stir in rose petals, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to steep an additional 30 minutes. Drain through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth to remove petals. Allow to cool, and chill in a covered container until ready to use.
Pour ¼ cup fresh Meyer lemon juiced into each glass.
Stir in rose simple syrup.
