Watermelon in Rose Sherbet/Syrup

Fine cubes of Watermelon soaked in Rose syrup is my most favorite way of indulging in this beauty of a fruit!
.
Chilled watermelon.....
Dripping with rose syrup.......
A hint of lemon juice........................
Some kala namak(black salt) thrown in to kick it up........

The taste that culminates is almost sinful, indescribable on a food blog ;)
The rose brings out all the juices from the watermelon to create a lovely flavor!
.
There are no hard and fast rules to make this tantalising drink!
.
Chop the water melon into fine cubes.
Add rose syrup/sherbet as per taste. I add about 5-6 tbsp for a mini seedless watermelon.
Squeeze lemon juice(optional, if you like the subtle hint of tartness).
Add black salt (kala namak) as per taste. (optional)
Add lots of ice cubes and chill well for a few hours for the flavors to mingle.
Fill up glasses with the mix and Indulge........

I looooove watermelon, as it is. No fuss, no muss. You make this sound way too good though. What type or brand of rose syrup/sherbet do you recommend?
