Gulab Ka Sharbat / Fresh Rose Syrup Recipe – A very cool and refreshing drink made with fresh rose petals
During summer we all want to have some thing cool and refreshing to beat the heat. There are so many different types of sharbat and squashes available in the market but they all are loaded with artificial flavors and colours which are not good for health.
I always prefer to make drinks with fresh fruits at home as they are healthy, fresh and economical too as compared to the juices available in the market. Sharbat made with fresh flowers and herbs are significantly more refreshing and flavorful as compared to off the shelf market products.
A few days ago, a very good friend Chandrika ji sent me fresh roses from her garden and I immediately thought to make fresh rose syrup / sharbat with the beautiful and fragrant roses. If you want to try this gulab ka sharbat / rose syrup, then try to get the desi gulab if possible, (roses found in India/Pakistan/Sri Lanka) for making this. I have not added any colour or essence in the rose syrup/sharbat as the roses have their own beautiful scent. But if the roses you find do not have a strong enough fragrance, you can add a little rose water into it.
