This drink is popular during Ramadan and during Malays wedding buffet. Made of Rosewater syrup with milk and some ice cream soda. Since I have some left over sweet corn, I added to the drink.
It's creamy and of course refreshing and yummy. There are two ways of preparing the drinks, first by using the store bought rose water cordial ir the second way is to prepare your own.
Ingredients to make the cordial
3 cups sugar
4 to 5 cups water (depending on how thick you want your syrup)
Few drops of cochineal (dark red) food colouring ½ tsp rose essence (optional)
2 pandan leaves – tied in a knot (see my GLOSSARY post on PANDANUS)
Put all ingredients in a clean pot (make sure that there are no traces of yesterday’s meal or smell still in it) and bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 mins or until the syrup has thicken.
Leave to cool for 5 mins and whilst still warm, sieve into a jug /bottle to cool and when at room temperature, refrigerate until required.
ROSE SYRUP – see recipe HERE
Warm boiled water
A minute pinch of salt - optional
sweet corn - optional
Soda water - optional
Method – to make a glass
In a glass, add about 1/4 of glass evaporated milk and 5 tbsp of the rose syrup, plenty of ice and top with water or a combination of water and soda water. If adding soda water, add a few grains of salt and a drop of vanilla essence to the drink. 1 tbsp of sweet corn and ice. Stir and serve.
Minuman yang menyegarkan tak kala Ramadan tiba mahupun majlis perkahwinan. Air Bandung. Kali ini sya campurkan sedikit jagung manis yang kebetulan terlebih dari serimuka jagung. Sedap minum sejuk-sejuk. Boleh juga disediakan tanpa soda, semua bergantung kepada citarasa masing-masing ya!!!
