I don’t think this is the best time to share a drink, especially when the weather is getting cooler. However, even though cold, I’m somebody who would go for a smoothie or a juice instead of a hot chai or coffee if I am really in a mood for one. I always have rose syrup handy at home, anytime for the guests, because it is quite a hit among guests who come. Put in some crunch from soaked basil seeds and the coolness that comes is just too good…
Rose Milk with Basil Seeds
- 1 tbsp basil seeds
- 1/3 cup rose syrup
- 2 cups cold milk
- 2/3 cup cold water
- Soak the basil seeds in 1/4 cup of water, till all bloated. This will take around 10 minutes.
- In a bowl, mix the remaining ingredients till well combined.
- Pour into tall glasses, divide the plump basil seeds into all three glasses and serve immediately.
Instead of having a milk-water combination, you can go for all milk too.
You can very well serve the rose milk without any basil seeds.
