Sure! Here's a recipe for Gulab Ka Sharbat, a refreshing and fragrant rose syrup drink:
- 1 cup rose petals (preferably organic and pesticide-free)
- 4 cups water
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- A pinch of saffron strands (optional)

Wash the rose petals thoroughly to remove any dirt or impurities. Pat them dry with a clean cloth or paper towel.
In a saucepan, combine the rose petals and water. Bring it to a boil over medium heat. Once it comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes to infuse the flavor of the roses into the water.
After simmering, strain the rose-infused water into another clean pot or container. Discard the rose petals.
Add the sugar to the rose water and stir well until the sugar is completely dissolved. You can adjust the amount of sugar based on your taste preferences.
Allow the mixture to cool down to room temperature. Once cooled, add the lemon juice and saffron strands (if using). Stir well to combine.
Transfer the Gulab Ka Sharbat to a clean and airtight bottle or container. You can store it in the refrigerator for up to a month.
Take a glass and add a few ice cubes.
Pour Gulab Ka Sharbat into the glass, filling it about halfway.
Top it up with chilled water according to your taste preference. You can adjust the quantity of sharbat and water as per your liking.
Stir well to mix the sharbat with water.
Garnish with a few fresh rose petals if desired.
Serve the Gulab Ka Sharbat chilled and enjoy its refreshing and floral flavors.
Note: You can also add a few drops of rose water or a pinch of cardamom powder for added flavor variation. Adjust the sweetness and dilution of the sharbat according to your taste.
