Rose Milk
Weather has been very kind on us for the past two weeks in Seattle. We are having an extended summer here. It is `Summer in Fall` like we had `Snow in Spring`~ A reason to blog about Rose milk.
Summer brings up memories of chilled Rose milk~ a milk based dessert/drink where milk and rose essence bring out a brilliant aromatic flavor. Rose Milk is a delicious sweet drink to have before or after a meal.

Amma served chilled Rose Milk during the power cuts on hot sultry summer nights in Hyderabad~one reason we enjoyed power cuts and the other was skipping studies. She was very famous among our friends for her preparation. I have followed Amma`s recipe for Rose Milk~ A homemade alternative for Colas to beat the summer heat. I make the syrup in advance and serve Rose Milk as a refreshing drink for my family or as a dessert for my guests.
Ingredients:
  1. 2 cups Sugar
  2. 1 cup water
  3. 1/2 teaspoon Rose essence
  4. 1/4 teaspoon Citric Acid
  5. 1/8 teaspoon Rasberry color
Procedure:
  1. Combine water, sugar and citric acid. Boil until the sugar melts. Let it cool.
  2. When cool add the essence and the color. Mix well and store in airtight bottles in the refrigerator.
  3. To make Rose Milk: Add one part syrup to three parts milk. Serve chilled.

  9. Dear Happycook,
    I have not used rose water and I believe that it could dilute the syrup. I hope Laavanya`s quick fix recipe helps.

    Thanks Laavanya.
