This particular cooling and refreshing drink is a tart and sweet fruity mix of hibiscus and rose flowers and basil seeds. This easy and fuss-free recipes can be done in a few ticks and leaves you plenty of time to enjoy the warmer weather.




I never knew anything about hibiscus flowers or it's recipes and nutritional values until I saw them in Dubai spice market and bought a packet of dried hibiscus flowers to bring home without any clue, always think let's buy it now and will check later on google.

Once I searched recipes for hibiscus flowers online and read about its health benefits, I had a great excuse to execute the plan to make this natural and refreshing drink in my kitchen as the UK is still very toasty and sweltering heat demands for not just chilled but naturally cooling drinks.

I know, once again we are discussing weather here, sorry guys can't help it :) We have been warned that this week temperatures can reach above 35c. Health experts are issuing warnings for us to take extra precautions to stay cool in this hottest summer that is the highest temperature for more than 100 years.

Once I thought of making hibiscus sharbat, I added Basil Seeds aka Takmaria/Tukmaria or Sabja as these tiny but mighty seeds offers a bucketful of benefits. Also, it acts as a coolant and has a cooling effect on our bodies. Once they are added to the cold drinks, their cooling properties increases in the drink and lowers the body heat in the summer time. Whenever we travel to a country where temperatures are high, we carry Basil Seeds with us, just pop a teaspoon in a water bottle and drink it.

So now that we've been advised to stay out of the sun, we stayed in and I prepared a pitcher of this natural, delicious and good for your Sharbat to cool off in this sweltering heat and guess what the entire pitcher vanished into thin air in no time, it was so good :)

Have you ever tried using hibiscus in your kitchen? If not, I urge you to make this summer. Just find fresh hibiscus flowers or dried and make this sharbat in no time. If you want to make this drink for a get-together, make a hibiscus flower concentrate in advance, store it in the Refridgerator and use it whenever you required.

Notes:-
I have used the dried hibiscus flowers, but you can use fresh too.
I have used the rose syrup to sweetened the sharbat, you can use normal sugar, honey, or maple syrup too.
This sharbat can be made without basil seeds too.
