    BrownSugarChef's Note:

    My parents always make this on special occasions, but it's also a nice refreshing dessert drink for anytime. If you can't find rosewater at your local Indian/Middle Eastern store you can omit, but it adds a lovely fragrance. I haven't tried this with Splenda yet but I will someday!

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place a few tablespoons of milk in a small bowl and add the saffron threads. Gently stir with a wooden spoon and set aside. The saffron will infuse the milk and turn it into a golden color.
    2. 2
      Pour the remaining milk in a pitcher and stir in sugar until dissolved. Add two drops of rosewater (too much rosewater makes the drink bitter). Lastly, add the saffron-infused milk into the pitcher and stir.
    3. 3
      Refrigerate until ready to serve. Garnish with chopped pistachios before serving.

      This is very different to DD (toddler) and I but Oh so delicious. I used rice dream to be dairy free. I used brown sugar for the sugar and would do so again. I added a bit too much rose water by mistake so be careful adding just a little. It does make a good addition though for sure. It is wonderful with the unsweet chopped pistachio nuts in this sweetend drink. I will make this recipe again insha Allah.

      This is most definitely something different in the drink department, at least where I come from, but still, I enjoyed making it & found it to be an intriguing drink to serve! I did omit the rose water, but when I make this another time, that will be included! Thanks for posting an interesting & unusual recipe!
