Roohafza Lemonade with basil seeds - Kids party drink

I was in a dilemma on to what to make for the final post of week 1: kids delight theme. There is a saying “Too many cooks spoil the broth “, likewise too many choices too spoil everything. I had around 4 dishes to select from with everything ready, but i settled for this simple yet colorful sherbet.
We tasted this in a friend’s birthday party and my lil one loved the striking red color of the drink. When I made this today, he was so thrilled and he remembered the party immediately.

We loved the drink as it was mild and the flavor of roohafza wasn’t too over powering. A best party drink especially with kids. Do try and let me know how you enjoyed it.

2 tbsp subza/basil seeds
3 tbsp roohafza syrup 
2.5 cups of water (chilled water)
3-4 tbsp sugar (or to taste)
Handful of mint leaves
Juice of lemon
Lemon wedges form garnish (optional)
  • In a bowl take the subza seeds add 1/4 cup of water and let it sit for 10 minutes for it to bloom well.
  • In a pitcher, add roohafza syrup, chilled water, bloomed subza seeds, sugar and lemon juice. Mix well to combine.
  • The subza will be clumped together so this mixing will help it to separate and also for the sugar to dissolve.

  • Add mint leaves to the sherbet, serve immediately garnished with lemon wedges or refrigerate it until served.
