One of the best Iranian traditional drinks is saffron juice.
One of these traditional and very delicious drinks is saffron juice which we want to offer the method of preparing it.
Ingredients you need are ½ tablespoon of ground saffron, 3 tablespoon of rosewater, half a liter of water and enough amount of sugar.
First put a small saucepan on the stove, pour the water in it and wait until it boils, then reduce the heat and add sugar slowly and stir until sugar dissolve in water. Then add saffron ground and stir until saffron dissolve in water and sugar. In the last step add rosewater and stir. About 15 minutes later your syrup will reach a good density, but pay attention that you should stand this whole time with it to make sure it won’t get wishy-washy or too thick.
Then put the saucepan somewhere else and let it chill out. Now your syrup is ready. Fill 1/3 of a glass with this syrup then add water and ice and stir. Now enjoy it.
