Rose milk syrup is thickened sugar syrup with a scent of rose essence and pink food colour,this can be stored for 2-3 months and consumed when needed.Chennai’s temperature is at it’s peak already even before the onset of Agni Nakshathram.So its better to prepare homemade drinks and stock them instead of relying on store bought ones.
I always wanted to try this rose syrup at home for the store bought ones are very concentrated with sugar and color.Having a cool Rosemilk on a hot day cools your body and also satisfies your sugar craving.This one goes down great in parties as well.Do make this easy summer drink at home for your kids.
