Are you looking for some special drink during this summer? If yes, then you are at the right place.

Here is the new drink which I like to share is PAAN SHARBAT.  Yes, you heard it right. Paan sharbat is a refreshing drink which awakes you mood and keeps you energetic.  This sharbat has the flavors of paan (betel leaves) and it is sweetened with gulkand. Gulkand is the blend of rose petals and sugar. You can easily find it any Indian grocery shop. 

Paan (betel leaves) has many health benefit and can be consume by everyone including kids. In drink, prefer to use Kolkata variety of paan, as this particular variety is more flavourful.If you do not find these kind, you can use any other variety of paan to make the drink. So let’s see how to boost up our mood by this amazing drink.

This quantity will serve 2 people

  • Paan – 4 to 5 nos
  • Sugar – 1 tbsp
  • Gulkand – 2 tbsp
  • Cardamom pods -2 nos
  • Water – 2 cups
  • Ice cubes – optional
  • Roughly chop the betel leaves and add it into the mixer.
  • Add in sugar, gulkand and cardamom pods. Blend everything together to a coarse paste. Do not add water while grinding. As gulkand has enough moisture to grind the ingredients into a coarse paste.
  • I have find out one thing, if we grind the mixture for too long, the taste of the leaves turns bitter. So grind it for only 5 to 10 seconds.
  • Then take out the coarse paste into a jar. Add in 2 cups of water and stir it well.
  • Let the sharbat rest it for at least 1 hour before serving. Keep it in refrigerator.
  • At the time of serving, strain the sharbat to avoid any particles coming into the mouth while drinking sharbat. You can also add ice cubes in the sharbat,
  • Here we go Paan Sharbat is ready to serve.
