About Mohabbat Ka Sharbat

Mohabbat ka Sharbat is a popular summer drink sold at Old Delhi shops. It translated to ‘Love Drink’. This drink is very popular during Ramzan and Eid.

It is a delicious and refreshing combination of fresh watermelon, rose syrup, milk, sugar, ice cubes, and rose petals. 

This drink became popular from a street shop (thela) opposite Jama Masjid, run by Nawab Qureshi. He named it Pyaar Mohabbat Wala Sharbat. Soon, its popularity grew, and many street vendors sold it during the summer.

This drink is perfect for sipping on hot summer days. It is also popularly served during Ramadan and Eid. You can also serve it as a dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients

Milk – I like to use whole milk (full-fat milk) to make this drink as it makes it rich and creamy. You can choose to use low-fat or skim milk, too.

To make the drink vegan, use plant-based milk like coconut milk, cashew milk, or almond milk.

Sugar – Use granulated white sugar to sweeten the drink. You can replace sugar with honey or maple syrup.

Adjust the sugar as per your taste.

Rose Syrup – I used Rooh Af Za, but you can use any brand.

Watermelon Juice – For the best taste, Use fresh watermelon juice. Check out my post on how to make watermelon juice.

Watermelon – You will also need cubed watermelon. Try to use seedless watermelon. If your watermelon has seeds, then remove them all.

Others – You will also need chilled water, ice cubes, and fresh rose petals.

Pro Tips By Neha

According to Ayurveda, mixing fruits with milk is not a good idea. However, my family and thousands of other people have been drinking beverages made by combining milk and fruits and are okay with it. If you have a sensitive stomach and you are not comfortable with combining watermelon with milk, please refrain from drinking this sharbat.
