About This Recipe
Keeping yourself hydrated is very important during summers and also making sure that you consume ingredients that helps to protect you from the scorching heat outside.
Therefore along with drinking water on a regular basis, I also make sure to consume shakes, juices, or even mocktails to keep me hydrated. And when it comes to Indian drinks, Lassi is my absolute favorite.
Lassi is a very popular yogurt-based drink in India, especially in North India where it’s made thick and creamy and it’s just the perfect drink to sip this summer.
Today I’m going to present to you a royal and decadent version of the traditional lassi, Rose Lassi. Rose Lassi is a refreshing combination of yogurt and rose syrup and it is a perfect drink to sip on warm summer days.
To make this delicious and fragrant Lassi, you will need just 4 key ingredients – Rose Syrup, Yogurt, Sugar, and Milk. Yes, that’s it!
Make sure to use a good quality rose syrup for a better taste. For this simple divine recipe, I use the popular rose syrup called Rooh Afza that gives it a rather unique taste. You could use any brand of Rose Syrup, but the most popular one in the market is Rooh Afza, it also gives the sweet lassi a beautiful hue of pink.
Add ice cubes while making the Lassi, because it tastes the best when chilled or you can refrigerate it for an hour before serving.
Once you make the Lassi, garnish it with crushed dry fruits and rose petals. I have used pistachios here, but you can even add crushed almonds and cashews.
You can also make rose lassi by adding gulkand to it. Gulkand is a jam made using fresh rose petals. It gives a very unique taste to the lassi. Add 1 tbsp gulkand to the below-mentioned recipe but make sure to reduce the amount of sugar as gulkand is quite sweet.
I have not added any additional colour to the recipe to enhance its appearance.

Pour this delicious rosy pink concoction into a beautiful serving glass and top it with some chopped almonds and pistachios for a nice crunch.
You could also top this sweet rose lassi with some fresh or dried rose petals; this adds a love flavor to the whole drink and makes it simply irresistible.
Serve Rose Lassi on its own for your breakfast or a snack or serve it on the side with your festive meals or meals that you are preparing for special occasions.
You can store Lassi in a sealed container or glass bottle for about 2 days in the refrigerator. I don’t recommend freezing it as it might result in a change in the texture.
