Chilled Rooh Afza milk with basil seeds- refreshing summer drink... Rooh Afza is a staple drink for most people in India, Pakistan and Middle East during Ramadan and Summer. It has a nice aromatic rose flavor and cooling ingredients that makes it a perfect thirst quencher for Summer. My grandfather is a huge fan of this and this was the only thing he had asked me to take it for him when I visited him. In North America, you will find this in most Indian and Middle Eastern stores. Not just adding the syrup to water or milk, you can even make different kinds of sweets and desserts with this. I'd made panna cotta after flavoring the heavy cream with rooh afza syrup.
