I think this rose milk recipe doesn’t need any intro, it’s basically cold milk flavoured with rose syrup. I always prepare this rose syrup in large quantity during summer and prepare rose milk every now and then. I even try to avoid hot drinks like coffee / tea which I regularly have it in the morning and evening (unavoidable habit). Though their are numerous rose syrup brands in market to make the work simpler, preparing from scratch by ourselves, always gives a delight. This homemade rose syrup recipe lends more flavour, and we can also avoid food colour by using beetroot juice. From my childhood I am always fascinated at the first sight of this rose milk and till today we can see this rose milk in the menu cards of all restaurants and juice shops in Tamilnadu. It is always a evergreen drink and a perfect thirst quencher for summer.
