      Next in "childhood memory " series, I have rose milk. Rose milk is a very famous summer drink in India. We used to prepare this drink to quench the thirst. Whenever we go out to dine, then this drink will be there in my list. Still the love for rose milk, has never decreased. This recipe is pretty easy and quick too. If we have the syrup handy, we can prepare the drink, within minutes. We can prepare the rose milk and store in refrigerator for atleast 2 days. Adjust the sugar level according to your taste.

Ingredients:
To prepare rose syrup:
1.Sugar - 1/2 cup
2.Water - 1/4 cup

let the syrup .


* When the syrup has cooled, add the rose syrup to it. The amount of rose syrup can be altered according to our taste. Add pink colour to the syrup.


Now our rose  syrup is ready. Transfer the syrup to a clean and bottle.Store it in the refrigerator, till we want to use it.

To prepare rose milk :
* Take a clean glass, add the ice cubes. Add the syrup according to our taste. If we want, a strong drink, add more syrup. If you want, more sweeter, then add sugar now.
* Now add boiled and chilled milk to the glass. Stir the rose milk well to get a perfect rose milk.
