There are few drinks in our middle eastern cuisine that are related somehow to some special occasions, one of them is this Sweet Tamarind juice :) more like a welcome drink in the holy month of Ramadan.
This cold sweet and sour drink is a must on every Ramadani Iftar (break fast) table, as it is so refreshing and appetite improving.
Tamarind has many nutritional benefits, it improves digestion and contains anti-oxidants . Rich in different minerals and has Vitamin C .
It is just the perfect sweet drink to start your Iftar with, the amazing aroma of rose water that is added in this juice will complete the whole notes of flavors! Am sure your taste buds will love the aromatic cooling sensation from the first Sip! :)
