Date & rose water jallab is a refreshingly sweet summer drink popular in the Middle East. This is our version of cordial and my simplified way of making it.
What I love most about Jallab is the heap of pine nuts floating in the glass. The idea is to try to get a mouthful of ice and some pine nuts in one gulp.
It’s super simple to make jallab syrup from scratch. Here’s my step-by-step Jallab syrup recipe if you would like to give it a go.
To serve, add crushed ice into 4 tall glasses. Pour date molasses equally into the glasses and fill them with water. Garnish with 1 Tbs of pine nuts each.
