Iranian Drinks

Iran is the world's 7th major tea producer, mostly cultivated in its northern regions. In Iranian culture, tea is so widely consumed,and is typically the first thing offered to a guest.Iran's traditional coffee (qahve, or kāfe) is served strong, sweet, and "booby-trapped with a sediment of grounds".In 16th-century Safavid Iran, coffee was initially used for medical proposes among the society.Traditional coffeehouses were popular gatherings, in which people drank coffee, smoked tobacco, and recited poetry—especially the epic poems of Šāhnāme.

Iranian traditional beverages

Sherbet which is fruit syrup is very common beverage for guests, sekanjebin is popular sharbet. Fresh juices weren’t that common traditionally, only carrot juice which is matched with Iranian traditional ice cream. Flower essence beverages called “ Aragh” are very popular and refreshing, a must-try in Iran. Aragh sometimes also has seeds in it such as Chia seed. On Iran culinary tour you will visit the essence making workshops. The variety exceeds 30-40 types since each flower has its aragh. Each aragh has its own medical properties too, a knowledge that is quite well known among Iranians. Aragh is the first remedy in Iran for many light physical problems.

Combine sugar and water in a pot and put it on medium heat. Stir it until sugar is dissolved. Reduce heat and let it gently boil for 10-15 minutes. Add vinegar and simmer it until it thickens which may take about 30 minutes. Adjust the level of sweetness and sourness of the syrup. Remove the mint and put the syrup into the fridge. Now mix the syrup with ice water, shredded cucumber, and lime. You can also serve the syrup without the water with lettuce.


It is very much alike Khakshi in terms of making and benefits that you can find both in Latin food section if you are not in Iran or in attari ((herbs and spices shop) if you are in Iran.Ingredients and methods are exactly like khakshi

Now you have the syrup that you can serve at any time with adding water. You can adjust the sweetness or add a teaspoon of lime juice to it.
