“My parents always make this on special occasions, but it's also a nice refreshing dessert drink for anytime. If you can't find rosewater at your local Indian/Middle Eastern store you can omit, but it adds a lovely fragrance. I haven't tried this with Splenda yet but I will someday!”

Directions

  1. Place a few tablespoons of milk in a small bowl and add the saffron threads. Gently stir with a wooden spoon and set aside. The saffron will infuse the milk and turn it into a golden color.
  2. Pour the remaining milk in a pitcher and stir in sugar until dissolved. Add two drops of rosewater (too much rosewater makes the drink bitter). Lastly, add the saffron-infused milk into the pitcher and stir.
  3. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Garnish with chopped pistachios before serving.
