Rooh Afza Lemon Sharbat / Indian Lemonade

Summer is here ! We are chilling with refreshing drinks everyday. Today its watermelon Juice and Rooh Afza lemon sharbat. Rooh Afza is an non alcoholic concentrated squash available in stores. It is made out of fruits, herbs and vegetable extracts. It is believed to have cooling effect on the body.

It has a strong floral flavour and very beautiful pink color when mixed with water or milk. We grow up drinking rose milk and this lemonade every other day during Ramzan fasting. We also add sabja seeds (basil seeds) to the rose milk. Chilled lemon sharbat and rose milk are heavenly drinks for summer. It not only quenches thirst , but gives cooling effect and its is soooo refreshing.


  • 400 ml of Water
  • 4 Tablespoon of Rooh Afza ( it has sugar , so we will use less sugar in the lemon sharbat)
  • 2 Tablespoon Sugar
  • Juice of 4 Lemons ( about 4 Tablespoons)
  • a pinch of salt
  • Lemon Slices for serving 


1. In a mixing bowl add chilled water. If you are using regular water, add ice cubes
2. Mix Sugar, Salt  to the water and stir until sugar dissolves

3. Add lemon juice and rooh afza and mix well with a spoon

4. Taste and check for sweetness. Add more sugar if you like it sweeter
5. Serve chilled with lemon slices and ice cubes
