Rooh Afza is a famous Gulab sharbat brand in India. Make this base syrup at home easily. It can be mixed with plain water to make full glass serving.

Rooh Afza is a well known gulab sharbat brand in India and we have grown up drinking it in summers and serving it to guests. Some of you may have also seen it being served publicly on occasions like 'Guru Purab' mixed with milk or plain water.

Here, we are presenting a simple way of making the same Rooh Afza or the Gulab Sharbat at home. It is my mother-in-laws own recipe which she has used in every summer over the years and saved money too by making this in abundance at home

It can be equated with the rose squash or any other sugar based rose flavored syrups that you normally get in market.
