Things to know about Sharbat Recipe

The Indian Traditional Watermelon Sorbet or Sharbat is a sweet cordial prepared with fruit seeds or flower petals. The word “Sharbat” is a Persian word that means “a drink of sugar and water”. “Sharbat” came from the Arabic word “Shariba” which means “to drink”. While the word “Sharab” means an alcoholic drink, “Shariba” emerged as a word for non-alcoholic drinks.

The drink is originally from Iran and was brought to India by the Mughals in the 16th century. Babar, the Mughal Emperor, used to send loads of ice from the Himalayan range to make refreshing drinks. Today, the drink is often prepared in Delhi. Apart from India, Sharbat is also consumed in Turkey, South Asia, and the Balkans.

Sharbat is typically prepared at Iftar, the break of dawn during fasting, by Muslims. Sharbat is always served chilled. Thus, the drink is mostly consumed in summer or spring.
