Hi , everyone .
This is a get ready to make a fruit drink from Ottoman Times .
It's a simple and refreshing drink , flavored with spices , served with classical Turkish dishes special in the hot days and in the month of Ramadan , let's get started .
Yeah , I have 500 g , cherries from freezer .
You can use fresh and 500 g , mix of plums and grapes and get this .
These are very sweet .
These are a little bit sour but I'm gonna edit for the flavor .
It's optional .
Uh You can make it only with a plum too and I used about third of a cup granulated sugar and for extra flavor which uh gives the Ottoman flavor .
Uh I have cinnamon stick and three clothes and we have one liter of water .
We're gonna add more later in a medium size pan .
I'm gonna eat the fruits first .
Adding the water , the spices they use really gives a , a different taste .
Turn it into a different level , I can say and make it optimal style .
I'm going to boil for 30 minutes and we'll see how it looks .
So it's been about 30 minutes boiling on a medium high heat And as you can see , they are all soft .
Now , I'm going to transfer the fruit to a strainer and drain it .
Now , I can add the sugar to the , the fruit juice we have , you can use less sugar if you like or after it is cooled a bit , add the honey .
Instead , I also added uh slices of lemon and going to boil it again .
Meanwhile , I'm helping to get the juice as much as I can from the strainer and you can press it with the back of a spoon .
I decided to translate it to a smaller strainer , finer strainer and make sure you press and get as much as flavor out as you can .
So as you can see , we have a lot of juice left here , I'm gonna put it back too and just boil for uh to in total five more minutes and turn off the y it is better to strain it again to make sure you don't have anything inside and you're just going to let it cool down completely .
What we have is a concentrated chart drink .
So we're gonna have to add more water and after it is cooled , done , put it in the refrigerator to cool it completely .
I wanted to serve in this traditional picture .
We have adding extra ice cubes so it is ice cold and serve it .
So I hope you give it a try and like it .
