Soul syrup cocktail

20130915-155546.jpg

Rooh afza is a sweet syrup used in India and Pakistan to flavour sorbets, cold drinks and desserts. The name means “that which nourishes the soul” in Urdu. It has a faintly piney, rosy aroma and flavour. I have been experimenting with adding a small amount to summer cocktails. Although it is not normally mixed with alcohol, it seems to work.

2 oz pineapple juice
11/2 oz white rum
1/4 oz rooh afza
