Carafe (Six Servings - 48 fluid ounces / 1.4 Liters)

  • 6 Tbsp date syrup (silan, or date honey)
  • 6 Tbsp grape molasses
  • 6 Tbsp pomegranate syrup (or grenadine)

Instructions

  • Mix all syrups, add water and stir to combine. Pour into glasses with crushed ice and top with pine nuts. Serve immediately.
  • If you like golden raisins as well, you can rehydrate in a small bowl with a bag of jasmine tea. Pour boiling water over and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes. Drain and top your beverage with the raisins as well. You can also include the tea as part of your 'water' if you like the flavour.
