Sekanjabin (Iranian Mint Vinegar Syrup)

Desert Damsel

"A traditional Iranian beverage, wonderfully refreshing on a hot summer day. Great for outdoor events since you can make it weeks ahead of time and dilute at time of serving. Mix 4 to 5 tablespoons of this syrup with ice water and garnish with mint to serve."

This "Sekanjabin" recipe is for a syrup which can be used to make a drink (sharbat-e sekanjabin). Iranians like to dip lettuce leaves in the undiluted syrup as well for a refreshing summer snack...

I LOVE sekanjabin... my grandma is the master of sekanjabin and my mom right after her. Sekanjabin has been used to cool the core body temperature for hundreds of years in Persia. make the sekan...
