Recipe by 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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This "Sekanjabin" recipe is for a syrup which can be used to make a drink (sharbat-e sekanjabin). Do not serve the syrup as a drink straight! Notice that the instructions to make it into a drink by diluting it with water are in the recipe description. Iranians like to dip lettuce leaves in the undiluted syrup as well for a refreshing summer snack. Thank you Desert Damsel for sharing your recipe. REVIEW UPDATE: Allrecipes has changed the title on the recipe to reflect the fact that it is a syrup (and not a drink) since the time I did this review.
