Saffron Sharbat

A Sharbat is a sweet drink made from fruit or flower petals. It is the PERFECT non alcoholic drink to have with my favourite Spanish foods tapas and paella. The crushed orange delight of bitter orange and saffron carries the other ingredients. Verjus brings a soft acidity that tempers the sweetness of the simple syrup while the soda water integrates the flavours together without diluting the floral notes.


  • 60 ml Maggie Beer Verjus
  • 15 ml Bitter Orange Simple Syrup
  • 120 ml Schweppes Soda Water
  • 1 lemon twist to garnish


  1. Pour syrup and verjus in the bottom of a tumbler
  2. Add half the soda and mix ingredients well
  3. Fill glass tumbler with ice
  4. Top with the rest of the soda water
  5. Garnish with a lemon twist
