refreshing drink in a hot summer day


  • 2 Cups water
  • 150 Grams palm sugar (pls note that i'm a sweet-tooth)
  • 2 Inches cinnamon stick
  • 8 cloves
  • 2 star anise
  • 2 green apples
  • dash of salt
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    These are the ingredients. I use 2 green apples but sure you can adjust with any fruits you like.

    Step 2

    Boil 2 cups of water in a pan.

    Step 3

    Finely chopped the palm sugar & put them all in the boiling water. If you can't find any palm sugar just like the one I use, brown sugar will do just fine.

    Step 4

    Add the cloves and star anise.

    Step 5

    Add the cinnamon. Add this point, adjust the sweetness according to your tastebus and put a dash of salt. For those who like it hot, put lil amount of finely chopped red-chili

    Step 6

    Add your fruits to the aromatic sauce. I like them diced, but you may slice them to whatever form you like.

    Step 7

    Bring this aromatic poached fruits to simmer for 5 minutes to reduce the sauce a little and let the aroma and spice blend into the fruits.

    Step 8

    Put in a bowl and let it cool or you can put the bowl in the fridge. Put a lemongrass to give extra aromatic scent to your drink.

    Step 9

    Enjoy! ☺
