Ramadan Date Night Drink-Jallab

 For the first night of Ramadan, my wife made us a traditional date-molasses drink called Jallab. This refreshing drink it’s quick and easy to make. We were able to find the date molasses and rosewater at a local Middle Eastern grocery store.


2 1/2 Tb date molasses
1/2  tsp rose water
1 Tb slivered almonds and/or pine nuts
Water, enough to fill your glass


In a tall glass, add water, ice, molasses and rose water. Stir well.
Top with slivered almonds and pine nuts.

Yield: one drink
