Kokam Sarbat / Mangosteen Sharbat

With the mercury levels rising here, I felt the need for kokam (mangosteen) sarbat (sharbat). Back in India we always buy a sarbat concentrate from supermarket and sarbat is at our tips instantly whenever we want. I decided to experiment kokam sarbat on my own over here. The result was an authentic and ideal drink for the summer.

For Kokam concentrate
20g amsul / mangosteen
1/2 glass water

For sarbat
1 glass cold water
2 tsp. sugar (or as per taste)
1 pinch salt

  1. Soak the 20g in water for about 30-45 minutes.  Scramble the amsul with hand and strain out the concentrate.
  2. Take 2 tbsp. of concentrate in a serving glass, add sugar, salt and chaat masala. Add enough water to fill the glass and mix well.
  3. Kokam sarbat is ready to serve. Add ice if you want it extra cool.
