Current News

We've had some drama and are currently doing some internal housekeeping and rewriting here on Gypsy Magic.

It's going to take a while to get things set right here and I am really sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. I apologize for links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal.

Sharbatee Gulab - For the Rosalia

June 4 is the Rosalia and an excellent time to make this drink from India  since the roses will be in bloom. Serves six to eight.
  • 5 large fragrant roses in full bloom
  • 2 quarts cold water
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 cups crushed pineapple, fresh or canned
  • Finely crushed ice
  • Extra rose petals
Choose only roses not sprayed with pesticides. Wash the roses and shake off the excess water. Carefully take off the petals and put them in a large bowl.

Pour the cold water over them and let stand in a dark, but not refrigerated, place for about four hours. Strain out the petals, saving the water. Dissolve the sugar in the lemon juice and add this to the rose wter. Stir in the pineapple.

When ready to serve, pour over crushed ice and top with a rose petal in each glass.
