Hello Dear Friends,

With Ramadan, I continue to prepare different drink recipes at home at full speed. I started to concentrate especially on sherbets. Reyhan sherbet is prepared in a very different way from the sherbets we know. It is so practical and delicious that I think you will keep it in your fridge after your first try.

sherbet making

As you know, basil is the dark color brother of basil :) It is especially used in salads. I also enjoy using it in the service of some soups.


While preparing this sherbet, especially prefer dark purple basil. Remember, you will never boil this sherbet, if you boil it, its color will deteriorate. In addition, if you want to prepare more sherbet, you should definitely increase the amount of basil you will use, as the color will turn lighter pink as you increase the amount of water. I prefer lemon salt because sherbet doesn't cloud like lemon juice, but you can use whatever you want.

Also, when it comes to sherbet, my must-haves are cinnamon and cloves, you can add as much as you want.


Ingredients for Reyhan Sherbet Recipe

  • 1 bunch basil
  • 1 fingers missing granulated sugar from 2 glass of water (can be reduced upon request)

    Hi, I've been trying not to use sugar for a while. What can I add to sweeten it? Which is better, molasses, honey or natural fruit? thanks

    I used half a stick of cinnamon because cinnamon is such a strong flavor. It was very delicious and beautiful. Thanks for the recipe.

    Hello, Miss Nilay.
    Unfortunately, there is no fresh basil where I live. and I used to make your recipe a lot when I was in Turkey. I wonder if it can be made with dry basil in the same way?
    thank you so much.

      Hello, Elif, I think it can be brewed with dry basil as well. Maybe it won't have the same high aroma, but it's worth a try. love.

    Does it have to be lemon salt, can we make it with lemon?

      Maybe I wrote it in the cover letter, but it might seem a little blurry.

      Hello, Ebru, these are actually jars :) I don't remember where it is because I always buy glasses and bowls for the shoot, but I guess it was a market.
