Sekanjabin (sometimes spelled sekanjubin or sekanjamin, among others) is a delicious and refreshing Persian drink that dates as far back as the 10th century AD. The syrup lasts indefinitely, and is also nice to drizzle over fresh fruit, so it's great to have around. Enjoy!

Delicious!-01 Aug 2015

I tried this with red wine vinegar and gives it a lovely deeper colour. Great for warm day.-30 May 2015

I used half white sugar and half brown sugar. After straining off the ginger, it was delicious to eat! When adding the water to make the drink, I found that a 4 to 1 ratio was best!-07 Sep 2011
