Lemon barley drink

Lemon Barley Drink

Lemon barley drink (柠檬薏米水) is another super-easy, refreshing drink that is perfect for the hot summer weather. The barley drink tastes good with or without lemon, and I usually add some lemon juice/lemon slice before serving for  added Vitamin C and colour. Winter melon sugar complement the taste of barley more than rock sugar in my opinion, but it is not as sweet, so you can add a small amount of rock sugar, to taste, to sweeten up if you like. Barley drink has cooling properties and perfect for combating the hot weather. I remember that my mum used to make me a whole water bottle of barley water to bring to school. This is a very mild “liang teh” which can be drank often – even daily.

      Just a little will do. A few drops to a tablespoon because pure lemon juice is very sour. Start small and adjust the amount to your liking.

    My mum used to cook this but it was purely barley & candied melon. I tried your recipe and my hubby loves it – the pandan fragrance and the slice of lemon makes him happy! Tks for sharing. :)
