Sour Plum Drink

Sour Plum Drink

Sour plum drink (酸梅水) is one of my favourite local drink! Even though this drink is quite common here, not every drink stall sell this. I think I am more likely to find this drink at the more traditional drink stalls located at hawker centres. I tasted really good ones at Pek Kio and Beach Road hawker centres. Back at home, this drink is not difficult to make at all. Not only is it an excellent thirst quencher for beating the heat, it is also a great appetizer drink (开胃) and goes well with spicy food.

    I think I had something like this in a pho restaurant once. It was really refreshing — thx for the recipe!

    Oh my gosh! I’m so glad you brought up the calamansi in here. Back in the Philippines, we have a similar common drink…it’s like the lemonade of the Philippines. Actually, I am growing some calamsi and they are bearing A TON of limes! I’d love to try your version!
