Water Chestnut Drink with Sugar Cane

Water Chestnut & Sugar Cane Drink

This is a super simple, cooling and refreshing drink that will help quench thirst and beat the heat. This is one of my favourite tasting cooling drinks to combat our hot weather here. I find sugar cane really difficult to chop, so I buy pre-cut ones at NTUC as well as the market.

(Makes about 3 glasses)

– 400g sugar cane/bamboo cane (chopped to shorter lengths to fit cooking pot)
– 2 tbsp barley
– 400g water chestnut (scrubbed & skin removed)
– 2 litres water
– rock sugar, to taste (I use about 50g)

Water Chestnut & Sugar Cane Drink
Key Ingredients – sugar cane, barley and water chestnuts

1. In a pot, put all the ingredients except the rock sugar. Bring to a boil.
2. Reduce flame and simmer for about 1 hour.
3. During the last 10 minutes of boiling, add rock sugar to taste. Leave a few sugar cane for garnishing and discard the rest.
4. Pour the drink into serving glasses together with water chestnuts (don’t discard them, they are still crunchy), boiled barley and 1 sugar cane in each glass for garnishing.

    U mean there is pre-cut sugar cane at the NTUC? Which part? At the vegetables side (in the fridge)?
