Algerian Lemonade with Orange Blossom Water (Cherbet) is a typical drink that is not missing from the table during Ramadan. And not only during Ramadan, but also during the warmer months, since it's a very refreshing drink. It's a sweet lemonade and the orange blossom water gives it a special touch.

The Lemonade (Cherbet) that cannot miss on your table

This Algerian Lemonade with Orange Blossom Water is very refreshing and delicious, which is why it is not usually missing from the tables during Ramadan. It's also very common to find it in our refrigerator during the warmer months.

The recipe to make this Algerian Lemonade that I share today is very easy to make, economical and quick to prepare. You need to have some lemons, water, sugar and orange blossom water. You can find orange blossom water in Arab food stores and it is very economical.

In this recipe I share the quantities to make 1.5 liters of Cherbet, so if you want to prepare more bottles to keep them cool in the refrigerator and consume them whenever you want, you can do it easily. I usually prepare several bottles at the same time because when there is lemonade in the refrigerator it is used up quickly.

How to make Algerian Lemonade (Cherbet)

The Algerian Lemonade with Orange Blossom Water is prepared in a moment, and each family prepares it in their own way. The recipe I share below is a very quick and easy way to prepare it. I also share it in such a way that you yourself can choose how much to make.

For every 1.5 liters of Algerian Lemonade you need:

  • 100 milliliters of lemon juice
  • 150 grams of white sugar
  • 15 milliliters of orange blossom water
  • water

If you don't have glass jugs or bottles, you can use plastic water bottles.

How to make Cherbet / Algerian Lemonade with Orange Blossom Water

In a 1.5 liter bottle (preferably using a funnel), add the sugar, lemon juice and approximately 300 milliliters of warm water (at a temperature that allows the sugar to dissolve easily). Put the lid on the bottle and shake until the sugar dissolves. Add the orange blossom water and fill the bottle to the top with cold or room temperature water.

Put it in the refrigerator to cool or if you're in a hurry, put it in the freezer.

Enjoy, Bismillah!
