Gulab Jamun Shot

Gulab Jamuns !!!! I know, any sweet person particularly any Indian starts salivating after hearing this dessert name 😉

A well known classic Indian sweet or dessert, gulab jamun is enjoyed in most festival celebrations. Traditionally these sweets are prepared from milk solids (khoya). The word gulab means Rose and jamun means an Indian berry. Since this sweet looks like berry and dunked in rose flavored sugar syrup, so the name of the sweet gets its name like that. 

But here I have come up with a cool beverage using those two ingredients, gulab (rose) and jamun (Black plum / Indian Blackberry) as Gulab Jamun Shot. This is the second recipe using jamun this year except gulping these berries as it is 😋. The first one was Virgin Jamun Margarita 😊 which I have posted some days before. Well the whole procedure of this gulab jamun shot is so simple and easy to prepare. No need of any cooking mode is here. Just blend all the ingredients to a smooth texture and enjoy during these hot summer days. Also these gulab jamun shots are a perfect party beverage and can be enjoyed by people of all ages. 

Since jamuns are in season so do try soon these gulab jamun shots. If you tried my recipe and enjoyed fully, then please share some pictures of your creation with me.
