Sahklep or sachlav is a popular middle eastern winter comfort drink infused with rose water. Typically made from orchid tubers, it is hot thick and filled with goodies, like nuts and coconut and raisins and lots of cinnamon. My version is made non dairy with coconut or almond milk, but you can use any milk you prefer and unless you are lucky enough to get your hands on the real stuff, we use cornstarch to thicken. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
