Store poppy seed squash in a bottle and mix with water for a refreshing summer drink.
3 cups water
4 cups sugar
1 tsp khus essence(vetiver)
1-2 tsp green colour
Mix sugar and water and stir over low heat, till sugar is dissolved.
When dissolved, let it come to a boil and cook till thickened - one thread consistency. That is take a drop of the mixture and press between your thumb and forefinger, a thread should form when you separate the fingers.
