This drink is not from Bandung. I don't know why it's called Bandung, but it seems Mee Bandung also does not exist in Bandung. How about Nasi Padang? Go to Padang in Indonesia, you can't find any!
Hmm... Weird hah? Anyway, it does not matter where the origin is, these drinks are very popular here in Malaysia and my kids love them as well as me. They are also very easy to mix. You just need lots of sugar and rose flavoured culourings plus a few other things. I have a simple recipe below for those who prefer to make homemade syrup. Do try!
10 ml of rose flavoured colourings
1 kg sugar
2 screwpine leaves, tied together
1 cinnamon stick
3 cardamon pods
1. Boil 3-4 litres of water in a pot.
2. When it is boiling, add red colouring, sugar, screwpine leaves, cloves, cinnamon stick and cardamons.
3. Cook until the sugar is dissolved and until the water has thicken a little bit.
4. Let it cool before putting it in a jar and keep refrigerated.
5. To serve, add one portion of the syrup to five portions of water, or as desired.
To make Bandung Syrup - just add a portion of rose syrup in a glass, add 3 portions of condensed milk and finish off with water and ice.
