Short description- in case u r in a hurry
We first read about chunnilal sharbat from a post by cuisine & nutrition consultant, Sangeeta Khanna, whom we have been following on social media since more than a decade.

First we messaged on sharbat wale’s Instagram handle. We got a reply to place order on a WhatsApp number. The list of sharbats was also shared on Instagram DM.
We shifted the chat to WhatsApp number +919950999990 (you can connect directly with them here).
The conversation was happening in Hindi words using English letters. The replies by sharbat wala had ‘Ji hukum’ as ‘yes, it will be done’ & words like ‘dhanyawad sa’ (like ji in hindi). It was so nice to hear this sitting at home – it reminded us of our multiple trips to Rajasthan in general & to Bikaner years back.
The interaction was very seamless – we paid, product got shipped, we were informed, we got the shipment. This happened in two subsequent shipments as well.
Loved the sharbats – they are addictive.

We got the following sharbats :
Red Rose (gulab) – as compared to the popular rooh afza, this sharbat was way less sweet, thickness of the liquid much lesser & the flavours were many times more. The after-flavour stayed with the senses till almost five minutes after finishing the drink.
Tried this with water, with cold milk & with lassi. Loved the water & ice combination. Bowled over with the gulab lassi. Rate it 4.5/5
White rose (safed gulab) was again super high on flavour. Enjoyed this with water. Rate it 4.5/5
Bela – the best of the lot – unmissable unusual flavour for a drink. Rate it 4.95/5
Khus – this was very good to taste, with water. I also made a cocktail with this & that turned out to be fab. Rate it 4/5
Chandan was very subtle. It was nice. Rate it 3/5
Thandai – tried this with water & with cold milk. Absolutely impressed with the Cold milk combo. Not so sweet, hot aftertaste, High on flavours. Rate it 4.75/5
Badam kesar – tried this with water & with cold milk. Absolutely impressed with the Cold milk combo. Not so sweet, hot aftertaste, High on flavours. Rate it 4.75/5
We also got gulab jal from them. Will use it in making sweets at home. Smells perfect.
Overall rating of sharbats averages out to 4.4/5
Loving it & got hooked to it – our doctor is not going to like this:)
