It is quite common to add saffron to kheer, mithai and milky drinks too. But, here is an outta-this-world drink that focuses totally on saffron. Since the Saffron Lemon Drink has no milk, the unique flavour and pleasant colour of saffron steal the show!

A dash of lemon juice helps to highlight the attributes of saffron even better, making this a rejuvenating, must-try recipe. Do not use more than the said amount of saffron, otherwise the flavour will get overpowering.
