No, this post does not contain instructions on how to play golf while riding a horse. Sorry.
Polo, as I learned from the terrific blog, Syrian Foodie in London, is the name for a cool specialty beverage from Damascus, which, I can tell you from experience, can get very, VERY hot.
As you can see from the recipe below, the ingredients are fairly straight-forward and would likely be found on any given Friday in my kitchen, save one component: orange blossom water.
4 cups water
Juice of 5 lemons
6 tablespoons sugar
1.5 cups fresh mint leaves, rinsed and drained
1 tsp. orange blossom water
But, lo and behold, I had picked up a bottle during my visit to Jerusalem Halal Market.
Blend and strain.
Piquant, tart, and oh-so-refreshing.
