    With the quarantine confining us at home, we’ve been bestowed the gift of time to uncover our natural culinary talents. We made our way to the kitchen on a venture to make one of those delicious Ramadan classic drinks, only then do we discover our lack of that magic touch that makes a drink, well, drinkable.

    So we’ve decided to go back to basics, and do what we’re best at, which is creating a list of places that delivers you the all-time favourite classics to your doorstep:

     TBS:                                                                                  

    In addition to its extensive Ramadan menu that includes innovative variations on the season’s classic desserts, The Bakery Shop also offers three traditional drinks that come in a one-litre bottle at the price of 45LE each; tamarind, doum, and hibiscus. Order by calling 16679.

    Lychee:

    The renowned local juice bar boasts a broader selection that comes in two sizes; a litre bottle, and 330 ml. You’ll find doum, tamarind, carob, and hibiscus, each at prices of 30LE and 15LE – according to bottle size, as well as sobia (40LE and 20LE). A litre of qamar el din is 60LE, while a 330 ml bottle is 25LE.
