Sahlab is a Egyptian Eastern hot creamy drink made from orchid tubers called Salep. The drink is popular in countries such as Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, and Egypt. It is typically served hot, flavored with cinnamon, and garnished with nuts or coconut flakes. Sahlab is also traditionally served during the winter months, particularly during the Islamic month of Ramadan and during festivals like Christmas and Hanukkah. The drink has a unique, sweet, floral flavor and is often made with milk or cream to give it a velvety texture. Sahlab can also be thickened with cornstarch or rice flour, which adds a smooth and silky consistency to the drink.
