Sometimes, no matter how much we wish we could, we just can't find the space for a stodgy dessert after a filling meal. But, never fear, if you find yourself in this situation, there are some awesome alternatives. Lebanese sweets, for instance, tend to be light and refreshing and often come in the form of joyous juices. The great thing about this option is that it is incredibly healthy as well. So, next time you feel like treating yourself to a sumptuous sweet, why don't you try ordering one of these delightful juices instead?
1. Jalab Syrup
While there are some amazing coffees at Karam Express, there are also some awesome juices. Some of these drinks are so original that you would struggle to find them anywhere other than the UAE. One of these, with an incredibly unique and interesting flavour, is the Jalab Syrup. This is a Middle Eastern drink made from carob, dates, grape molasses and rose water, smoked with Arabic incense. It's best to enjoy this one served over ice with pine nuts and raisins. The goodness of this is sure to wash away the stodginess of your meal and leave you raring to go!
2. Honey Melon Juice
While honey and lemon is a more traditional combination of flavours, there's a new guy looking to muscle in and upset this happy marriage. At Karam Beirut in the Mall of Emirates, the innovative inventors have come up with the honey melon juice. We have to say, they could be on to a winner here. You may not expect it but these two things work perfectly together and the result is a refreshing, feel-good, juice drink. Sorry, lemon, it's time for you to step aside – there's a new sheriff in town.
3. Passion Fruit Mojito (Mocktail)
If you want to finish off your meal in style but don't want to feel intoxicated, why not go for a delicious mocktail? You can get all the awesome flavours without any of the negative side effects, which sounds like a winning formula to us! At Harper's Bazaar Café, there's a wide selection of great breakfast items, desserts and juices, but it's the Mocktails section that gets us excited the most. Check out the Passion Fruit Mojito, which is a tropical twist on the more commonly known mint variation. Who needs alcohol when you could have this?
4. Lavender Lemonade
When life gives you lemons, make lavender lemonade. At least that's how the saying goes down at Craft Café. This trendy eatery aims to do things a little differently and it shows with some of the interesting choices on the menu. Here we've gone for the flowery and fruity Lavender Lemonade, which is a refreshing twist on the classic fizzy drink. This is one that could easily catch on elsewhere – you heard it here first.
