Sugarcane & Water Chestnut Refreshing Drink - ideal for cooling body heat and nourish the lungs 马蹄竹蔗水 - 清热润肺，下火去燥
My mom used to cook this with additional fresh sugar cane and she used the whole water chestnut without peeling off the skin. Just smashed and cook. I like to eat the cooked water chestnut but I find it hard to peel after cooked, so my version is to use peeled water chestnut. ;)
Ingredients: (Yield 2 servings)
1 pack of Sugar Cane (ready mix)
8 Water Chestnut
4 sections Fresh Sugarcane (optional, washed and cut)
1.5 litre Hot Water
Some Rock Sugar to taste
