Fill a tablespoon with rose syrup then hold the tablespoon at an angle against the edge of the glass and allow the syrup to drip slowly as you turn the glass – this step is optional and for decorative purposes
Add the basil seed mixture into the glass followed by the vermicelli – depending on your personal preference you can alter the amounts of basil seeds and vermicelli for each glass.
Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and then pour the rose syrup mixture until the glass is filled before repeat with the remaining ingredients
