ABC is a top thirst-quencher on a hot Malaysian day

Air batu campur is a wonderfully refreshing crushed ice drink sold from dedicated kiosks throughout Malaysia. Originally containing just red beans, the refreshment, often shortened to ABC, may now contain condensed milk, palm sugar syrup, roasted peanuts, red beans, corn and cubes of cincau - a jelly made from black grass herb - all mixed with ice from a special ice-shaving machine.

Malaysia Tatler magazine recommends the "icy concoction" as a top thirst-quencher after a very hot day.
