I look for a bit of variety in my summer coolers. Blueberry masala limeade with home grown mint is my answer and has a perfect twist. I can sip on these the whole day. I got inspired by Indian street vendors selling masala “nimbu pani”. What takes me 10-15 minutes, our roadside vendors do it in a minute. And it’s refreshing.
Well, anything that has mango is welcome. Desserts, drinks, frozen treats, pickles, etc., the list is endless. The fact that mangoes can combine with other exciting ingredients to create something new makes them the ‘King’ of fruits. It is a staple fruit right now in my fruit basket.
for mulled wine online, and all of them are delicious. This one has jaggery, making it a tad bit healthy compared to the others. I prepare mulled wine with leftover wine.
never met a soul who dislikes watermelon. We love snacking on it as a fruit or in a salad. The juice gets loads of makeovers with fruits, soda, or juice of different fruits. It is compatible with different fruit juices, especially citrus, and works beautifully. I love using the clear juice in mocktails. Watermelon margarita and cosmopolitan are a few of my favorites.
tarted with something else in mind and ended up creating a perfect summer drink with a zing. Mango ginger limeade is sweet, fizzy, and has a kick from the ginger. I wanted to prepare iced tea with some leftover mango puree but instead prepared limeade.
ummertime calls for loads of refreshing glasses of lemonade. Especially during the summer vacation after a short trip to the pool, requests for lemonade are difficult to ignore. Grapefruit honey lemonade is one of my favorite ways of enjoying lemonade.
This year my go to drink is a spicy mango cooler. Easy to prepare and looks elegant. Once you keep the base ready, it’s all about assembling the drink.
With the temperature hitting 40 degrees, I crave chilled drinks on weekends. I usually go for a glass of iced coffee or tea. However, last year the whole world got introduced to “Dalgona.” The classic Dalgona is off-limits for the kiddo, and he tends to feel left out. This time I had to think of something that he usually ignores but would happily drink with a chunk of ice and a fancy straw.
Raspberry sorbet adds the perfect sweetness and tartness to this cocktail.
I had to share this recipe for a rich, creamy hot chocolate along with the goodness of nut butter. You can omit the marshmallows to keep it guilt-free (relatively guilt-free, I must say). However, I suggest you keep them, though. The nut butter adds to the texture and flavor of hot chocolate.
