1.LASSI: Lassi is a traditional South Asian beverage, originally from Punjab, India, Pakistan made by blending yogurt with water, salt, and spices until frothy. The Lassi of the Punjab sometimes uses a little milk and is topped with a thin layer of malai, a clotted cream, also known as Devonshire cream. Lassis are enjoyed chilled as a hot-weather refreshment.



 2.JAL JEERA: Jal Jeera is an Indian beverage. In Hindi, "Jal" means water and "Jeera" means cumin. Jal Jeera is similar to lemonade and also is a popular refreshment in summer. It is generally served as an appetizer as it is intended to wake up the taste buds.

The Cumin makes this drink special as it aids in digestion. The mint has a cooling effect. One of the main ingredients is black salt or rock salt which acts as a digestive.


Jal Jeera is extremely popular in Northern India because of its cooling properties against the extreme heat there. It is generally served with appetizers before a meal, but is also drunk between meals. It is a healthy, no sugar, no artificial flavours drink and hence is loved by weight watchers as a cool alternative to the cola's.


3.NIMBU PANI : Lemonade is a soft drink that is made with lemons. In India it is commonly referred to as "Nimbu Paani" meaning "Lemon Water" and is sold by many streets vendors, especially in North India.

Good luck getting people behind this one. Though you make some VERY fascinating points, you’re going to have to do more than bring up a few things that may be different than what we’ve already heard. What are trying to say here? What do you want us to think? It seems like you can’t really get behind a unique thought. Anyway, that’s just my opinion. Over the legal limit
