Diwali Drinks

Indian Lemonade (002)

As part of the celebration of Diwali, we tried our hand at making a drink that is traditionally drank during this Hindu holiday: nimbu pani. This refreshing little tipple is often referred to as Indian lemonade as the main ingredient is lemon juice. We tried a few different recipe varieties, but everyone agreed that their favourite was the minty nimbu pani which only had a simple recipe; freshly squeezed lemon juice, mint leaves, sugar, chilled water, and a little pinch of salt. A very simple but wonderfully refreshing drink indeed.
