This ginger based lemonade, a great twist on a regular lemonade is my favourite one which is very simple drink to beat the heat on these hot Summer days. You may infuse it with any liquer specially with vodkas, tastes great always. But here I made it as a non-alcoholic drink. Mint added definitely some extra flavour and aroma in it. This distinctive drink is a wonderful change of refreshment from regular tea or coffee.


1/2" Ginger (peeled and sliced)
1 Lemon (cut into 4 pieces)
7-8 Mint Leaves (dried)
1/4 tsp Black Salt
1/2 tsp Jaljeera Powder
600 ml Soda (chilled)
Few Ice Cubes Crushed
2 tbsp Sugar Syrup


Cut ginger into thin slices.
Take ginger, lemon and mint leaves in pestal and mortar. Add 2 tbsp water in it. Grind coarsely, a nice aroma comes out from lemon, mint and ginger. 
Stain the juice and set aside.
Take two equal sized glasses. Divide stained juice, black salt, jaljeera powder, sugar syrup, crushed ice cubes and soda in each equally.
Stir both glasses nice. and serve chill.

Serves: 2

I prefer 'punch' mostly and this yummy fruit drink 'Masala Mantra' is the perfect way to cool off and impress your guests at your gatherings this Summer. I added mint flavor and garnished with lemon slices for a pretty finish. Pounded black pepper and tabasco sauce make it more flavourful and tasty. This refreshing cooler makes any barbecue or Summer party a little more special, though it is totally alcohol-free, just made with mix match of different fruit juices. Here is a delicious mocktail, just try out this season, will surely relish it.

200 ml Mango Juice
100 ml Guava Juice
100 ml Pineapple Juice
1 tsp Black Pepper Powder (freshly pounded)
2 tsps Tabasco Sauce
1 tsp Finely Chopped Mint Leaves
8 Crushed Ice Cubes
Few Ice Cubes & Lemon Rings For Garnishing

Shake all (except those garnishing ingredients) ingredients very well for 3-4 minutes.
Pour juice equally in two collins glasses.
Garnish with Lemon rings and ice cubes. Serve immediately. Enjoy this refreshing mocktail!!!

Citrus Watermelon Granita is a flavorsome granita with full of vitamin C. This semi-frozen dessert is very refreshing for Summer days. Serve this dessert in chilled glass to prevent the granita from melting too quickly, while it's served. A classic Italian dish mandarin orange granita here mix-matched with simple Asian ingredients, watermelon and fresh lemon (citric acid). My first encounter with granita and this was something truely amazing!!!

4 Cups Watermelon Cubes (seedless)
2 Oranges
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Small Lemons
3/4 tsp Lemon Zest


Blend and prepare juice of 2 oranges. In a sauce pan, heat orange juice with sugar, boil till sugar fully dissolve in it. Switch off the heat and set aside to cool.

Take out the juice from 2 lemons. Keep it aside.

Now pour orange juice in a air tight container.

Puree of watermelon chunks in a blender until smooth.

Pour watermelon puree on the top of orange juice.

Add lemon juice and lemon zest.

Mix nicely.

Cover with the lid and close the container. Refrigerate for 2 hours for the first step.

Gently scrape the mixture with a fork to break up the ice crystals and keep it light and fluffy.

Close the lid again and refrigerate for another 2-3 hours.

Scrape the granita into chilled elegant glasses and decorate it as you wish.

Serve immediately.
Serves: 4

NOTE: Taste your watermelon and orange juice first. It will tell you, how much sugar is to be added in it. The fork helps to create ice crystals with slushy consistency.
