Lemonade | Nimbu Pani

For this weeks blogging marathon I'm showcasing " How to perfect " recipes. Today I'm sharing recipe for "Lemonade" adapted from hereCheck this Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#38.
Lemonade | Nimbu Pani

Summer in India is exhausting with high temperatures for months with no hope. In my recent experience I have seen temps going up to 48C. You have to hydrate yourself with thirst quencher's like coconut water, buttermilk, jal jeera & their comes our favorite Lemonade or Nimbu Pani. We don't call it a lemonade but it has it's own regional names depending on the language, but the mix is almost the same.
