Some Pink Lemonade ?

Some Pink Lemonade ?

Pink Lemonade for you

As I look back at the history of the lemonade only one thing flashes in my mind – fond memories of my moms kitchen and practically every kitchen in India that I sneaked into to watch the most popular sherbet easily served ;our very own nimbu pani. As a kid somehow I always grew up with the idea that I could make enough money selling this refreshing drink at a fun fair stall a la characters of Archie comics.

Here’s the variation to the Pink Lemonade. This is a slight twist to what I enjoyed at my popular neighborhood cafe, then Tangy Tomato and now Chilies.

Making time : 7-10 minutes
