Some days back , I had a road-side drink made of lemon, tulsi and black pepper. They added some secret mixture in it which had mint too. Though it was too sweet for me, but flavour was unforgettable and super refreshing. I was amazed that such a drink was actually served on road-side. Here goes my modified version of that drink.
Tulsi and mint actually cools down your body. Tulsi leaves a refreshing taste on your tongue and throat. You can have some tulsi leaves everyday. I have used tinned pineapple juice as sweetener here. But you can replace it with fresh fruits which are sweet like watermelon, grapes, pineapple or some oranges. I hope you guys like it!
