This refreshing drink is an absolutely must for summers. In Kolkata, you can get it near any malls and supermarket. It works like magic to beat the heat and leaves you refreshed. I have tried to re-create that taste at home and my hubby loved it. Both of us are a fan of this drink. Its an addiction I must say, so restrain yourself from drinking lots as it it said to give gas problems if consumed too much.
