This can be turned into a full-on cocktail by adding a shot of Vodka or Tequila. I kept it alcohol free. And of course, how it can not be without any Indian twist. I added some roasted cumin powder to give it that Indian kick taste-wise. As far as the recipe goes, it’s very simple and quick to put together. So, if you have any friends coming over during the weekend, you can fancy up your menu by brining in this drink. Or you can simply enjoy it during the lazy Sunday afternoon while you soak in your favorite book or TV show.

Speaking of TV shows, our lives right now are divided into two parts – the night we watch Game of Thrones and the nights when we do not watch Game of Thrones. Yes, the house is that crazy about the show. April has become so exciting with the series!
