Frankly, there seems to be nothing novel about the ingredients used in this drink. It is just a traditional combination of hare chai ki patti, pudina and lemonade! But, simple as it sounds, this quick-fix drink is just the right beverage to complement a Thai meal.


Relish this drink chilled, with lots of ice cubes. Aerated drinks (with sugar added) give you nothing but ugly calories, but this drink uses sugar-free soda and sugar substitutes, making it a much better choice for diabetics.
