It’s one hot summer this year and the need to drink liquids has never been more pertinent. You can see vendors selling all sorts of chilled drinks on the streets. Plum juice has been quite an old friend of summer season. Almost every street corner has a vendor shouting “Aloo bukhare ka sharbat lelo” (buy plum juice). Ever wonder why? it’s because plums have a natural cooling effect on your body, not to mention they taste divine. We did a bit of experimenting and found out that plums taste great with lemons hence, we present to you the Plum Lemonade:

Brown Sugar
Black Pepper
Ice Cubes

Squeeze some lemon juice
cut plums in half
Add plums, sugar, pepper, water, lemon juice and ice in a blender
Blend well and serve chilled
