Gulp down a chilled glass of fresh lime soda to quench the thirst on a hot day. Its refreshing combination of saltiness and sweetness keeps fatigue at bay!
It’s raining cats and dogs here in Kerala, but it’s pretty hot too. The first thing I do upon waking up is, make tonnes of fresh lime soda and store it in the refrigerator for the day. It is one thing which all four of us – Dad, Mom, my sister and I love to indulge in. Because yes, it keeps you cool, refreshed and hydrated – without excess sugar.
Take a sip of this Fresh Lime Soda and you can get an explosion of flavors inside your mouth. You get the tangy kick of lemon followed by a sharp zing of salt and sweet with bubbling delight.
This energizing drink is popular across the length and breadth of India. It is available in almost every cafe, restaurant or a streetside shop. You can find the use of roasted cumin when you go North. You can also opt for a lime soda with salt and/or sugar. But trust me, add them both and be ready for a celebration of flavors in your mouth! You can also choose to add ginger or mint for that zesty twist!
How to make Fresh Lime Soda – Kerala Style!
In Kerala, you can find those tiny shops along the road that serve you a chilled glass of lime soda. It’s fascinating to watch how this beverage is prepared. They add sugar syrup to freshly squeezed lime in a tall glass, followed by crushed ice and salt. Usually, when you prepare at home you would add sugar instead of sugar syrup.
Here’s how I make!
