Here I have 3 refreshing, cooling and hydrating summer drinks that you will love! Ginger Ale, Ice cream Soda and Cucumber Lemonade! Which one is your favorite!?


    Ginger Ale

  • Ice cream soda

  • Cucumber lemonade


    Ginger Ale

  1. Peel and roughly chop around 50 grams or half a cup of ginger 
  2. Place that in a grinder jar and grind to a coarse paste
  3. Next, add two cups of water to a pot and set the pot on medium heat 
  4. Add in the ginger paste and let the mix come up to a boil
  5. Once it starts to boil lower the heat and place the lid on. Let this simmer for approximately 15 minutes 
  6. Simmering for 15 minutes makes sure that all the juices of the ginger are completely infused into the water
  7. Strain it
  8. Pour that back into the pot and add half a cup of brown sugar (you can also use white granulated sugar if you wish)
  9. Set the pot on medium heat and stir until all the sugar dissolves
  10. Boil this solution for approximately 10 minutes or till it reaches a nice thick syrupy consistency
  11. Cool it down and pour it into a jar
  12. Make sure to place an airtight lid on it
  13. You can store this in the refrigerator for up to a month
  14. Now let’s make ginger ale!
  15. Pour one or two tablespoons of the syrup and top it with some sparkling water or soda.
  16. Squeeze some fresh lime juice or lemon juice, add mint leaves and ice if you like!
  17. Ice cream Soda

  18. We’ll start with two scoops of vanilla ice cream
  19. To that we’ll add a little bit of sparkling water or soda and some vanilla extract
  20. Let the ice cream melt a little and mix it in with the sparkling water
  21. Top with more sparkling water
  22. Cucumber lemonade 

  23. Peel and dice one medium sized cucumber and add it to a blender jar.
  24. Squeeze one lemon and add six to seven mint leaves, a pinch of salt, some honey (you could substitute with sugar as well) half a cup of chilled water, and blend till it’s completely smooth
  25. Strain it (if you blend it well you’ll barely have any residue left)
  26. Add ice, one slit green chilli (yeah for some kick), a little bit of soaked sabja seeds or basil seeds and then add the juice.
  27. Top with some mint leaves and done!
