Delhi-style Cold Coffee
If you think this a strange name for a drink, you may not be alone! The reason I named it this (I was considering Connaught Place Cold Coffee!) is that this is where I am told it originated. For all it's fancy name you'd think it was tough to make. You couldn't be farther from the fact. Delhi-style Cold Coffee takes all of 2 minutes to prepare! Enjoy...

Badam Milk
I love this Badam Milk! Delicately flavored with cardamom, the nuts in this chilled, cooling drink don't just make it tasty, they pack a mighty nutritious punch too! I often make it for my son...he loves it just as much as me. Cold Badam Milk is a great summer cooler but if you use hot milk to make it, it's a great winter drink too!

Gulab Ka Sharbat
As a kid I used to love to eat rose petals! Not only do they taste good (I definitely thought so), they freshen the mouth. On a hot summer's day, a tall, frosty glass of Rose Sharbat can really cool you off. Another nice way to have it is in a glass of cold milk. Yummy!
