Nimbu Pani ….Lemon water ;-)

There are many times that we tend to forget the old classics which have served and quenched our thirst for thousands of years.  I remember making this in litres during the scorching summer days in Mumbai.  The only times I made this in South Africa was during the blistering hot days in January.  I am never one to complain about the weather, to me different seasons – inspire different seasonings 😉 during the colder days I would add ginger and use boiling water.  But to embrace and keep cool during this heat-wave, this is a very quick, and simple yet refreshing and thirst quenching summer drink.

So When life gives me Lemons…I just add RICE – SPICE or some ICE 🙂
