Lemon, ginger, mint punch

This is one concentrate that is a must have in the freezer. Not only is it a refreshing drink, it’s also a good digestive. Mint and ginger aid digestion and lemon is rich in Vitamin C. The three together make for a deadly combo! This recipe shared by my friend Shalini Singh uses sugar. You may replace it with jaggery. If using sugar, do add a generous amount as this is a concentrate.


A small bunch of mint leaves

18 tsps sugar

Juice of three large lemons

2 inch piece of ginger

1/4 tsp salt

A pinch of Chaat masala to be added per glass while serving.


Grind the mint leaves, ginger, lemon juice, sugar and salt together to make a smooth paste. Store it in a small airtight container in the freezer compartment. Add a spoonful to a glass of chilled water, sprinkle with Chaat Masala and top it with a few ice cubes.

Note: those with diabetes can skip the sugar and jaggery and add a teaspoon of salt instead. Add a tsp of this concentrate to buttermilk. Tastes divine!
