Maps, drinks, conviviality and all that jazz!
Diwali is just days away and the celebrations have already begun.
And if you’re ready to ring in the festivities by hosting a card game in your home sweet home, we’re here to help you set the bar menu!
Here are five non-alcoholic beverages you can make and serve to your guests.
Mix fresh orange juice with a little lemon juice in a mixing bowl.
Now take glasses and add ice cubes to them. Pour the mixture into them until they are half full.
Then pour soda into it with a pinch of salt.
Garnish them with a few crushed mint leaves and orange slices, and if needed, add more ice cubes. Easy and tasty, right?
You would need almonds, cashews, pistachios, melon seeds, poppy seeds, dried rose petals, fennel seeds, black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, raisins and a little sugar.
Soak all these ingredients in water except milk and sugar for four to six hours.
Once done, add the sugar and grind them with milk to form a smooth paste.
Use a muslin cloth to drain it and serve chilled.
To make a non-alcoholic pomegranate mojito, divide the pomegranate seeds in an ice cube tray a day ahead.
Cover the tray with water and freeze.
Now use a rolling pin to crush the mint and lime until they release juice.
Put this juice in a pitcher and top it with pomegranate juice, lemonade, and club soda.
Add the pomegranate ice cubes, strain and serve chilled.
Take a jug and add apple slices, lemon slices, cinnamon sticks and star anise.
Now pour apple juice, lemon juice and honey into it. Mix well and refrigerate for one hour.
Once cooled, take glasses and add ice cubes to them.
Fill half with chilled juice and fill the rest with club soda.
Garnish with apple slices and serve.
To make lavender lemonade, combine water and sugar in a saucepan and heat it up.
Add honey and dried lavender to it and let the mixture steep like tea.
Now is the time to strain the mixture and remove the dried lavender.
Then mix this mixture with lemon juice, water and ice in a pitcher.
To achieve a darker shade, add edible color.
