Soda Lemonade: Beat the Heat This Summer With This Refreshing Drink


Summers are here already and you are looking for thanda thanda cool cool drinks to beat the heat. This fizzy lemonade is quick to process and gives you a refreshing treat when you are looking to get some respite from the scorching heat.

The Story Behind the Fizzy Lemonade

I was at mom's place when the weather took a sudden turn, with the chill in the temperature giving way to the hot winds.

Soda lemonade

Perhaps we knew on my cousin:s wedding day that it was the beginning of the hot weather. With summers, we start to experiment with different cooling drinks. Today I have come up with a summer cooler prepared by my younger sibling, my brother.

While we would be busy with our professional commitments, he would come once to serve us this refreshing glass of lemonade. How sweet!

He is too fond of soda drinks, so is his wife. He prepares this soda mint lemonade often, though I have never brought soda bottles home. But this drink is refreshing for those scorching hot days when the sun is in full ablaze.

Lightly sweet, little tangy, and bursting with bubbles is how I define this lemonade fizz, which will help quench your thirst on these bright, hot, and sunny days.

The best thing about this lemonade recipe is that you can experiment with ingredients- add more or less sugar, play with spices of your choice, and enjoy a refreshing summer cooler to beat the heat.  When I asked my brother the process of preparing this lemonade, he was quite explicit with the ingredient amounts. Let's see how my brother makes the soda mint lemonade.

I do not claim this is the healthiest drink on earth, but it is still better than the soda and carbonated drinks that you get outside, which are loaded with sugar and artificial sweeteners and flavorings.

Perhaps this fizzy lemonade is not for those with diabetes, cardiovascular and BP problems. Soda can be a health hazard, so be wary of its use in your day-to-day life. Soda drinks can raise your risk of obesity and diabetes.

However, this one is a better alternative to carbonated drinks if you are looking for a fizzy lemonade to serve guests on a hot summer day.

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body.  Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking.
