Recently during our trip to Kanyakumari, after a long walk and site seeing, we wanted to have something refreshing and thought of having soda, but the shopkeeper recommended us to have their nungu sharbhat.
Nungu Sharbhat is a natural coolant, which refreshes people during summer and also helps in digestion after a long day work. Also it’s very tasty and healthy to have, as nungu is a seasonal fruit and summer is about to go, give a try to this nungu sharbhat as soon as possible. I have prepared two versions of this sharbath both with soda/sparkling water and the regular one.
Taking it to Fiesta Friday #173 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner.

Making of Nungu Sharbath / Ice-Apple cooler / Toddy palm cooler –
