Rooh Afza Lemonade

Rooh Afza (literally “nourishing the soul”) is a century-old concentrated mix of herbs, fruits, flowers and even a few vegetables. With its vibrant red color, this might not be your typical lemon-based beverage but if you squeeze the right amount of lemon in it, we guarantee you that it will awaken your senses, invigorate your body and possibly even become your all-time favorite summer addiction. Just mix together some water, sugar, Rooh Afza and lemon juice, serve it at a pool party or enjoy it on a lazy afternoon.

Buy a bottle of Rooh Afza at: Lulu Hypermarket or any local Indian or Pakistani grocery store.  

Elderflower Lemonade

This summer why not take your senses on a little adventure by trying the floral and fragrant stylings of elderflower lemonade. These small white starry flowers are believed to have medicinal characteristics and are widely used in beverages due to their unique flavoring properties. On a hot summer day, this sweet and tart blend is the perfect solution to soothe your senses and energize your body.
