Array Of Summer Coolers...!!!

Author: Siddhi Shirsat // Category: ,

Summer has reached its peak so i am posting some refreshing and cooling mocktails and shakes which are made by combining different flavours.


A very refreshing and eyecatChing mocktail made by using khus syrup and lemonade gives a very refreshing and cooling effect in summer.

500 ml lemonade
2-3 table spoons of khus syrup
2 table spoon lemon juice
pinch of salt
ice cubes

Mix together khus syrup, salt and lemon juice. Add crushed ice and lemonade and mix.Pour in two glasses and add ice cubes and serve immediately.


Well how can i miss the very famous mango shake in season of mangoes.This is a very simple yet refreshing shake.


1 ripe mango( or 1 cup canned mango pulp)
300 ml chilled milk
cardomom powder
ice cubes(optional)

If using ripe mango, puree it.I use Goan special breed of mango called "mankurad" which is very famous in Goa
Mix everthing in a blend and blend to a smooth shake.Add more milk if its too thick.Serve chilled.

A delightful and filling mocktail with strawberries, bananas, pineapple, and coconut milk.Its a very unusuall combo , but taste is really good.


1 medium ripe banana mashed
1/2 cup strawberry crush
200ml coconut milk
2 tablespoon fresh cream
200 ml fresh pineapple juice
2 table spoon chopped fresh pineapple
few fresh mint leaves
canned cherries
crushed ice


Take the banana pieces, strawberry crush in a blender.Add coconut milk and blend till smooth. Add pineapple cubes to the banana mixture, keeping a few aside for garnish and blend again.Add fresh cream and pineapple juice and ice. Blend further. Crush few leaves of mint and add to the mixture. Pour into glasses. 
Serve chilled.


This refreshing mocktail with a little Goan touch  by using kokum syrup and spiced with ginger and cumin along with coconut water is a very  colling and refreshing one.


100 ml tender coconut water
150 ml pineapple juice
2 table spoon kokum syrup
2 tea spoon ginger juice
2 table spoon lemon juice
1 tea spoon roasted cumin powder
few pieces of pineapple
powdered sugar(optional)


Take tender coconut water in a bowl.. Add lemon juice, ginger juice, cumin powder, pineapple juice and mix it well.Then add kokum syrup and pineapple pieces and mix it.Add powdered sugar is required.Chill it and serve.
