A refreshing drink for the summer from a classic flavour of mint leaves, cucumber and lemon with hint of Khus syrup.
In summers our body dehydrates faster and to hydrate it we need to intake plenty of fluids and liquids to keep our body fresh and cool. There are few particular summer produce that works as a perfect coolant for our body.

With appropriate cooling and digestive element, the mocktail ‘Green Lady’ is a must have this summer. Mojito is though an alcoholic drink as it contains a dash of rum, here I tried to make it's non alcoholic version.
