Please read thru at your discretion. We won't be held liable if you turn into a Devdas after reading this, Though do share Paro's address with us! ( added by the wifey - What about Chandramukhi!!! Good point! How could I forget her!! ) Starting with some of mine - 1) Captain and Cola - Possibly the greatest find since 2009 for myself. Though I was not a regular on it, but towards the end of 2010 it became the de-riguer. Best had with lots of ice, a dash of Diet Coke and some water and a lemon slice for flavour. 2) Chhaach - Buttermilk - is only the next best thing after Captain, since it helps get over with the Captain's influence, and helps keep me cool as well during hot summer days. 3) Kokum and Soda - A recent find, however is great in summers as a cooler. Kokum fruit/flower extract, mixed with Soda and topped with ICE. Great grear refresher, and much more organic than other options. 4) Forever Favourite - Rooh-ofza!!! - That glass bottle ( prone to shattering easily ) is still the same, the damn sticker has not changed, and neither has the excessive sugar content!. But you aint born in India / lived in India if you've not had it!!! In milk or water, with lemon or salt, there have been endless variations on it, but Rooh-Ofza still rules in my books!!! 5) Shikanji ( Lemon soda ) - The best at Jain Shikanji in ModiNagar U.P. , however still the best beverage to have. Natural, with lots of spices, that ensure your body salt levels stay intact during summers. Muah! 6) Coffee - Something that I got hooked onto during my recent trip to U.S. However the hangover has mellowed down slightly ( purely due to the same flavor/feel not being available ). But I would rate South Indian Filter coffee as the next best thing to happen! RajaPraveen - Still remember that coffee we had in Chennai!!
