Thanks for sharing these recipes .Thirst quenchers are excellent during the summer months to beat the heat and refresh both mind and body .Plus ,it is much better to go for natural drinks as they are way healthier than fuzzy drinks or soft drinks

Thanks a lot abida , fresh fruit in any form is mouthwatering!
Hi anil,I too prefer to have liquid diet during summer months.One can make so many different variety of soups and thirst quenchers and fill oneself up!
Hi gaurisood, most welcome !I too feel that natural thirst quenchers,punches and drinks prepared at home are far better than the ones bought from shop. It is also much better than drinking aerated water..
