Zair – Lime Mocktail/Cocktail

Submitted by: 4ever4you 

I encountered this drink in an obscure Doon Club in northern India in my teenage years – wasn’t allowed to drink alcohol. The taste, and especially the name (sounds like Zeher – poison), stayed in my memory. I finally recreated that excellent drink based on what I remember it tasted like.


1. Frozen Limeade concentrate (NOT lemonade)
2. 7up or Sprite or GingerAle chilled
3. Kala Namak (Black Salt) or Chaat Masala
4. Ice
5. Dash of Vodka – optional


1. Partially defrost the frozen limeade and add 2 tablespoons of the concentrate to a glass.
2. Add 1/4 teaspoon of Kala Namak (Black Salt) or Chaat Masala
3. Add a dash of vodka – if you want
4. Stir
5. Add chilled 7up or Sprite or GingerAle
6. Add Ice
