Zair – Lime Mocktail/Cocktail

I encountered this cocktail drink in an obscure Doon (Dehradun) Club in northern India in my teenage years, mock-tail because I wasn’t allowed to drink alcohol. The taste, and especially the name (sounds like Zeher, or poison), stayed in my memory. I finally recreated that excellent drink based on what I remember it tasted like. It tastes fantastic with or without alcohol and is the perfect choice to serve with an Indian meal.

Chai (Tea)

There are different ways to make chai (or tea) ranging from plain (milk, water, sugar and tea leaves) to masala (the plain with a kick!) and anywhere in between. You can buy tea masala in packets from any Indian store.
