    Poll for 27th April 2008 to 3rd May 2008

    Hello ILites

    With the sizzling summer, what is the best option other than a chilled drink to beat the heat? As the mercury rises in the thermometer, how do we keep our body temperature cool? With sun dehydrating all our body fluids and electrolytes, how could we replenish the same?

    Don't you all agree, summer is the best season for fruits and juices and Ice creams and Lemon sodas and what not. A chilled mango juice or a wedge of water-melon gives a refreshing effect to the body. A drive to the nearby Ice cream shop to indulge in a Chocolate Ice cream liberally garnished with nuts is the best thing to do on a Summer evening.
    BTW, ladies a request for all of you, try avoiding the aerated and bottled drinks and opt for the natural ones.

    Wait before you rush to the kitchen to make fresh and refreshing fruit juice or starting your car to the nearby Ice cream shop, cast your votes in the poll topic and let us know your comments.

    Spicy Buttermilk !!

    Hi Laxmi,

    Even though it is still Spring here in Virginia, at times it does become hot.
    Summer officially starts here only by the last week of June.

    Unfortunately, we don't get fresh tender coconut water where we live !

    Having said that, my favorite drink for the summer will be Buttermilk..that too spicy!!

    I usually blend some ginger, coriander, curry leaves, salt and asofoteida (hing), (grind them all in a blender) to the butter milk...it is simply mind blowing and healthy on a hot day. :cool2:

    In fact, I prefer carrying this in a big bottle..whenever we go for any outdoor trips during Spring/Summer.

    So I think my vote will come under the category "Others"? :)

    Cheers
    Krithika

    Dear Laxmi,

    I voted for 'others'..

    When I saw this poll topic in the homepage, I decided that I'm going to vote for buttermilk. I like it with salt, curry leaves and asafoetida.

    I like fruits in its original form.

    Hi,
    This poll reminds me of my college days...I love "Aam Panna" during summers.
    I was studying in Nagpur and we used to have exams from 2:00 to 5:00 int he afternoon...
    The temperatures used to soar upto 48 degrees..
    And when we came back fromt he exams...we would get chilled "Aam Panna" in the hostel mess. That was a treat !!!!
