Masala Lemonade - A Refreshing Summer Drink

One of my favorite drinks in summer is the masala lemonade. Its cool and refreshing. Not just that, it comes with a lot of health and beauty benefits too. Most of the food we have are acidic in nature leading to a lot of health problems. While both lemon and water help in clarifying our system removing toxins and making our skin glow.

In my college days, I used to have lots of Masala lemonade to cool myself from the scorching heat. And still do in summers. I just love it. It gives such a soothing effect. You can also use sugar syrup to make the process quick by saving your time in dissolving sugar.
