Hello my beautiful people! Raise your hands if Summer knocked you flat this time around…man the humidity was insane! Paired with the heat it sapped all the energy out of one. I was attending a meeting one day and by the time I got back home I felt that I had run a mile in the heat whereas all I did was sit in one place the entire time! I am guilty of turning to the fizzies to quench my thirst when the heat gets especially brutal. Water just does not cut it and I crave the sweet cold combo that only a cola can offer. Well thankfully The Yellow Straw comes to one’s rescue once again! They have introduced a range of fruity lemonades that will help you beat the heat! You have the option to choose from 7 unique flavor pairings and they are priced at Rs. 70/- for a bottle. They always come up with the best pairings and I was really looking forward to the event. So was The Yellow Straw Midsummer Lemony Affair able to offer me something that would help to replace my craving for the cola? Lets find out…
Like I mentioned they have introduced seven uniquely flavored lemonade pairings – Cool Cucumber, Lemongrass, Salsa, Watermelon, Beat The Heat (muskmelon), Tangy Kiwi and Kaccha Aam. Well my favorite was the cucumber followed closely by the kaccha aam and lemongrass. These flavors complimented the lemonade flavor in a manner where both were enhanced. If you are looking for something more fruity then I suggest you try the kiwi, watermelon or muskmelon. The fruit flavor dominated the lemonade one (mostly) for me in these pairings. If you are feeling especially adventurous then opt for Salsa flavor which has been made from capsicum and tomato! Honestly I would have never guessed what was in it…very unique and not everyone’s cup of tea. The opinion was divided on this one. But if you like vegetable juices then this one will be right up your alley.
Well I have found my alternative for the cola for this summer. And the best part is that I am spoilt for choices as I can choose a flavor to suit my mood for the day. The Yellow Straw Midsummer Lemony Affair is on till the 30th of June. So head on down with your friends and family to try it out for yourself. Oh ya! Don’t miss out on the yummy fruit salad…fresh fruits served with ice cream topped with honey and toasted seeds…what a perfect way to end the day! I will see you soon my chicas! Much love <3
