It's the time to feast, indulge and make merry. Diwali is here today and the mere thought of festive delicacies is taking our excitement to whole new heights. Be it kaju katli, soan papdi, chakli, namkeen or salted cashews, there are countless treats we have grown up associating Diwali with. However, we rarely give full due to the drinks served at every Diwali party, especially if they are non-alcoholic. But let's admit it; there've been a range of mocktails and mixes that have made Diwali a memorable affair for us. A festive meal cannot ever be complete without some good drinks to accompany. If you are hosting a Diwali party at home this year, here are five amazing drinks you can serve at your party:
Pineapple lovers, raise your hands! This mocktail is made with a mix of fresh pineapple chunks, strawberry syrup and pineapple juice. It can't get more festive than this!
It is tangy and zesty at the same time. Ditch market-based sugary iced-tea powders, and prepare homemade iced-tea to impress your guests this festive season.
