As we celebrate the fun festival of Holi, excitement has started building up. Preparations have already begun and markets are brimming with different Holi colours, toys, water balloons and Holi-special foods. Holi marks the end of the spring season and welcomes summers. The festival of colours is incomplete without indulging in scrumptious foods and refreshing drinks. Thandai is a must, but there are many other drinks besides plain thandai that you can serve if you are hosting a Holi party for your friends and family. From Berry Kanji to the cocktail Rang Rasia, there are a plethora of recipes waiting to be explored.
Holi 2021: Holi-Special Drinks That You Can Serve During The Festival
The chilled milk-based drinks with a mix of melon seeds, rose water, rose petals and lots of nuts are a must during Holi festivities.
2. Paan Thandai
Give a desi and boozy spin to regular thandai by adding gulkand, betal leaf and a generous amount of vodka to it. A perfect fun drink to celebrate the fun festival.
3. Almond Milk Thandai
Tired after playing Holi? Get over the energy hump with this vegan delight made with almond milk, which makes for a healthful treat. Roasted watermelon seeds and sunflower seeds level up its nutrition quotient. A pinch of saffron lends it a beautiful colour, and seedless dates will satiate your sweet tooth.
4. Berry Kanji
It's highly unlikely, but if you are bored of thandai, kanji is another popular drink that is served during Holi. It is a fermented tangy drink made with lots of spices and frozen berries. It is served with mint leaves and lemon wedges, making an exciting melange of tangy, spicy and tarty flavours.
This is another unique take on traditional kanji. It is a concoction of two healthy vegetables – carrots and beetroot. If you want to impress your guests with something different, you must consider this lip-smacking drink.
6. Rang Rasia
If you are throwing an extravagant party for Holi, this dark rum cocktail is just what you should give your guests and help them have a good time.
