Indian Spiced Lemonade Cocktail


Spiced Lemonade Indian Style!  For a more spiked version just add some white rum.


  • ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
  • 4 cups water
  • 5 tbs sugar
  • ¾ tsp black salt
  • ½ tsp roasted cumin powder  (roast in oven on 150-160c until aromatic for greater depth of flavour)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp amchur (mango powder)
  •  teaspoon black pepper

* If using cumin seeds instead of powder, heat a skillet over low heat and dry roast the cumin seeds for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the color of the cumin changes to a dark brown. Turn off the heat and allow the cumin seeds to cool down. Place the cumin into a spice grinder and blend until smooth.


  1. Combine the lemon juice, water, sugar and spices together in a pitcher. Taste and adjust sugar if needed.
  2. Serve over ice and garnish with mint.
