Amla & Pomegranate Cooler

Summer is incomplete without chilled drinks and an anniversary party is incomplete without a welcome drink or cocktail. Though alcholic and non alcholic storebought beverages exists,nothing can beat the homemade healthy drinks. Here comes one among those healthy drink, a quick,easy breezy, an excellent body cooler and also hassle free cooler simply prepared with Amla. Usually i do simple juice with amla aka gooseberries,this time i want to make it something differently with the juice,hence i tried adding pomegranate pearls, soaked sabja seeds aka basil seeds. Trust me this cooler is an excellent drink to serve anyone whoever visits you. Amla dont dominate much in this drink, since pomegranate seeds sits for a while in prepared amla cooler, they gives a mild subtle flavor to this cooler.

In this cooler i used just pomegranate seeds,if you want to go for a combination of mixed fruits, dont ever hesitate a second, just go on. Seriously you can make a super cocktail with different fruits chunks soaked in sweetened amla juice. By the way, this excellent drink is going to be a part of this week's blogging marathon, as i picked Kid's delight - Anniversary Party. Its really hard to feed the healthy amla juice to kids, but honestly this cooler works awesome. When i served this cooler to my cousin's kids, they returned back their glasses completely emply, yes they just loved it, needless to say that this drink is approved as tasty drink by my cousin's kids.
