Drakshi sharbat recipe - How to make grapes sharbat

Drakshi sharbat recipe - Green grape sharbat, another thirst quencher, refresher and energy booster in the hot summer. It is made of green grapes, sugar, salt and lemon juice along with chilled drinking water. Grapes contain vitamin-C, vitamin A, iron, phosphorus and some amount of  vitamin B-Complex etc. This sharbat is healthier as it does not have any preservatives compared to other aerated drinks. Lemon juice is added to get the desired tanginess. 

Thus we get the required amount of vitamin c, as lemon is good source of vitamin c. After a stressful work, when the sharbat  is sipped slowly, it cools throat and stomach. It has thanda thanda, cool cool effect. 

A great refreshing drink to small kids, after their play. Now the question is, do we really get all the nutrients of grapes in this sharbat?  No, not at all. The reason is some of the vitamins and minerals are slowly lost when exposed to water, air and heat. Being soluble in water, some amount of  vitamin C and vitamin B are lost in the process, while making such sharbats. But squeezing lemon juice in the sharbat just before serving and drinking it immediately is proved beneficial. It is more beneficial  when the fruit is eaten in its natural form.
