Ginger Ale! A beverage my family and I love…my son in particular-The Ginger Ale syrup from a brand called “ Sheetal”. It’s cold, refreshing, delicious and the proportions are spot on!
I was introduced to this Syrup around 5 years ago by a close friend during a yearly local fair in Indore. The second I brought it home..it was an instant hit! My son almost religiously has at least one glass a day with his evening snacks after school.
In a tropical country like India, this drink is a respite from the heat! The ginger also helps soothe a sore throat. We love it so much that we source it, especially from Kolkata all the way to Indore. But you Kolkata folks are really lucky! You can source this beverage at most general stores in Kolkata.
