Adraki Nimboo Pani is a fun twist on traditional nimboo pani. For indigestion, hangovers, dehydration, or if you’re just in the mood for a tasty and refreshing drink, ginger limeade is perfect.
I went on this awful horseback trip through Rajasthan last August, seriously awful coordination by the tour company. Within days we were desperately trying to fight off dehydration and heat stroke (see what I mean by awful) and plain water wasn’t cutting it. It was time to fall back on the old world remedies, and start drinking nimboo pani and adraki nimboo pani. We were consuming about a liter of water each, during the rides, and then back at the hotel, pounding these over the course of the evening. Talk about being cheap dates.
There’s a number of variations you can make to nimboo pani, this being a perfect example. You can swap water for sparkling or seltzer water, and you can add additional spices and herbs to flavor it. I love the spiciness the ginger adds to nimboo pani. I’m not a fan of sweet limeade, it just gets saccharine and boring, in my opinion. I tend to stick with salted nimboo pani but with the addition of ginger the limeade is no longer overly sweet or boring. Couple this with something as tasty as curry egg salad sandwiches and you’ll be in heaven.
I love making drinks like this for parties and barbecues. You can easily make large batches and with a little bit of garnish it looks absolutely beautiful. You can serve these in anything from a glass, jar, jug, or dispenser. To top it off it’s not your run of the mill drink that’s served at every party. I’m all about putting in the least amount of effort and achieving as much wow factor as possible. Adraki nimboo pani will do it!
