Mango Pomegranate Spiced Sparkler

This drink deserves to be on your Diwali party menu. Mildly spiced, with traditional Indian flavours and bejeweled colours, it’s an absolute show stopper. Mocktails also help those in a party who don’t consume alcohol not feel left out or sipping plainly on a pepsi or a coca cola. I have used club soda to give it a party kick, but plain cold water would work well too. Make sure you drizzle in the pomegranate juice at the very end for cloudy red hit in the drink.

Hi. I am Subalakshmi Sundar. The face behind The Petit Bite. People gathered around a table, good food, great company and fun conversations are the things that make me the happiest. This blog is an attempt to share one part of that with all of you. Great Food. Indian palate is going through a huge culinary journey right now. We are rooted in traditions but want to explore the world cuisines as well. That's what I enjoy the most. A slight Indian twist given to world recipes to suit our palate. You will find easy recipes for busy days, slightly long recipes for days when cooking is therapy and recipes that take time to come together when you want to immerse yourself in to the fine art of cooking. Whatever recipe you choose, I hope it's a pleasure to cook and to eat. Do tag me on Instagram or facebook if you try any. Nothing makes me happier. Happy cooking, y'all.. Much Love, S.
