Limbu Sherbet or Lemonade is Akanksha’s favourite drink so much that I have to hide the blessed thing from her. So when my friend sent me a bag full of lemons there was no other choice but make Limbu Sherbet. So without much ado let’s get down to what I have done.
1 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
½ tsp salt
Food colour of you choice (optional)
Lemon essence (optional)
1. Mix sugar and water, heat it when it comes to a rolling boil switch off the gas.
2. Cool the mixture completely. Strain.
3. Strain the juice in another vessel.
4. Now mix the fruit juice, colour & essence if using.
P.S. in case you are using any other juice like say pineapples add 6 grms citric acid to the water and sugar mixture 7 boil .
You can also use potassium-meta-bisulphate as a preservative. I generally avoid it.
