Bhangra Pepsi

Party Menu recipe posted by Lakshmi Bhangra Pepsi is nothing but jal jeera added to pepsi…its named as bhangra pepsi by Punjabi Dhaba on Cenotaph Road…the recipe is, take one tsp of jal jeera in a tall glass and pour pepsi over it slowly to avoid the froth flowing out…oh I can swear its just too yum a drink…jal jeera being an appetizer acts as a superb welcome drink along with apple-cinnamon juice and pinapple pinacolada which are famous mocktail drinks
