Kulukki Sarbath- Popular Summer Drink in kerala

kulukki sarbath

Kulukki sarbath or shaken sarbath is a popular summer drink in kerala…

Lately, Kulukki sarbath has been talked about wildly and enjoyed greatly in kerala. I came to know about this through my sister and got curious enough to try this. I saw a few youtube videos and found that anyone can make this sarbath at home. Today, I made this for Iftar, loved this refreshing lime drink.

Kulukki in malayalam means Shaking. After adding all the ingredients into a glass or a cocktail shaker, everything is given a vigorous shake, shake it baby shake it…Hence, the name Kulukki sarbath or Shaken sherbet.

Green chilies give a slight kick to this sarbath, but not too spicy. I loved the addition of pineapple, gives a nice flavor to this drink. It’s refreshing to the core and a perfect thirst quencher in summer.
