This citrus-salt-soda combination is unbeatable for quenching the thirst on a hot day (or for brightening up a rainy one). To quote Mr Kohinoor, “Fresh lime soda, nice and sweet, to beat the Bombay heat.”

Feel free to use lemons in place of limes.


  • A large pinch of flaky sea salt
  • 25 ml lime juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 1


  1. Crumble the salt into a tall glass. Add the lime juice, let it sit for a minute, then add the syrup and stir well.
  2. Fill the glass with ice, then add the soda. We recommend you measure the soda to get the perfect salty-sweet balance. Stir and serve immediately, garnished with a lime wedge.
