Summary

This drink  not only looks pretty but it is a great drink to make with youngsters and let them be creative with flavors, fruits  and decorative touches. It also  looks beautiful on you summer party table.

You can use Store bought Lemonade or prepare on at home. I used Chia Seeds and Indian Chia Seeds known as Takmaria.  These seeds are used in many Indian Deserts and as a cooling drink. These seeds are available in Indian Markets-You can use only Chia Seeds if Takmaria is not available.

 

For colorful Lemonade you can also use different kinds of Syrup.
