reposting : nirvana (mocktail)

This incident is quite funny ,once  there was a marraige proposal for my husband's brother,the girl was from kolkatta,but her sister was settled in bangalore and the girl had come to stay at her sisters place for few days,and suddenly we heard of them and we went to meet her,we were really embarrased so as to how to start the conversation ,all these arrange marraiges are so difficult and funny at times,they first served us this drink saying its "nirvana " and we were like grrr...wht...huh! we were like thinking but still smiling at the same time and confused wether to drink or not,but the drink was so attractive that we all cudnt take our eyes off ..and there i had my first sip,hmmm.. yum yum ,and then second ...yummy and immediately had more, just cudnt resist to finish it all :),meanwhile came to know that drink was made by the girl and we were higly impressed with her,also finally at the end of the day we approved her to be my co-sister and within few months they got married,since then i had this drink in my mind and after she came to our house i asked her to share this recipe with me and now its my favourite drink till date.
