Last two day we all were thinking about Fani (pronounced as Foni in Bengali) when we will encounter with this cyclone. Cyclone fani hit Indian state Odisha at 8.30 AM on 3rd May 2019. It was announced that it will reach West Bengal by afternoon and it will hit Kolkata same day in the evening. But it somehow after reaching Digha, the cyclone fani rapidly lost its power and shrinks its area. So there was not much cyclonic effect in Kolkata and its sounding area. So now cyclone threat is over, so its time to have drinks.
Why sometimes lemongrass lemonade is better than lemon water?
Yes, sometimes lemongrass lemonade is healthy option than lemon water if you drink too many juices, milkshakes, mojito etc. Lemon juice is sour in taste. So if you add more lemon juice to get a strong flavor then you may need to ass more sugar to make it delicious. So that means you are consuming more calorie which is not good for your health. But in case you add lemongrass then it won’t add a sour taste in your drink but still, it gives strong flavor, so you can add less sugar and make your drink delicious.
