In the scorching heat of summer, nothing rejuvenates the body quite like a chilled glass of your preferred beverage, soothing from the inside out. While icy lemonades and fruity sodas offer refreshing respite, the true yearning of our desi hearts lies in indulging in traditional Indian drinks like the luscious mango shake or the velvety lassi.

When faced with the relentless heat and humidity, we find ourselves torn between these irresistible options, longing to consume all things cold within our grasp. If you can relate to this sentiment, then Sonam Kapoor's recent Instagram post is sure to strike a chord with you.

Unveiling a glimpse into her summer beverage delights, the actor took to her Instagram Stories to share two images, one of a glass brimming with the creamy goodness of a mango shake and another of chilled lassi, an enticing duo that epitomises the essence of Indian indulgence. The images came with a question that read, "Which type of person are you?" 

Wondering what Sonam likes? Well, she answered, "I'm both!" Take a look: 

Well, choosing between a mango shake and a lassi is truly a hard task. While one is a staple of mango season, full of juicy, luscious mango chunks, the other is a traditional yoghurt-based drink with a thick and creamy texture—perfect to beat the heat. No wonder Sonam loves both equally! 

However, if you too are just the same but must choose one, we’ve got the perfect way to enjoy the best of both worlds. Mango Lassi is a lovely concoction that seamlessly combines the lusciousness of mangoes with the cool creaminess of yoghurt. It calls for just a few simple ingredients: creamy yoghurt, ripe mangoes, and an abundance of refreshing ice. With a minute in the blender, you’ll have a lovely drink to beat the heat with.
