Yes, you heard it right, Ganga Jamuna that's how it's called. And I have no clue why its called so, maybe because of combination of two famous fruits.
The first time, a couple of years back I heard about this drink while going to Mahabaleshwar, a hill station on Western ghats Satara district, Maharashtra.
Completing all rituals of Hindu marriage and being constantly surrounded by relatives for past few weeks, we finally managed to plan out a weekend trip, our very first trip after marriage to a hill station- Mahabaleshwar. I think, it doesn't matter whether your marriage is arranged or love, everyone looks forward to spend some time alone with their spouse, I always do :)
It was a hot summer day, after driving for 2 hours in heavy traffic we were tired and hungry. Although our destination was a couple of hours away we decided to stop over for lunch on a highway restaurant. Still getting to know each other, my husband asked me "would you like to have Ganga Jamuna", Past weeks were full of rituals and new learning that my immediate reaction and stern voice was "No ways!!!! I'm not going to try anything new ".
Believe me I really did not know what "Ganga Jamuna" was, for me they were names of rivers, holy places. My husband smiled and said "Its a combination of juices, Orange and Sweet Lime juice, I thought you would like it as Sweet lime juice is your favorite."
Gosh!!!! he was so right, Sweet lime was my favorite juice. I could not stop blushing, and wondering how he knew that. We ended up ordering Ganga Jamuna Juice, which was so tasty, a combination of Oranges and Sweet lime, and yes, this is one of my favorites now :) For the remaining journey we were giggling and laughing over Ganga Jamuna.
