We’re getting ready for our launch party on June 2nd at our new Fremont City Center location. I love get-togethers, especially when the weather is beautiful and the getting-together happens outdoors!

Now whether it's a picnic, bbq, pool party, or your very own launch, you simply must have shikanjvi (traditional Punjabi lemonade) or lassi (traditional Punjabi yogurt drink) served cold for your guests!
