It's summer time in other countries. So while I can hear the sound of heavy rain in my place, sweltering heat is endured by people in other places. If you're in one of those countries where it's so hot, hot, hot...what do you do to cope with it? What's the best drink to make you feel cooler and stop you from getting dehydrated?

In India its gets pretty hot in the summer. The best refreshing and cooling drink that I have had till date is cold butter milk with a mild amount of seasoning and a little bit of shredded raw mango added to it to give it the flavour.

I've never tried that drink either. Did you use ripe or green mango? What seasoning did you put?

Green raw mango and the seasoning of a little bit of Cumin seed powder along with salt and black pepper.

I wear a cotton blouse and a pair of cotton shorts, put on a sun hat and some sunglasses when it is really hot. It is summer time in my country and when it is really sunny I like to spend time on the beach. Today I took my dogs for a walk and saw some boys swimming in my local river. I don't go that far to stay cool. I drink some water or grapefruit juice. I love traveling and the hottest place I have been is Darwin in Australia, it was hot and humid there in the wet season. I have been to Israel and Jordan in the summer and it was incredibly hot but dry. I dressed in cool cotton clothes and drank lots of water.
