Lassi is a drink made by blending yoghurt with water and spices, this Indian creation is usually enjoyed cold as a hot weather refreshment consumed after lunch. There are several types of lassi’s where it can be served either sweet or savoury. Sweet lassi usually is flavoured with sugar, rosewater and/or lemon alongside with different fruits while the savoury variant is flavoured with salt and spices. There is another version of lassi called Bhang lassi and it more of an intoxicating drink rather than sweet or savoury, made out of bhang a derivative of cannabis this drink will give you the same effect as the chocolate brownies you find in Amsterdam.
