Lush Lassi

The lush lassi, essentially a coconut milk based mango lassi spiked with rum is one of my personal favorite drinks at Pondicheri. The key is to get an Indian brand of canned mango puree – it will be sweetened however you will not be able to match the aroma or flavor of that mango in any other puree. It’s a very simple recipe so give it a try!
