It is an Indian traditional drink, I am not aware either it is popular in your country or not but you must try and serve others also due to its lot of health benefits. Thanks!

This drink is so beautiful, and I'm sure it tastes good too. My family and I occasionally make lacto-fermented drinks from ginger, and we're definitely keen to try this soon.
