Blood orange - pomegranate- cranberry khatta-meetha (sweet-sour) mocktail

KalaKhatta our very own chatpatta - videshi style

I grew up in India and every year during our summer break we would visit my uncle in Mumbai. Mumbai is known for street food and barf ka gola (shaved ice with syrup) is something that I just loved. A specific flavor was kala-khatta, an absolute favorite. This mocktail is inspired from it.

If you are not familiar with chaat masala, it is a must-have in every pantry. It is a spice blend that has a bit of sourness, saltiness, sweetness, a bit astringent. absolutely lip-smacking. Sprinkle it on anything and it brings the flavors to life. Don't miss making this one...


2-3 cups blood orange juiced
1 cup pomegranate juice
4-5 cranberries
some raw tamarind or juice of half lime
1-inch ginger juice
1 tsp chaat masala
1/2 tsp red chili powder
4 tbsp sugar
1 cup of water
2 cups club soda OR
1/2 cup vodka

Instructions :

  • Take the cranberries and blend with water 
  • Add sugar and make a simple syrup, to this add raw tamarind or lime juice
  • Let it cool then add chaat, red chili powder & ginger juice 
  • Mix with the juices
  • Add club soda and served chilled
If you add vodka omit the club soda.
