Dwarka’s Specialty Drink
Despite Indian markets (including that of Dwarka) are flooded with the host of soft drinks of MNCs, the local traders command tremendous clout with their innovative offerings of variety of drinks for various seasons at various places in India. Each of such drinks has had its typicality.

A trader of Dwarka's Holi Bazar offers a unique blend of drink unheard of anywhere-a butter milk with soda. Mr. Vaman Gokani, the local business-man has plenty of other soft-drinks, juices and variety of blends might be found elsewhere in Gujarat/India, but the blend of butter-milk and soda is only of its kind. It's so popular that Dwarka's natives take special care to ensure that their guests go amazed after taking this drink when they visit Dwarka.

Any tourist trying this Dwarka specialty drink would forget tests of drinks of even MNCs.

And why not ? Even the Lord Krishna was fond of butter and milk i.e. butter-milk in his life. #Top
