I first tasted this at my sister's place.My brother inlaw loves this and his mom sends him a bottle of concentrated juice every summer.Last few days back i went to vijaywada along with my sister's family.There i saw each and very street has a vendor selling this sherbert to beat the horrible heat of vijaywada (the temple town of Godess kanaka durga)

One glass of sugandhi is prized at Rs.10/-.When we order a glass,the vendor pours a quarter of the concentrated juice and half time.Then he adds soda and mixes it.It tastes good when drank cold.

The concentrated juice are sold in bottles costing Rs.100/- per bottle.I brought one bottle and we finished it within 15 days.Wished i had taken a snap of the vendor selling this juice.I googled it and got a picture.

This drink is conveniently given in polythane bags to take home to drink in leisure.
