My favourite Balinese drink is a cold iced barley lime drink. I never fail to order this drink whenever I step into a Balinese restaurant. I first came to know about this drink when I had my dinner at Bumbu Bali, a Balinese restaurant in Bandar Puteri Puchong when I was still in the university. It is a very refreshing and cooling drink, a perfect combination with the spiciness of the Balinese food. Just like the name, it is a simple to do drink. I hope you enjoy this recipe.
