You can see a lot of vendors selling watermelon juice in various cities of India. Traditionally, there were no colas and soft drinks. Fruit juices and butter milk sold in small earthen cups or 'kulhad' continued to give a relief to travelers. Works better than colas even now. Healthy and tasty too.
