Spiced Rose Lassi
Pregnant guests, designated drivers, and teetotalers need not be limited to soda and fruit punch. Serve them lassi, a chilled yogurt drink from India. Lassi (pronounced ;LAH see;) can be savory or sweet; our sweet version takes its flavor from rose water and cardamom. A healthful refreshment anytime, it is especially nice as a mouth-cooling accompaniment to spicy food.
