In the present study, poly-herbal powder drink was developed by using some traditional herbs having proved nutritional potential. The key ingredients were selected as cinnamon, Amla, liquorice, lemon juice, tulsi and menthe based on their household routine use in the summer with proven refreshing, cooling and energetic feeling since ages. After several trials made, the final composition of formulation was selected as most suitable combination based on the taste and physicochemical properties. The physicochemical analysis of the prepared drink found to contain optimum level of pH which was in accordance of the commercial recommendations. During the nine point’s hedonic scale sensory evaluation, the drink was strongly liked for colour, taste, flavor and texture. The developed herbal drink provides an economical and feasible option for the consumers with very good taste combined with potential health benefits. The present drink is potentially capable to replace the synthetic drinks available in the market
