1. Take jamun fruits in a bowl (washed). I took frozen Jamun bought from Indian grocery store. 2. Deseed jamun using a knife. 3. Take fresh or frozen jamuns in a bowl. 4. In a mixie bowl (I used my Vitamix) take jamun, sugar, black salt, 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, ice and water. 5. Blend for half a minute. 6. Add more water and/ or lemon juice if the pulp is still thick. 7. Blend again for few seconds. 8. Jamun shots are ready to serve..! It's a perfect vrat/ upas recipe.

P.S. 🍷🍷🍷If you are using it for a party then you can add 1/2 cup of any adult beverage while blending it. It's a perfect surprise element for a cocktail party... cheers!!!!🍸🍸🍸.
