    NorthwestGal's Note:

    I found this recipe on the Epicurious website (posted by Heidi Swanson), and I thought I'd post it here for others to enjoy. It's a sparkling version of a traditional Indian beverage that is typically made during the Hindi festival of Sri Rama Navami. Some families also serve Panakam to wedding guests as a welcome gesture. This version is less sweet than most other panakam recipes, so feel free to increase the sugar level to your liking. Yield is 4 cups/1 liter.

    Serves: 4



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a medium pitcher, make a thick paste by stirring together the sugar, ginger, cardamom, lime juice, salt, and a small splash of the sparkling water. Stir until all sugar has dissolved.
    2. 2
      Add more water, a little at a time, stirring all the while. The mixture will get quite fizzy, so just take it slow.
    3. 3
      Serve as cold as possible with as many ice cubes wedged into the pitcher as possible.

      Wow, NWG was this good. I really liked the way that the mineral water, lime and spices complimented one amother. I usually prefer a sweeter drink but this was perfect just the way it was written. I always grind my spices fresh, it gives a lovely soft subtle flavor that gets lost in the pre ground packaged ones. I didn't grind them super fine so there were flecks of ginger and cardamom in the glass. I loved it. This is a unique drink, light, refreshing and memorable. Thanks for sharing this treat NWG.
