A refreshing soda drink made with nannari aka sarasparilla roots syrup…
Even though October is almost ending, the climate hasn’t shown huge changes. Yes, mornings have gone to a below 30 degree temperatures and with fog. However, it is still warm and uncomfortable during the day. The nights however are much more pleasant, though because of the humidity, it does leave you heaving for a little bit of air. October is always a month every one looks forward to, in order to cram in a lot of outdoor activities in the upcoming months and we are sincerely hoping that the climate does get better soon, InShaAllah…
Since it is still warm and calls for something cold, I decided to share this soda-based drink that I so love. Remember the Naaranga Soda? Unlike that one, this particular one was a little difficult for me to accept. The flavor of the nannari or sarasparilla root syrup got onto me with time. I usually enjoy it with just plain lime and occasionally as paal sarbath whenever I have ice cream at home. But of late, I am totally in love with this drink. I keep soda in my fridge and this drink is what I make whenever I feel parched, and I want something more than water. The best thing about this drink is that it is low calorie, depending upon how much syrup you use. I keep it incredibly less sweet, so that I don’t feel guilty about it. 😀 It is really simple to make and even more delicious to enjoy… Off to the recipe…
