Panaka is a refreshing, cool, thirst quenching lemon juice which flows freely during the festival of Ramanavami.
This cool, thirst quenching drink is made with mainly fresh juicy lemons and jaggery. Someone taking a sip of Panaka for the first time will find flavours bursting in their mouth! It’s not just a regular lemon juice they realise.
Making Panaka during Ramanavami is perfect as it is a welcome relief during the sweltering summer in India. Lemons are a rich source of Vitamin C and antioxidant phytonutrients. They are believed to ‘cool down’ the body. So when life give you lemons, make Panaka!
