Amber-hued panagam is South India's armor against the ruthless summer sun. Made from jaggery, lime juice, cardamom, and ground ginger, it extinguishes thirst quickly and thoroughly. The drink is often served on the holy days of Rama Navmi and Narasimha Jayanti, spring Hindu festivals which fall in April or May.
During the stifling heat of summer in India, these cold, richly spiced drinks are comfort in a glass
