Pazham Sarbath is a popular beverage of my native place. On summer in all roadside shops start selling this tasty thirst quencher. It is simple to make and a yummy drink. I have not tried this drink from outside as all say that in shops they use bananas which are starts to spoil. So i make this drink at my home and relish my taste buds.

     Perfect taste from the bananas, nannari sharbatha  and the mild sourness from the lemon. You could prepare this drink using home made nannari syrup or using store bought ones. There are many versions of this sharbath available in our place. Other versions ranging from simple lemon sharbath, ice apple (Nungu), tender coconut etc..
