I am so proud to have found square jar which I used as a punch bowl for this drink. Filipinos love this usually eaten with fish balls and other street foods back home. Hmmmm, yummy!It is dark syrup using brown sugar or muscovado for a healthier version. plus banana essence or vanilla flavoring and pandan. Thats 2 parts sugar and 1 part water
Ex.: 1 part ingredient =1 cup
so: 1 part= 1c water
2 parts= 2 cups sugar
For the tapiocca: Yes I soaked that overnight to soften the pearls and to make cooking faster. Then the next day, I boiled a 1 cup amount of pearls to 3 cups water for 8 minutes until just soft not soggy.Drain and add syrup.
Concoction: 8 or 10 oz glass: Mix 1 cup pearl -syrup mix and 1 1/2 cup cold water and a lot of ice.

FYI(for your info only)
This is the real Pandan plant. Thai and Filipino cooking uses a lot of this .
