A local Filipino beverage made of brown sugar, water, gelatin, and tapioca pearls is called Sago at Gulaman.
Sago refers to tapioca pearls while gulaman is the Filipino term for gelatin. This recipe is somewhat a special version because both ingredients are combined together. This beverage can be simplified further by using either of the components: tapioca pearls or gelatin. It will then be named after the ingredient used.
In the Philippines, this beverage is sold almost everywhere. Large plastic or glass jars are filled up with the concoction along with generous amounts of ice. Generally called “palamig” – which is translated as refreshment – this is one way to beat the heat.
