Shell all the tamarind from one of thoes boxes. Mix the pulp with hot water, sugar, and a pinch of salt, and let it sit for an hour. Press through a strainer to remove the pulp from the seeds. Some of the pulp mixture in a cup with ice. Lime and soda finishes it off. This drink is refreshing and delicious. I added a shot of vodka to mine!
- 1 Box Tamarind Pods
- Soda Water
- Open one box of tamarind pods. Crack the shells and place all the flesh into a bowl. In a pot, heat up some water to a simmer. Pour the hot water over the tamarind only about half way up. Add 1/3 cup of brown sugar and a pinch of salt. Stir this mixture every few minutes for the course of an hour. Pour the mixture into a mesh strainer over a bowl to collect the water and press the tamarind pulp through the strainer to remove the strings and seeds. Pour the tamarind water and pulp into a blender and blend smooth. To a cup with ice, add a few spoonfuls of the tamarind mixture, a squeeze of lime, and fill with soda water. Stir well and serve! Refreshing!
