Tamarind Drink

Spread the love

Tamarind is a type of tropical fruit.
It’s used in many dishes around the world, and may even have medicinal properties. You don’t have to put anything in it if you don’t want to this is how I like it.


2 cups ripe tamarind pulp
8 cups of boiled water
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 drops Angostura bitters
1 medium lime
2 ozs ginger
Honey or brown sugar to sweeten


Remove the outer shell and place the tamarind pulp in a large bowl.

Pour half the boiling water into the bowl onto the tamarind. After 1 minute, try crushing the tamarind with a fork.

Grater the piece of ginger and add it to the tamarind water. Leave to cool.

When to water is cool enough use a masher to break the tamarind apart until all the flashy bits are fully removed from the seeds.

Strain thoroughly using a fine strainer.

Add the rest of the water to the strained juice.

Add the vanilla, angostura bitters, and lime juice

Sweeten to your taste.

Serve chilled!
