I love this drink. I first enjoyed it at my favorite pupuseria (Pupuseria la Chicana) in Woodland, CA. It is generally made with dried or fresh tamarind but since I have a big ol' jar of Tamarind extract (picked up from the local indian store), I went with that. It is a deliciously refreshing drink. It (tamarind) is also thought to have medicinal properties in ayurvedic medicine.
Serves 6 (with possible seconds)
2 tbspn of tamarind extract
6 tbspn of sugar (maybe more or less, depends how sweet you like your drink)
1/2 ga of water (or more)
and lastly, but most importantly, LOTS of ice.
1. Mix all ingredients except ice in utensil of choice. Taste, add ice and serve.
