Tamarind Juice
Recipe type: Drink
Cuisine: Caribbean
  • 20 tamarind (fruit)
  • 1¼ cups sugar (You may need less if your tamarind is a more sweeter. Our local variety is more sour than sweet)

  • 3 cups water
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 3 tsp Angostura bitters
  1. Shell tamarinds. Pour room temperature water over them (6 cups) in a mug and set aside for 20 to 30 minutes.
  2. Stir to remove the pulp from the seeds. Remove the seeds.
  3. Add extra water (3 cups) sugar, stir well until all the sugar has dissolved. Add essence and angostura bitters.
  4. Serve chilled or with ice.
