Entertaining season is upon us. When I have guests over, I like to make a special cocktail in addition to wine and beer. I don’t have the capacity of serving a full bar, but with one special drink, I can find the balance.
Tamarind Sours taste like Hawaiian Punch with a boozy kick. This recipe is adapted from Douglas Rodriguez’s Nuevo Latino. I use Pom Pomegranate Juice instead of his suggested grenadine syrup. You can adjust the sugar and lime to your taste. Tamarind Juice is available at both Asian and Latin markets.
For 4 cocktails:
4 oz. Southern Comfort
1 lime juiced
2 tbs. sugar
2 oz. Pom pomegranate juice
1 cup tamarind juice
Combine ingredients, shake vigorously and serve over crushed ice.
