Tamarind Whiskey Sour

Tamarind Whiskey Sour cocktail on a table

There is no real tradition of mixed drinks in India like we have in the West. And, this Tamarind Whiskey Sour marries the flavors of tamarind with whiskey beautifully.

This fusion cocktail pairs well with spicy food, such as Indian cuisine. This is a special drink that is simple to prepare.

You can find the tamarind paste in the International section of our store.

1 1/2 ounces bourbon
1 ounce fresh lime juice (about 1 lime)
1 tablespoon tamarind paste mixed with 1 tablespoon hot water and cooled

1 orange slice, for garnish

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the liquid ingredients and shake well. Pour into a chilled double rocks glass and garnish with the orange.

Serve with a wide straw.

Rich Simple Syrup Recipe
Twice as sweet as basic simple syrup, rich simple syrup doubles the amount of sugar for a 2:1 ratio of granulated sugar to water.

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water

Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat and stir until sugar dissolves. Set aside to cool.
