Tamarind Limeade

Why hello there – I am back and have missed you all!

I sincerely hope you enjoyed hearing from some of my blogging friends – those are four pretty amazing woman who deliver great ideas on the regular so if you haven’t subscribed to them yet, be sure to do so!

A couple of weeks ago, I hosted a little dinner party. I had this whole Thai Menu planned out and conceptually it was interesting, not too ridiculously difficult to execute and still healthy.

Tamarind Lime Drink

However, every single recipe was a new venture for me. Probably not the smartest idea when having people over. Not one to shy away from trying new things, I steamed ahead and when push came to shove, this wasn’t my best cooking day. Was it the recipes I selected as  inspiration or my execution of them? Who knows and it certainly happens to everyone sometimes so you can’t beat yourself up over it.

Luckily, our guests were gracious and the company was good enough that we all still had a great time. The food wasn’t horrible or even bad, it just wasn’t what I would consider anything special and not up to my standards.

With that being said, it’s fair to say that I will not be sharing the Shaved Salad or Mussels recipe with you. I will, however, be sharing this fantastic Tamarind Lime Drink which is non-alcoholic and some addictive Thai Spiced Cashews later in the week.

The broiled pineapple with coconut whipped cream is a tasty dessert that I didn’t have to photograph but would happily remake if you guys are interested in the recipe so let me know on that one.

NOTES:

  • If you want to make this into a mixed drink, I think Vodka, Tequila, Gin or even Rum would work but make sure to account for the Points Plus.

Prep:
Total:
 
1 Points Plus Per Serving -- Serves 8
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • ½ cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1 teaspoon tamarind paste
  • ¾ cup hot water
  • 8 medium limes, juiced
  • 6 cups cold water
  • lime flavored club soda and fresh lime for serving
Instructions
  1. Begin by combining coconut palm sugar and tamarind paste with hot water. Stir until completely dissolved and set aside.
  2. Roll each lime across cutting board or other flat surface to help release the juice from the flesh. Cut and juice into a pitcher.
  3. Add palm sugar-tamarind mixture and cold water to lime juice. Stir to mix. Taste and adjust tamarind as necessary. Every brand has a different potency so you may need just a bit more.
  4. Chill until ready to serve. Serve over crushed ice with a splash of lime club soda and a lime wedge. Enjoy!

    I am excited to try this recipe. I always appreciate a tasty non-alcoholic beverage. Artisan drinks with fresh ingredients are becoming popular in Los Angeles. Now I can make my own at home. I don’t keep coconut palm sugar in the house– do you know if another sweetener would work well like brown sugar, granulated white sugar, honey or agave? Thanks.

    Well, the menu sounds like it would have been amazing…I’d happily be a guest at your table any day. Cannot wait to see those cashews (YUM), but right now, I know I need to make this! Agua de Tamarindo and fresh Limeade are basically our two favorite refreshing bevvies in this house…I’d never thought to combine them. It’s happening.

    Welcome back!

      I will remake the pineapple and coconut whipped cream for sure – I had some the next day for breakfast 😉

    Welcome home! I hope you had a fun visit. I’ve overextended myself with new recipes when having guests for dinner, too – it’s so much fun to try new ideas, but I have to remind myself to include a few familiar ones so I can focus on the new dish. This tamarind lime drink sounds delicious! When we were in India we drank a lot of lime soda with salt added, which was so refreshing. I love your addition of tamarind and happily I have some limes so will try it today. And I’d love to learn more about your broiled pineapple with coconut whipped cream – sounds seriously good!
