Author Notes

I love the strange tang of tamarind. It's plenty easy to find in here, in any of the Mexican markets. I had a bag with no forseen purpose in the pantry. I started by shelling the pods, then steeping the gooey fruit in hot water. The result was tamarind water plus pulp. I separated the water from the pulp and used some of the water as a flavor for my "beer". It's not what you think! —midnitechef

What You'll Need
  • 1 can Ginger Ale (preferably Canada Dry)
  • 1/4 cup tamarind water (as described above)
  1. Pour the tamarind water in a glass. Slowly add the ginger ale creating a foamy head to make it look like beer.
