Author Notes: This drink is a fusion of my Jamaican and Southern roots! The tamarind creates a sour punch while the peach makes the drink fruitfully sweet! —Briana Riddock
cup tamarind paste
ripe peaches, seeds removed and quatered
cups boiling water
cups cold water
mint leave + extra for garnish
cup lime juice
- In a medium pot bring water to a boil and add the tamarind paste and sugar. Remove from heat and let paste loosen up for 20-30 minutes and allow the sugar to dissolve.
- Pour the tamarind paste mixture in a blender along with the peach slices and mint leaves. Blend well and strain mixture through a fine mesh strainer.
- When the base is cooled pour the drink in a pitcher and stir in the cold water, lime juice and additional whole mint leaves. Refrigerate and serve chilled!
