Tamarind Juice is a tangy tart and sweet juice that complements savory foods or snacks. The fruit is full of health benefits, and the sweet variety can be eaten straight out of the pod. However, in the Caribbean, we love to make juice and candies with this sour fruit. In this recipe, you will get the full flavor of this thirst-quenching drink and cools you down just right on a hot sunny day.

Tamarind pulp can be purchased on its own; However, if you have fresh fruit available, you simply have to remove the shell to reveal the pulp and seeds.
In a large pot, place the pulp or pulp and seed pods along with the ginger and 2 liters of water and bring to a boil on high heat. Allow to cook for 5-10 minutes.
Turn off the heat, cover the pot and allow it to steep until the water is cool to the touch.
Use your hands to remove the seeds from the pulp and discard the seeds.
Strain the pulp liquid into a jug or pitcher to remove any debris.
To the tamarind liquid, add the remaining ingredients sweetening to your preferred taste.
Serve over ice or chilled.
