Mezcal Tamarind Sour

6 Ingredients

The trick here is making delicious tamarind Water or agua de tamarindo. Delicious on its own or as a cocktail.


  • 6 oz Tamarind Water
  • 4 oz Lime Juice 
  • 2oz Coconut Water (optional) 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1 dose of Juna Balance CBD


The polyphenols in tamarind have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and work to lower blood sugar.

How to:

Make by steeping approximately 15 freshly peeled tamarind pods, or 1 tablespoon tamarind paste with 8 cups water. Simmer on stove until tamarind flesh starts to fall off. The mix should taste sweet and sour, and have a highly concentrated tamarind flavor. (Nature's sour patch kids!) Stir frequently to remove flesh from the pods, strain.

Add 1 cup coconut sugar to warm mixture. Stir to dissolve sugar. Let mixture cool. 

Shake all ingredients with ice.

Garnish with orange wedge! 

Optional: add Mezcal or Bourbon to taste
