Ancho y Tamarindo

March 19, 2014

Goodbye winter, it’s been real. I hate to say you didn’t try, but those two days of rain a couple weeks ago really didn’t fool anyone. Maybe next year you can go easy on all the polar vortexes (vortices?) back east, and show us a little California love. In the meantime, I suppose I’ll keep mixing up cool, refreshing drinks. Sound good? Good. That being said, while the Ancho Reyes was fun to sip on its own, I knew it would shine in a cocktail. I kept it chill and made a simple highball. The Ancho Reyes and the Jarritos are both sweet, but are balanced by the heat of the ancho and the pop of fresh lime. And just like a California winter, these will disappear quickly. Almost as if they never existed . . .

not be a taboo matter but typically people don’t speak about such issues.
To the next! Kind regards!!

It’s enormous that you are getting ideas from this post
as well as from our argument made at this place.

Can you tell us more about this? I’d care to find out some additional information.

Spot on with this write-up, I honestly believe this amazing site needs a lot more attention. I’ll probably be
back again to see more, thanks for the information!

I love the pics! … and this doesn’t look intimidating to a make thank goodness! I just hope mine tastes as incredible as yours looks!!! I’ll keep you posted! More citrus … love it when you guys do citrus!!!

I can imagine how amazing the spicy chile is against tangy sweet tamarind. I bet these go down easy. And I, too, am ogling your lovely square ice cubes.

Maybe this is a bit odd, but your ice cubes are really cool–chunky and perfectly square. Love this cocktail.

I am now loving tamarindo anything, and after traveling in Ecuador i am happy to say it is also helping your tummy when in natural form.
Great drink post! xo

Thanks yp!! Wow, that’s great to know. I had no idea, that’s awesome.

What a fabulous combination! I’d like to be sipping this on my patio while soaking up the warm sun. I love the simple but creative garnish too!

Thank you Rachael!! How’s your weather out in CO? It’s (finally) dreary out here. BOOOOO!

This is possibly the most exciting cocktail you have ever posted. I love Tamarindo and have cocktailed with it on occasion with no truly inspired results. I am excited to seek out Ancho Reyes and give this one a try.

Wow, thanks Brian. You’re far too kind. Tamarindo is one of my favorite flavors, so any time I can get it in a cocktail, I get giddy. My favorite is actually boiling off a real tamarindo puree, but it’s super messy and time consuming. This soda makes for a quick work-around. Thanks for checking it out!!

tamarindo is sooo good and mixing it with alcohol, perfect way to welcome spring.

I have a confession to make… I’m allergic to alcohol… yes I know I suck… but I always enjoy your posts and pass them to my husband for entertaining ideas. Love your pics

Oh no! That’s okay Tracy. You’re better off 😉 Thanks for passing on to your husband though. I really hope he enjoys all the recipes. Thank you SO much!
