OK, Please! (Tamarind Masala Daiquiri)

Posted by on

Recipe by: Amanda Houghtaling
Inspired by one of my favorite phrases I learned via Chai Pani, this lil mama is named "OK, Please!". She was loosely inspired by Jal Jeera which is tangy, spicy, sweet and savory all at once. Instead of coming up with my own blend of spices, I reached for Spicewalla Chaat Masala. I love the funkiness that the black salt and hing bring to the cocktail. The black pepper and ginger really warm things up, and the coriander brings a nice floral note. So complex! To bring some tang into the mix I used tamarind as the fruit base for the syrup, and to freshen things up the cocktail gets shaken with fresh mint. It's a total flavor explosion! I also love that "chaat" essentially means "snack", making this a true Snaquiri!
(snaquiri / ˈsnakərē / noun / a delicious daiquiri that is so easily drinkable, it may as well be a snack)

OK, Please!

cocktail ingredients

2oz rum (I like Plantation 3 Star for this, but I bet it would be great with a funky rum like Wray & Nephew)
1oz tamarind chaat syrup*
.75oz fresh lime Juice
5 mint leaves

tamarind chaat syrup
300g cane sugar
150g water
1 tbsp tamarind concentrate (I prefer Tamicon organic, its super concentrated and v tangy)
1 tsp Spicewalla Chaat Masala


to make the tamarind chaat syrup:
1. In a small pot over medium flame, dissolve sugar into the water.
2. Lower the flame and stir in tamarind and chaat masala. Stir to combine until smooth and there are no clumps of spices.
3. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
4. Bottle and refrigerate.

to assemble the cocktail:
1. Add 5 mint leaves, lime juice, tamarind chaat syrup and rum to a shaker tin and fill with ice.
2. Shake cocktail vigorously until ice cold and well combined.
3. Fine strain into a chilled Nick & Nora glass.
4. Garnish with a mint leaf, and enjoy.
