OK, Please! (Tamarind Masala Daiquiri)

OK, Please! (Tamarind Masala Daiquiri)

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)


Recipe by: Amanda Houghtaling



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

for the tamarind chaat syrup:
300g cane sugar
150g water
