A Monkeyman Original

1.5 oz Tamarind Juice (a popular brand is Jumex)
0.5 oz Trader Vics KoKo Creme syrup
0.5 oz Tamarind Syrup (Torani is a good brand)
1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
1.5 oz Bacardi Light
1.0 oz Myers Dark

Shake with ice and pour into another glass filled with ice.

Garnish with a washed and peeled tamarind fruit and a healthy sprig of mint.

Monkeyman:

We will make your drink as we can buy Jumex Tamarindo at Food City, which is a Mexicano Grocery store less than 2 blocks from our place. We make tamarind Margeritas all the time so it is not a stretch to use it in your cocktail. We buy the pulp when we are down in Mexico, as we love the stuff.

We'll let you know after we make them.

Thanks.

Was able to sample the MonkeyPod drink at Ona Tiki & Moki's party last month, and it was very good, especially liked the garnish.


TBird.

Will the Monkeypod mug include a Monkeypod drink? How about refill privliges, like when you bring your growlers back to the brewery? Mmmmmmm, Monkeypod...

Jumex Tamarind juice is available at the 99 Cents Only store, I think they're 2 for $0.99.

I couldn't find the Torani either. I bought a different bottle from the nearby international market.
