1.5 oz Tamarind Juice (a popular brand is Jumex)



Tamarind juice or nectar? I was just looking at an online Jumex vendor and they had Jumex tamarind nectar, not juice.

Just trying to get it correct...

The nectar IS the juice. The only way you could go wrong is if you purchased Tamarind Punch (which is essentially tamarind flavored koolaid)

What a great drink. I loved it. I really appreciated Monkeyman taking the time to deliver monkeypods to all the ohana that were stuck in the vending booths. A class act as always. Mahalo.

After personally experiencing a Monkeypod at the NW crawl, I was enticed into doing another search for the ingredients locally. Since it was so darn tasty.

Well I've found the juice, so now I'll be hunting down the syrup.

I'd also like a
Monkeypod mug!
Please keep me posted on it's progress, I'd love to have one.

Where did you find the juice TW? I've been wanting to make Monkyman's Drink and haven't found it yet.
P.S. Monkeyman, great meeting you at the NW Tiki Crawl!

For the tamarind syrup try your local Middle Eastern grocery. My lovely bride found the Vitrac brand (product of Egypt) after my many failed searches around the rest of the city.

Pepe, I found it at one of the markets in Chinatown. It comes in pop type cans and is usually close to the lychee juice. If you still haven't found any by the next time I come for a visit, I'll bring a six pack for you.

Gotta spread the Monkeypod love!

I've never seen half of those ingredients....no I am really eager to try one and see if I need to add those items to my bar.

I'm curious about the use of Tamarind juice AND Tamarind syrup. Can Tamarind syrup be home-made using the juice and sugar? Also, absolutely NO TV syrups available anywhere around here . . . what can be substituted for the KoKo Creme Syrup?

Koko Creme is the TV version of coconut creme.

I think the TV brand pours better and might be a little sweeter than the canned stuff but I suppose the canned stuff would work just as well.

I dont know much about making syrups... tamarind is a funky food to work with... its a pod fruit that has a fruity pulp around a number of large seeds...

Might be tough to get syrup from it unless you are a skilled cook.

Sorry the ingredients are so hard to find... Maybe I should put together a monkeypod kit that includes a bottle of each syrup and several cans of juice...

then the buyer would only need to supply the right kind of rum and some limes...

The Monkeypod home bar kit... so to speak.

Goya makes Tamarind Nectar -- it is in those convenient 12 ounce cans in the refrigerator section of my local bodega. I have a big bottle of Tamarind Syrup a friend brought home from Puerto Rico for me, so I will be making Monkeypods this weekend.

Good thing I saved those cocktail monkeys! I love a properly-decorated beverage...
