Tamarind Juice/Nectar I can get . . . the 'syrup', I can't. I thought I might try to make the syrup using the juice and natural sugar . . . much like making a simple/bar syrup. TV syrups are not available anywhere around here, so I'll just have to make do with some version of Coconut Creme.

Ive experimented on the Monkeypod without the Tamarind Syrup and have found that doubling the quantity of Tamarind Juice yields nice results.

its lighter and more refreshing..

another tip I have found.. make your monkeypods in punch form and let it sit for an hour or more... and it actually gets BETTER..

I guess the ingredients need time to blend and meld into eachother.

Modified Monkeypod

3.0 oz Tamarind Juice (a popular brand is Jumex)
0.5 oz Trader Vics KoKo Creme syrup (or some other coconut creme)
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.

I tried something similar to this when I attempted to make a monkey pod one time. I did not have the syrup, so I used simple syrup and incresed the juice by about 50% (not doubled). I did not have KoKo Kreme so I used Coco Real (which I use for pina coladas, blue hawaiians and tonga leis). I was not delighted with the results. I will give this modified version a try.

I've always liked this drink. That peeled tamarind fruit is weird looking.
Where's the mug?

MM, I just made this drink, it is pretty good but has a stronger coconut taste than I remember it having. The previous recipe was more like the one you made for me a few years back. I like the new one and I followed you recipe but it is more coconut flavored than tamarind flavored. I have to say it is much easier to make.

Mmmm...good job Monkeyman! This is one damn good drink. I used 1/2 oz. Coco Lopez and thought it was perfect. I did as you suggested and made a batch. An hour is too long to wait. Thanks!
