Agua de Tamarindo - Tamarind Water -

This is a classic drink served on the streets of Mexico. If you like things sweeter, double up on the sugar since tamarind makes this drink pretty tart. I however, love the sourness of it! This drink is just so refreshing and delicious served on a summer’s eve, or as a signature cocktail to serve with tacos to make a real Mexican Fiesta!
