I’m back with another Essiespice drink recipe! Essiespice and I shot together for a Valentine’s Day themed shoot, and while she did the frying, chopping and seasoning I did the shaking and pouring. I especially like this take on the classic dark & stormy because the tangy sweet flavor of the tamarind emphasizes the crisp ginger in this drink.
What you’ll need:
- Juice from half a lime
- 1 tablespoon Essiespice TamarindOH! sauce
- 4 oz. dark rum
- Ginger Beer
Makes 2 drinks
Shake the lime juice, tamarind and dark rum in a cocktail shaker. Pour over ice in the highball glass and top off with ginger beer. Garnish with candy ginger and/or a lime wheel.
So go ahead and spice things up this Valentine’s Day for you and that special someone with this kick of a drink. Enjoy!
