Tamarind spiced with coriander is simmered into a rich syrup, making it a true delight in this juicy no-alcohol drink. Fresh pineapple and coconut water add to the tropical cocktail-like vibes. It’s best enjoyed reclining at the beach or just pretending you're at one.


Tamarind Coriander Syrup:


  1. Add the diced pineapple to a 14-ounce Collins glass and muddle with a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon until it becomes a juicy pulp. Top with a big scoop of ice cubes then add the coconut water and tamarind syrup. Stir together then garnish the glass with the pineapple wedge and enjoy.
  2. Crack each tamarind pod to remove the pulp then discard the shells and stringy fibers. Combine the tamarind pulp, brown sugar, coriander seeds and 2 cups water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Lower the heat to medium and cook at a rapid simmer, stirring frequently to help break up the pulp and prevent the sugar from scorching, until the pulp is loosened from the seeds, 25 to 30 minutes.
  3. Strain the syrup through a fine-mesh sieve into a heat-safe glass jar; discard the solids. Let cool to room temperature then cover and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks. Makes about 1 cup.
