Tamarind Lemonade


We tried the sweet and sour tamarind lemonade and LOVED it. Here is the recipe. Really easy to prepare. Serves best when chilled. We recommend you use soda water (or sparkling water) but normal water will do just as well.

  • Slices of 1 lemon

  • 4 cups icy soda or sparkling water, or just plain water

Recipe Notes

Normal table salt tasted really boring so I used himalayan pink salt in this lemonade. Totally worth it. Huge props to UrbanPlatter for their top notch himalayan pink salt. They have recently opened a separate Vegan gourmet category in their store, and it's a vegan's paradise. You should check them out.

  1. 3 days ago, I didn’t even know this recipe existed (and I’m Indian)., and now this is my fav “juice” EVER! Adding roasted cumin to this drink is genius! Thanks for sharing.
