Tamarind Whiskey Sour

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 drink

At his funky Thai restaurant Pok Pok, chef Andy Ricker uses ingredients for his drinks that match the flavors of his food: sour, sweet, aromatic and even a little salty. This tamarind-spiked whiskey sour has been one of his best sellers since he created it years ago.

  1. Ice
  2. 1 1/2 ounces bourbon
  3. 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  4. 1 tablespoon tamarind paste mixed with 1 tablespoon hot water and cooled
  5. 1/2 ounce Rich Simple Syrup
  6. 1 orange slice and 1 jarred sour cherry (optional), for garnish
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the remaining ingredients except the garnishes; shake well. Pour into a chilled double rocks glass and garnish with the orange and cherry. Serve with a wide straw.
