Drinks

As you might have noticed, my Drink Category has the smallest amount of recipes on it. I’ve included drink recipes that most Assyrian enjoy on a daily basis (tea and Turkish Coffe). You’ll also find one of my favorite drinks of all time, made with Tamarind Syrup. The syrup can be used to make other drinks, including Tamarindo margaritas!

But I don’t want this to be a neglected category, so recently I’ve added my favorite lemonade recipe. Also, I am currently working on a Limoncello recipe, so stay tuned! Come back often to see what else I come up with; time to get creative!

Tamarind is a tree that grows long, edible pods. The pods contain seeds that look like shiny, black beads. The paste that grows around the seeds is used in many countries to make tamarind syrup. Tamarind is also used to add a sour taste to food, and to give food that distinct tamarind flavor.
