Enjoy at: Baobab Lounge
500 W River St. in the Plant Riverside District
Made with: Tamarind, passionfruit, Inverroche amber gin, cinnamon sugar rim
Sweet, yet tart, Baobab Lounge’s Tamarind Martini is a palate-pleaser for sure. Bartender Joshua Davis (below) breaks down the ingredients:
“The Tamarind Martini is made with passionfruit and tamarind, which is a fruit a lot people associate with the Caribbean, but it’s actually indigenous to Africa. . . It looks like a peanut, but it’s not. It’s really a tart fruit, so the drink has a subtle sweetness yet tartness.”
The cocktail features South African amber gin Inverroche and is finished with a sweet, spicy cinnamon sugar rim.
