Tamarindo Champagne Cocktail

 

Ingredients

  • 1 bottle of Proseco

  • Tamarindo Simple Syrup

    • 2 cups tamarindo pods, peeled

    • 3 cups granulated sugar

    • 3 cups water

    • 1 lime, juiced

  • Dehydrated Limes

    • 2 limes, thinly sliced

Instructions — Tamarindo Simple Syrup

In a large pot, combine the water and granulated sugar. Set the stove to medium-high heat and whisk the mixture until the sugar has dissolved. Add the tamarind pods and lime juice. Bring to a boil. Once the syrup has boiled for about 2 minutes, lower to a simmer. Simmer for about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.

Instructions — Dehydrated Limes

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F. Line a sheet tray with parchment paper and evenly distribute the lime slices on the parchment. Make sure the lime slices are nice and thin. Pop it in the oven and let it dehydrate for 4 to 5 hours. Try not to open the oven too often. Let the limes do their thing. You’ll know when they’re done when they lose their stickiness and start feeling rough and dry.
