Iced tamarind

This drink is one of the most exotic drinks you can probably find at every coffee house in Vietnam. It's cheap, healthy and perfect for those who love sweet and tangy taste.

Ingredients: 2 servings
6 ounces of raw seedless tamarind (you can find it at any Asian store)
6 tbsp of sugar or more depending on your taste
4 ounces of toasted peanut
water and ice

In a pan, add tamarind, sugar and 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil, keep stirring until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture looks like caramel. Cool off
In each glass, pour in about half of the mixture.Add ice and stir well. Sprinkle peanut on top.
My ratio for tamarind mixture and ice is 1:2
