Show Notes for Episode 36 - Indian Folk Tales

Jul 7, 2019

Here's where we tell you how to find the recipe for The Bengal Tiger, the tales we told, and the podcast we mentioned!

The Booze:

The Bengal Tiger
-50 ml White rum
-10 ml Brandy
-60 ml Pineapple juice
-20 ml Pomegranate juice
-Sweet and Sour mix to taste
-Garnish with Gondhoraj lebu slice (or lime)

In a shaker filled with ice pour the juices, the white rum, and the brandy, along with some sweet and sour mix, and shake. Pour the mixture into a tall glass filled with ice. Garnish with a wedge of gondhoraj lebu, twist a peel over the drink, and rub the peel on the rim of the glass for freshness and aroma.

What's a Gondhoraj lebu? A unique lime that you may not be able to find outside of India, but by all accounts it is absolutely delicious. We weren't able to find one because we live in UTAH but we used a regular lime instead and it's super yummy!
