Agua de tamarindo is an agua fresca drink typically served throughout Spanish America. It is made from tamarind (a legume: tamarindus indica) after it has been boiled in water, has had its seeds removed, and has been liquefied and combined with sugar. It is typically sold at taquerías in Mexico, and central and south American restaurants. It has gained popularity also in the United States and elsewhere. Tamarindo is also sold as a flavour of soda, the first of which was produced by the company Jarritos.
