Dushi Tamarein

Dushi Tamarèin

The word 'Dushi' stands for sweet and 'Tamarèin' means Tamarind. These words are written in the local language of Curaçao, Papiamentu. Tamarind is one of the most beloved and popular fruits on our island. This local fruit was also the inspiration for our Senior Tamarind Liqueur.

The Dushi Tamarèin was created during 'Siman di Kultura', a very special week in Curaçao. 'Siman di Kultura' means Culture Week, and the goal of this week is to celebrate and preserve Curaçao's heritage. The locals wear beautiful folkloric dresses, listen to typical local music, and have delicious snacks and drinks.

This year, one of our mixologists at Landhuis Chobolobo - the House of the Real Curaçao Liqueur - decided it was time to make a new addition to our list of Signature Cocktails. Inspired by the colorful culture of our island, our local fruit Tamarind and our brand heritage, the 'Dushi Tamarèin' was created.

Below you will find the recipe. We hope you enjoy making this cocktail as much as we do, and that you think of Curaçao with every sip you take. Cheers.
