Tirk Kos Krote Komquat (Cambodian Komquat Drink)

Tirk Kos Krote Komquat (Cambodian Komquat Drink) created by Random Rachel

A refreshing tart carbonated komquat-ade from Cambodia. Calamondins are a cross between a kumquat and a mandarin - I was unable to find either at my local grocery so I made it using 1 medium sized naval orange. The original recipe calls for 3 tbsp of sugar, which makes an incredibly tart beverage - I used sprite and 1/2 cup of sugar because the original was too strong for my tastes. from khmerkromrecipes.com

ingredients

  • 4 kumquats or 4 calamondins
  • 1 12 cups club soda or 1 1/2 cups Sprite
  • 12 cup sugar
  • 1 12 cups ice cubes

directions

  • Slice 1 calamondin, remove seeds, and set aside.
  • Juice the remaining three calamondins into a small pitcher, remove seeds. I used the juice of 1 medium sized orange instead since I was unable to find calamondins.
  • Add the sugar and Club soda to the calamondin juice, stir until dissolved. The original recipe calls for 3 tbsp of sugar, which I found to be very tart - using 1/2 cup will leave you with a beverage sweetened similar to lemonade.
  • Add ice cubes and garnish with slices of calamondin, serve immediately.

    Tart and refreshing and really quite different. Never thought of using kumquat's in an 'ade'. Bought a tin of kumquats from Corfu (they're not in season yet).
