I hear what you’re saying, it’s only Tuesday. So What? after trying this incredibly smooth, and totally wonderful liquor from West Africa, called Tambour, I realized that it would be the perfect accompaniment to a fall cocktail, to warm the soul. The African Sunrise is a cocktail so delicious, yet strong enough, that it can make you feel equal parts delight and tranquility. It’s also very easy to make, requiring few ingredients:


1.5 oz – Tambour Original Sodabi
1.5 oz – Pineapple Juice
1/2 cup – Ice Cubes
1 oz – Club Soda
1 dash – Grenadine


Combine Tambour Original and pineapple juice in a shaker with ice. Shake until contents are cold, then pour into glass. Add club soda, then gently pour in grenadine to prevent mixing.

Garnish with a Maraschino cherry and a slice of pineapple and enjoy!
