Curated this: removed references to fresh ingredients - that's assumed here at Kindred Cocktails. Changed amount of cardamom powder from dash to pinch. Changed amount of tamarind from dash to teaspoon (I'm guessing you want a small amount of tamarind paste muddled with the ginger). 

When you say "shake with ice in batches", do you mean that all the liquid is batched, then shaken over fresh ice for each drink? Are the muddled ingredients meant to be quartered and added to each fresh shaker?  Thanks,  Zachary

Really like this. It hits the intersection of "interesting " and "highly drinkable".
