Calamansi juice/concentrate? Bklyn or Queens...

pitu Jul 30, 2013 06:22 AM

Looking to make gallons of Calamansi-ade for a party -- I didn't see the frozen juice/concentrate at Hong Kong Market in Sunset Park. Did I miss it? Where else can I look?
Also, any recs for brand/type? For instance: http://www.philamfood.com/search.php?...

THX!

    Ive bought the concentrate in the past at that Southeast Asian Grocery store in Manhattan Chinatown on I think Baxter. Dont remember it from my last visit to Hong Kong Market (which has a new name now and increased freezer space on the right as you enter)

      Thx JenKalb! Probably the place on Mosco. Frozen or shelf-stable glass bottle?

        no, not the thai place. Think I meant Mulberry, not Mott.
        Its this place between Canal and Bayard, on the W side of the street, just up from the park.Ive bought frozen calamansi concentrate there\ and lots of other interesting stuff.

        Asia Market Corporation
        71-1/2 Mulberry Street

      I buy Manila Gold brand calamansi concentrate from the Phil-Am Food Mart in Woodside. It's really bright and tart, perfect for the summer.

        http://www.jjdrinks.com.sg/products/p... I was partial to the d'Jus calamansi juice, though I'm not sure if it's sold in NYC.

          thx - alas, I haven't been able to find JJ d'Jus in NYC or online. Pretty much everything I've found has sweetener added.

          I ended up using the shelf-stable liquid concentrate from Asia Market on Mulberry -- liked it better and easier to manage than Manila Gold frozen, which they also carry. The frozen, and also the premade drinks I tried, tastes too much like Sprite!
