One of our favourites, the Tamarind Margarita is a great tangy cocktail using one of Mexico’s most loved fruit used in drinks, sweets and desserts.
The fun thing about cocktails is that you can experiment with different ingredients and different quantities so that you tailor them to your own tastes. We make our cocktails the way we do because that’s how we like them and we hope you do to! Don’t be afraid to play around.
To make our Tamarind Margarita, add the following to a cocktail shaker:
– 35ml 100% agave tequila
– 12.5ml triple sec
– 20ml sugar syrup
– 12.5ml fresh lime juice
– 20ml tamarind puree
We always use 100% agave tequila and we recommend you do too. Just like food, cocktails made from good quality ingredients = good output. Tequila has to be made from at least 51% agave, so 100% just means that it’s all of the good stuff.
Add ice to the shaker and attach the lid so that it stays on during your Tom-Cruise-in-Cocktail impression, then mixxxx it up. We don’t suggest you start throwing your shaker around immediately, the aim is to shake vigorously until the contents of the shaker are combined, not wreak havoc in your kitchen.
Dip the rim of your glass in fresh lime juice and then into salt to create a salt rim. Now pour the content of the shaker into your glass through a strainer to catch the ice.
Now all you need to do is enjoy this authentic taste of Mexico and send us your pictures and comments to let us know how you got on.
