This is my new favorite margarita to teach and to drink. Tajín powder, a mixture of chile, salt, and citric acid, makes an interesting change from a salt rim.
I love, love, love this recipe!!! I love the fact that this recipe calls for tamarind ponds, and THAT is what makes this so tasty! I grew up eating tamarind candies in Mexico. Now as an adult craving an adult tamarind beverage with some tequilita, it took me a while to find the right mixture. Stumbling upon this recipe is exactly what I’ve been craving! Other recipes call for the tamarind syrup, which really falls short with the tamarind flavor for me. This is a perfect blend of tangy, sweet, sour, and a little spice if you’d like. Thank you for this recipe, you hit it right on the money. This will be my forever favorite. Salud!
If you like tamarind, you'll love this. If you don't like tamarind, choose something else. I used Cazadores as the other reviewer mentioned. Yum!
My friends and I love this recipe! Some things to note: the taste of tamarind is not for everybody. However, if you grew up eating Mexican candy, you probably know and like its taste very much. This margarita captures the salty, tangy, sweetness of tamarindo very well. The "muddy" color of the margaritas that the other reviewer describes is to be expected, because tamarind paste is reddish brown. This recipe goes wonderfully with Cazadores Reposado. With a kick of lime and Tajín on the rim, this margarita is a tasty way to add a little bit of chamoy to your cocktails.
Hmm. Didn't love this recipe. The color is a little muddy which wasn't a great start. The tamirind paste is odd. I wanted to like this more but between that and the chili rim just a little too savory for my taste. Too bad because the tamarind paste was expensive and I have no idea what to do with the rest of it. Sorry Fine cooking. You usually knock it out of the park.
