Tamarind Margaritas

Servings: 8 to 12

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.

Ingredients

  • 6 oz. whole tamarind pods, peeled, or 1/2 oz. tamarind paste
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 cups boiling water
  • 1-1/2 cups reposado tequila
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice; more as needed
  • Tajín seasoning powder
  • 1 lime, halved lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/4-inch slices

Preparation

  • Put the tamarind pods or paste and the sugar in a large heatproof bowl. Cover with the boiling water. Let stand until cool, about 30 minutes. (If using pods, rub the pulp into the water with your fingers, and then strain over another bowl or into a pitcher to remove the seeds.) Add the tequila and lime juice.
  • Put some Tajín powder on a small plate. Moisten the rim of each glass with a lime slice, and dip into the Tajín. Fill glasses with ice, then add the margarita mixture. Garnish each with a lime slice.
