Tamarind Margaritas

July 12th, 2016

Margarita TamarindIf you love sharp, citrusy and slightly sour flavours, like I do, then you’ll love tamarind margaritas. They make perfect partners to Mexican and Asian food.  The good news is you can make up the margarita mix in advance and keep it in the fridge. Believe me,  spying a jar of this potent mix at the end of a long and tiring day is extremely uplifting!
N.B: You can buy tamarind concentrate at most Asian stores or online from Tesco – look for Natco or Blue Dragon. Don’t mistake the concentrate with the tamarind pulp which is messy and time consuming to prepare and doesn’t deliver the same results!!!

1 tbsp tamarind concentrate
250ml tequila
75g caster sugar
6 limes
Crushed ice
Here’s What You Do:
Place the tamarind concentrate  in a blender with the tequila, sugar, lime juice, water and a handful of ice cubes and blend until smooth.

Dip the glass rims into a little lime juice and then into salt, next, pour the margarita mix into the glasses and serve.
