Tamarind Margarita

tamarind margarita recipe

Tamarind is a hardwood tree that produces pods filled with a sweet and sour fruit. When this fruit is concentrated and mixed with tequila and lime it is magic. We got hooked on these tamarind margaritas in San Miguel D’Allende. I tried two versions when I returned home. One with the tamarind concentrate, which I purchased at a Latin market, and one with tamarind syrup from an international market which recommends this for certain recipes in Indian cuisine. I chose to share the one with the tamarind pulp. The flavor is uniquely distinct and adds more complexity to the margarita. It is a wonderful balance of sweet and sour and spicy, especially when you rim the glass with hot chili salt. Salud!
