Cocktail O’Clock: Mexico Meets Thailand

Here’s one the will make you reeeeeally mad that you live somewhere so freaking cold. Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit in Mexico shared their recipe for a margarita that mixes things up with two typically southeast Asian ingredients — tamarind and mint — to make pretty much the most tropical drink ever.

Sorry about the cold.

Tamarind Mint Margarita

1.5 oz Tamarind Concentrate
4 Fresh Mint Leaves
1.5 oz Tequila
½ oz Controy (Mexican Orange Liqueur)
Dash of Lemon Juice
Dash of Simple Syrup

Mix all ingredients in a shaker filled with ice, shake vigorously and serve in salt-rimmed frosted glass.

  1. @erica excellent point. funny that I can’t think of any other example of tamarind used in mexican food, except for jarritos.

  2. @erica Without a doubt, tamarind jarritos is actually my top soda choice of all time.

    @BS I need to share some Mexican recipes for simple tamarind candies like ollitos or pulparindo. Lots of mexican grocers carry tamarind paste too for recipes or drinks like aqua de tamarindo.
