Cocktail O’Clock: Mexico Meets Thailand

Posted by on January 5 2012 in Drinks, Recipe

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.

    they have tamarind jarritos (mmmmmmm), so it is technically really un-mexican?

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

    @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.

    That’s true. You can’t buy tamarind concentrate just anywhere.
