For the Tamarind Juice

For the Tamarind Margarita

  • 1 teaspoon Tajin Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt
  • Lime halved
  • 4 oz tamarind juice
  • 4 oz blanco tequila
  • 2 oz triple sec
  • 2 teaspoons agave syrup or maple syrup, simple syrup, or sugar cane syrup
  • 4 large ice cubes


To make the Tamarind Juice

  • Combine the tamarind paste and water in a pot and bring to a boil, stirring with a whisk.  Immediately turn off heat, cover, and let sit for 30 minutes on the counter.
  • Stir and strain the mixture into a bowl, discarding any solids. Let cool to room temperature.

To make the Tamarind Margarita

  • Mix Tajin Seasoning with the Himalayan sea salt and place on a small flat plate. Prepare two coupe glasses by running the edge of half a lime against the edges. Gently press the edges of the glasses into the salt mixture, and refrigerate the glasses.
  • Combine the tamarind juice, blanco tequila, triple sec, maple syrup, and ice cubes in a cocktail shaker.
  • Shake and pour into the glasses with salted rims. Serve.


Make the tamarind juice far enough ahead of time so that it has time to cool before you need it.
