Tamarind Margarita

The tamarind margarita offers a taste that every fan of tequila needs to try. It’s a captivating flavor combination, with the sweet and sour flavor of the tamarind playing wonderfully off the tequila. Accenting it with a chili pepper rim sets it over the top, resulting in a drink that is extraordinary and a nice change of pace.

Tamarind Margarita

There's nothing like a tangy and mildly spicy margarita to kick off the summer! I love the combination of ginger and tamarind with lime — the ginger adds a tinge of spice, the tamarind is always nice and tangy, the lime adds tartness, and everything just works perfectly together.
