Recipe Type: Cocktail
Serves: 1
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • Slice of lime
  • Ice cubes - enough to ¾ fill the glass
  • 2 shots of tamarind cordial (50 ml)
  • 1 shot of silver tequila (25 ml)
  • 1 shot of triple sec (25ml)
  • 1 shot of lime juice (25ml)
  1. Place the salt and chilli powder in a dish and mix well.
  2. Rub half of the rim of the glass with the slice of lime.
  3. Dip the rim of the glass in the dish with the salt and chilli powder.
  4. Place the ice and tequila into a blender and process until the ice is crushed.
  5. Now add the remaining ingredients and process for a few seconds to mix the cocktail. The ice should now be slushy.
  6. Empty the contents into the glass.
  7. Serve and enjoy.
If you are making a few margaritas it is worth mixing a bulk load of salt and chilli powder as it is easier to dip the rim of the glass into a larger quantity. Just keep a ratio of 3:1 of salt to chilli powder.
  1. This sounds like a drink worth trying, but as tamarind cordial is hardly a household product, I’m perplexed that the recipe would be featured without a word of explanation, tips on sourcing–or maybe even a way of infusing one’s own.
