The Tamarind Margarita: Boat Drink Recipes

After one sip, you’ll be livin’ like Jose.

It’s important not to forget our friends in the western Caribbean. All too often focus seems to sit in the eastern Caribbean which I personally love so much, and I need to be mindful of the wonderful countries that make of the eastern boarder. In doing that, I think we all need to drink some tequila!

This week’s boat drink recipe is the Tamarind Margarita! The deliciously flavorful tamarind fruit, commonly used in Latin American cuisine adds a twist to the standard margarita mixture. Is anyone else a fan of this exotic flavor?

If not, you might be after this drink!

    I’m all about Tropical Fruits & Flavors! Tamarind has a Unique taste dat would work well it Sour & Bitter Drinks. I will try this but (I Hate Tequila) and will Switch it out for a Spiced Rum (Cruzan 9 Spice) instead wit a Splash of Amaretto for the Zing… Not to Sure about the Chili around the Rim either but hey wat Margarita doesn’t an item around its Rim lol
