This week we are tasting Double Happiness‘ own version of the summer favourite, the ‘Margarita’. A cocktail whose origins are harder to track down than Wally, but we’re not interested in a history lesson are we? In this version of an “East meets Mexico” style cocktail, we take the classic Margarita and kick it in the side with a few extras. Tamarind syrup in lieu of orange liqueur, mandarin juice for an extra dimension, and to kick it all off, a blend of numbing Szechuan pepper and rock salt.
50ml Tromba Blanco
30ml lime juice
20ml tamarind syrup
6 mandarin segments
Muddle mandarin segments in boston glass. Add tequila, lime juice and tamarind syrup to glass. Top with ice and shake hard for 10-15 seconds. Double Strain into a martini style glass, rimmed with Szechuan Salt.
