Contrary to popular opinion, I wasn’t the first person in the world to add tamarind paste to a margarita. However, I did name it, and perfect the recipe for the restaurant, so I’m including it here. I’m sure there are a lot of people who would love to get their hands on this recipe.

Nate – Always remember, garbage in, garbage out. Get yourself a nice reposado tequila for this one.
Jeffery, thanks for the recipe, its one of our favorites. What tequila do you use? Thanks Nate
Being heavily influenced by Filipino friends, co-workers, girlfriend, etc, I’ve developed a real taste for tamarind, so as soon as I saw this, I knew it was going to be a hit around here, and it was. Thanks for such a simple idea and such a great name!
