Tang and tamarind is an unlikely pairing for a margarita. Chef Emily Ellyn’s Rocket Man Margarita’s ‘Rocket Fuel’ is sweet, tart, plummy, and slightly spicy and when paired with smokey mezcal will enliven your senses – sending them to the moon!
Prep Time: 4 minutes
Yield: 8-ounce cocktail
Glassware: Rocks Glass, Margarita Glass
Rim the cocktail glass by running a wedge of lime along the rim of the glass.
Pour a ¼ cup Fresh Origins’ Herb Crystals® Habanero onto a plate.
Roll the edges of the glass on the plate so the mixture adheres, then set the glass aside.
Create the cocktail by filling a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in the mezcal, Rocket Fuel, fresh lime, and fresh orange juice. Shake until chilled and thoroughly mixed and then strain into rimmed glass.
Garnish with a Banderilla Tama-Roca Tamarindo Mexican Candy Stick dusted in Tang!
Tangy Tamarind Syrup: Heat 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup water together in a saucepot and whisk in 2 tablespoons Tang, 1 tablespoon Tamarindo Aqua Fresca Powder, and ½ teaspoon dried chili powder. Heat until dissolved. Cool and use as desire.
