- 1/4 lb tamarind from a pliable block
- 1 cup boiling-hot water
- 3 1/2 tablespoons superfine granulated sugar
- 6 oz (3/4 cup) tequila
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Garnish:lime wedges; granulated sugar for coating rims of glasses
Break tamarind into small pieces (1/2 cup packed) and soak in boiling-hot water, stirring occasionally and breaking up chunks, until softened, about 10 minutes. Strain through a sieve into a large measuring cup, using a rubber spatula to force through as much pulp as possible. Discard remaining solids. Whisk in sugar and 1/4 tsp salt until dissolved, then cool to room temperature, about 10 minutes.
Stir in tequila and lime juice. Serve over ice.
