It’s always a good time for a margarita and there is one at NYC’s Cull & Pistol that should be on your must-sip list: the Tamarind Margarita. Made with a delicious blend of Curamia tequila, orange liqueur, fresh lime juice and housemate honey-tamarind paste, the tasty tipple is served on the rocks with a chili salt rim and garnished with a lime wheel.
“This great spin on the traditional margarita allows for the tequila to shine through while creating a perfect balancing act between its ingredients,” says Dafna Mizrahi, Curamia Tequila co-founder. “The orange liqueur and honey-tamarind paste, which provides a sweet and sour tangy/tart flavor, works well is nicely balanced by the lime and tequila creating a margarita that is different and with a very unique flavor profile.”
The drink — created by Cull & Pistol’s Ashman Predhan — is a great compliment to the seasonal seafood menu at the Michelin-acclaimed restaurant, located at NYC’s buzzy Chelsea Market.
