  • Total: 10 minutes

Ingredients (6)

  • 1 oz tequila
  • 1 oz pure beef stock (beef and bones; no added salt or spices)
  • 1 tablespoon tamarind paste
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar

  1. Make ginger-lime syrup by bringing lime juice to a boil in a small saucepan. Add sugar and ginger, and lower heat. Simmer and stir for 5 minutes, or until sugar dissolves and ginger infuses syrup. Let cool. Makes about 2/3 cup of syrup.
  2. Thin tamarind paste for use in cocktail by putting it into a bowl and whisking in about a tablespoon of warm water, a little bit at a time until you get a smooth, thin, syrupy consistency. Set aside.
  3. To make cocktail, place 3 or 4 ice cubes in a cocktail shaker. Add tequila, beef stock, ginger-lime simple syrup and 1/2 oz of the thinned out tamarind paste. Shake well. Pour into a highball or margarita glass and garnish with beef jerky and a slice of fresh lime.
