I asked Ryan Chetiyawardana, the king of cocktails in London, to come up with a super margarita for our restaurants. He adds a slice of mango dipped in Tajín seasoning, which is chilli powder, dehydrated lime juice and salt, which he says ‘gives a piquant salinity that contrasts the flavours wonderfully’.
45ml 100% agave blanco tequila
20ml freshly squeezed lime juice slice of mango
Tajín seasoning (see note)
Shake the tequila, Cointreau and lime juice very hard over a full shaker of cubed ice until the shaker is frosted. Double strain into a chilled cocktail glass, without ice, and garnish with the slice of mango dipped in Tajín seasoning.
