Hi, this Lauden Vergara and I'm with ABC Bartending School here in Miami, Florida. In this clip we're going to show you how to make a Tamarindo Margarita. Well, what is a Margarita? Basically, a Mexican drink made with tequila, triple sec which is an orange liqueur and sour mix which is a concentrated lemon lime, gives you a little frosting with the top. We're going to make this one frozen. Okay. We're going to start off with putting your blender; okay; put in some ice about three-fourths of the way; okay. I'm going to add some Patron tequila which is one of the most popular tequilas right now and one of my favorites, to top that off. Pour about four seconds in there. Then we're going to switch off to Grand Marnier. Grand Marnier is a cognac based orange liqueur which is a high end, a very strong of hint of orange and it's a lot stronger than the regular triple sec. So this is a very strong drink; you have to about two seconds worth; okay. You're going to add some sour mix and then you're going to have some tamarindo pop which you can find at any grocery store; okay. You want to good, add a good flavor in there; quick squirt. Then we're going to go ahead and blend this. Okay. As we're blending this, I'm going to rim the glass; you're going to rim your glass with chili pepper. We're going to add a little heat to this drink; okay. So make sure you don't go ahead and like stick your lip on there and then find it too hot for your flavor. We're going to go ahead and pour this out and you can add a little bit of the chili pepper over the top or if you find an actual tamarindo fruit, you can go ahead and throw a little piece of tamarindo in there and make it a nice Tamarindo Margarito. Thank you for watching; this is Lauden.
