3 Easy Steps to Prepare the Tajín Margarita

You got it! Let’s break down the recipe into easy steps so you can whip up this flavor-packed Tajín margarita. Here we go!

3 Easy Steps to Prepare the Tajín Margarita

Step 1: Prepare the glass

Grab a shallow plate and pour coarse salt onto it. Combine Tajín Clásico seasoning with the remaining coarse salt in a separate shallow bowl and mix them well.

Take a lime wedge and run it around the rim of your margarita glass. It will help the salt-Tajín mixture stick to the glass. Once the rim is moistened, dip the glass into the salt-Tajín mixture, coating the entire rim evenly. Set the prepared glass aside.

Step 2: Make the margarita mix

In a cocktail shaker or mason jar with a tight-fitting cover, combine ounces of tequila blanco, triple sec, and freshly squeezed lime juice according to serving size.

After this, add a handful of ice cubes to the shaker or jar and shake it for about 10-15 seconds. It will help chill and dilute the margarita mix, creating the perfect consistency.

Step 3: Assemble and serve

Fill the prepared, salt-Tajín rimmed glass with fresh ice cubes. Strain the chilled margarita mix from the shaker or jar into the glass, being careful not to knock off the seasoned rim.

Now, give it a gentle stir with a cocktail stirrer or a spoon, and voilà! Your Tajín margarita is ready to be enjoyed. Garnish with a lime wedge or more Tajín seasoning for added taste.

And that’s it: simple, straightforward instructions to help you create this flavor-packed margarita at home. Trust me, you’ll be hooked once you take that first sip.

But wait, there’s more! Have you ever tried a Frozen Tajín Margarita? This one is a game-changer, especially on a hot summer day. We’re talking about that same iconic margarita mix blended with plenty of ice until it’s nice and slushy.

Then, we rim the glass with that glorious salt-Tajín mixture and boom! You’ve got a frosty, refreshing treat bursting with flavor in every sip, just like a flavor vacation in a glass.

Trust me, once you have tried these variations, you will never look at a regular margarita the same way again. The Spicy Chili Strawberry Margarita is like a fiesta for your taste buds. At the same time, the Frozen Tajín Margarita is the ultimate way to beat the heat while indulging in that iconic flavor combo.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 oz tequila blanco
  • 1 oz triple sec
  • 1 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 lime wedge
  • 1 tbsp Tajín Clásico seasoning
  • 1/2 tbsp coarse salt
  • Ice cubes

Instructions
 

  • Firstly, let’s get that glass ready. Take your lime wedge and run it around the rim of your margarita glass.
  • Now, mix together the coarse salt and Tajín seasoning on a small plate. Give it a little stir to combine the two.
  • After running the lime wedge around the rim, dip the moistened rim into the salt and Tajín mixture.
  • Combine the tequila blanco, triple sec, and freshly squeezed lime juice in a cocktail shaker.
  • Add a handful of ice cubes to the shaker and secure the lid tightly.
  • Now, shake vigorously for 10-15 seconds to chill and combine all those flavors.
  • Using a strainer, carefully pour the contents of the shaker into your prepared glass.
  • Optional but highly recommended: garnish your masterpiece with a lime wedge or wheel. Not only does it look pretty, but you can also give it a little squeeze to release extra lime aroma and flavor.

Notes

  • Use silver/Blanco tequila for best flavor.
  • Fresh lime juice is a must.
  • Adjust Tajín amount to the desired spice level.
  • Serve immediately for the best texture and flavor.

Storing and Freezing

Personally, I don’t recommend that you let those leftovers hang out in the fridge. If you do, all that gorgeous ice will melt, and your once-glorious margarita will be nothing but a disappointment.

And are you freezing it? Oh, hell no, my friend! That’s a surefire way to completely kill all those bold flavors you worked so hard to balance. Frozen margaritas are one thing, but this Tajín beauty needs to be sipped at peak frosty perfection. So do yourself a favor to mix up only what you need now. Savor every sip of that spicy, citrusy goodness fresh from the shaker.
