|1/4 cup granulated sugar, or to taste|
|1/4 cup fresh lime juice (from 2 fresh limes)|

|3/4 cup silver tequila or rum (optional)|

Blend in tequila or rum, if using. Blend in additional water, adding 1/4 cup at a time, until mango mixture reaches the desired consistency.

Add about 1/3 cup reserved mango to each glass, followed by 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons chamoy and a generous sprinkle of Tajín.

How do you use Tajin spice?
Salty-Sweet Fruit: Tajín shines when sprinkled on slices of mango, watermelon, pineapple or added to a fruit salad. Top your fruit blend before eating for visual appeal or toss the fruit in the spice mix to incorporate. Tajín is best added according to personal taste; just keep in mind a little goes a long way.
How to use mango powder in cooking?
Once you become familiar with the flavors in mango powder, you can start using it in your own cooking. This is a versatile seasoning and used in both sweet and savory dishes. It’s most commonly found in recipes for curries, chutneys, soups, and marinades although you don’t have to stop there.
What is Tajín made of?
Most recipes as well as the bottle of commercial Tajín are equal parts – salt, dehydrated lime powder, and red chile powder. At Andersen casa, we try to watch our sodium intake, and have found the “regular” Tajín to be a little too salty for our taste.
What is a good substitute for lime powder in Tajin?
lime powder – Lime powder is widely available, and adds actual lime flavor to the spice blend. Citric acid just adds the sour flavor (rather than lime), but is a good substitute if you can’t find lime powder. Most recipes as well as the bottle of commercial Tajín are equal parts – salt, dehydrated lime powder, and red chile powder.
