      Thanks to everyone who tuned into our IG Live last week where Aaron Melendrez, AKA @requiemforadrink, prepared homemade chamoy.

      Step 4
      Bring chiles, mango and fruit to a boil  in of the tamarindo/ jamaica water

      Salt 
      Ground spice blend 
      1 lime zest (don’t grind too hard, focus on getting green skin)
      1.5 cups of tamarindo/Jamaica agua but add more if you want your chamoy thinner consistency)
      Start blending on low for a minute 

      You can adjust sweetness by adding more sugar  
      If you like it a little more tart add the juice and the lime you zested
      Blend for another 15 seconds after every adjustment
