  • 2 tsp of Lucas baby powder(mango flavor)

  • Tools
  • Shot Glasses.

Mexican Candy Shot Recipe With Chamoy steps

  •  Gather all needs: Gather all the ingredients besides you. If you want to make mango juice at home, make it immediately using a blender. Otherwise, it is easier to use Jumex mango flavor as you can buy it easily. And if you can’t find tequila nearby, you can skip it. It’s optional, but the shot is mainly made with tequila to add a strong flavor. But you can’t ignore the Chamoy sauce or Chamoy candy for the prominent taste.
    Gather all needs
  •  Spread out dry powders and chamoy on the plates: Take a plate and spread 2 tsp of Lucas baby powder and 1 tsp of Muecas chili powder together. It needs to coat the edge of the glass. Take another plate and pour some sauce into it. Spread out.

  •  Dip the border of the shot-glass in Chamoy: Now, grab your shot-glass and dip the top margin of the glass into the Chamoy sauce over the plate. Take lime juice at 2 tsp and rub it inside the edge of the glass.

  • Coat the edge of the glass with dry powders: After that, you have to rotate the borders with spreading powders and coat the mixture deeply in the margin line of the glass again. Now set aside the glass.

  •  Place some ice cubes into another glass: Take another glass and place some cubes of ice into it. If you don’t want cold drinks, skip them. But in cold flavor, you get some refreshments as well.

  •  Pour tequila into the shot glass: You need to pour a balanced amount of tequila into the glass. The proportional amount I recommend to you is to maintain the ratio of juice and tequila 2:1.

  • Add the mango juice with other items: In this step, pour the mango juice into the rest space of the glass. Add some sugar, salt, and lime juice as your preference. Now, shake it in a cocktail shaker or stir it until all items turn into a thick liquid shot.
