Have a citrus blast this summer with a Tequila Mosambi Cocktail

As we bid adieu to summer, it’s time to enjoy the last of the summer fruits with this peppy tropical drink that is perfect for keeping us hydrated on a hot summer afternoon.

We have experimented with fresh flavours of the fragrant Meyer Lemon, the sweet juicy Clementine, as well as the aromatic Bergamot this summer. So, is it any wonder that next on our list would be Sweet Limes?

Sweet Limes belong to the genus Citrus limettioides and have a unique flavour. They are tangy, mildly sweet, and juicy. Sweet limes have the same essence as lime but without the pucker-inducing qualities. Since they have a low acidic content, their flavour is slightly flatter and mellower than other citrus fruits. The origins of the Sweet Lime are unknown; however, they are grown in hot climatic conditions and are said to be a hybrid between a Mexican lime and a sweet lemon.

Sweet Lime or Mosambi as it is known in India is one of the favourite Juices in the hot scorching Indian summer heat. In fact, it is one of the most hydrating, nutritious, and refreshing juices amongst a plethora of fruit juices.

The Sweet Lime is a versatile citrus fruit that is packed with vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that have tremendous health benefits. They are used for a number of ailments like sore throat, nausea, indigestion, and fever, etc.

Mara Mari Cocktail

There are a lot of fruit juices to make great cocktails. However, nothing screams more tropical than pineapple juice. Combine it with sweet lime and one gets an awesome combination.

Mara Mari is a peppy Mumbai street juice that is a delicious combination of Pineapples and Sweet Lime Juice with some black salt and spices as flavouring agents. It is a glass of sheer delight.


  • 2 oz / 60 ml Tequila
  • 3 oz / 90 ml Fresh Sweet Lime (Mosambi) Juice
  • 2 oz / 60 ml Fresh Pineapple Juice
  • ½ oz / 15 ml Agave Syrup
  • ¼ oz / 7 ml Grenadine Syrup
  • ¼ Bar Spoon Black Pepper Powder
  • ¼ Bar Spoon Black Salt
  • 4 Pineapple slices lightly grilled
  • Garnish: Chaat Masala for Rim, Sweet Lime Slice, and Fresh Flowers


  • Muddle the pineapple slices in a shaker tin
  • Then add the rest of the ingredients except Grenadine and Chaat Masala
  • Rim the glass with Chaat Masala.
  • Hard shake and strain into the prepared glass.
  • Add the Grenadine Syrup so that it slowly sinks to the bottom of the glass
  • Garnish with a Sweet Lime slice and Fresh Flowers.
  • Drink, Smile, and Repeat.

Tasting Notes: The combination of Sweet Lime Juice and Pineapple is peppy and kicks up the citrus punch in the cocktail. The Sweet Lime Juice has a fresh and refreshing taste. The Pineapple goes hand in hand with the sharp bite of tequila. The black salt, pepper, and the chaat masala on the rim elevate the flavour of the two fruit juices. The grenadine syrup adds a splash of colour and oomph to the cocktail as well as balancing the sweetness along with the agave syrup.
