Labor Day is around the corner and this Mama is prepping with chamoy michelada rim dip. It's the perfect balance of sweet and tangy with a kick. Mexican candies are my favorite so by default this rim is amazing to me. It's also low in calories and pairs well with margaritas, beer and fruit. The possibilities are endless with this. I had to show you all how easy it is to make! Don't bother buying rim dip anymore. This recipe is better than the store bought dips. 😉

I've measured out the ingredients to make about 5-6 drinks. You can definitely squeeze 7-8 drinks out of it but it ultimately depends on what you like and how much rim you like. Double the batch if you're making more than 6 drinks.


4 Pulparindo ~ 6 - 8 candies may be needed if the candies are on the smaller side. Sometimes the boxed ones look half the size of the individual ones I get from the liquor store (even though the package shows the same .49 oz).

1 lime (use 1/2 for juice)

1/4 cup Chamoy

1/4 cup Tajin

The Mexican candy can be found at any Mexican/Latin grocery store or carneceria. Tajin and Chamoy are pretty common in the Walmart Latin food aisle. Sometimes they have Mexican candies as well. All items are linked through Amazon as well, just click each ingredient to purchase.


  1. Grab a small saucepan and heat over low-medium heat. When the pot is heated, add the Pulparindos. The goal is to melt and break the candies down. Watch the heat. We don't want to burn these. Stir and breakdown candies consistently. (4-ish minutes).

  2. Add Chamoy. Continue mixing and stirring until Pulparindos are completely broken down in the Chamoy.(2-ish minutes).

  3. Add Tajin. Mix & stir for 30 seconds.

  4. Add the entire bottle of Lucas. Mix & stir for 30 seconds.

  5. Add lime juice from 1/2 the lime. Mix & stir for 30 seconds.

  6. Remove pot from heat and pour mixture in a storage container with enough space to dip beer cans and/or cocktail glasses.

  7. Let mixture cool and reach room temperature. I usually prep this in advance about 3-4 hours before consuming. If consumed immediately after, the mixture will be extra sticky and runny. I like it to be candy like and stuck to my can. Wait a few hours!

  8. Once mixture has cooled, take an ice cold Mango White Claw, beer of choice or cocktail glass, and twist into the mixture.


The key is to not burn the candy at the beginning. Use low heat to be safe and break it up. Be patient.

You can also use any Lucas flavor. Sandia (watermelon) is another favorite. The chamoy flavor is a good neutral for any beer or cocktail. Try these sandia flavored Pulparindos! I like to mix 2 sandia with 2 regular ones and 1 sandia lucas for my watermelon margarita cravings.

Store in a round food container like these plastic restaurant style containers here.
