Standard mortar mix will work well for this. Be aware that it will become quite a bit brighter or lighter in color when dry than the old mortar .

  • You can add mortar mix coloring to match colors. Make sure it’s “exterior” mortar mix...

  • Yes colors can be added but this is even tougher than matching paint colors in my opinion, I have found it is best to etch the surface and repoint but since this is a small area it will be tough if not covering the entire area.
