SPRING MARGARITA WITH KUMQUATS

Ingredients

  • 2 oz Cazadores Blanco Tequila (or any good white tequila)
  • 1 oz Fresh Kumquat Juice
  • 0.5 oz Agave Nectar
  • 1 teaspoon Whole Pink Peppercorns
  • Mezcal (optional for a rinse)
  • Himalayan Salt (for the rim)

Instructions

  1. Rinse the serving glass with a touch of Mezcal (optional)

  2. Rim the serving glass with Himalayan salt (optional)

  3. In a cocktail shaker, add the Tequila, Kumquat Juice, Agave Syrup and the whole Pink Peppercorns

  4. Add ice, shake vigorously and strain into the rimmed glass over ice

  5. Garnish with a whole Kumquat skewer

Recipe Notes

1 pounds of Kumquats will yield approximately 10 ounces of fresh juice enough for about 10 cocktails. If you have to muddle them, 3 average size Kumquats per cocktail would be sufficient to extract enough juice.

We actually enjoyed chewing on the pink peppercorn bits and they looked awesome floating in the drink, but if you find their texture irritating, you can also fine strain them once you have shaken your cocktail.
