Turmeric Margarita
Serves: 1 serving
 
Ingredients
  • 2 ounces silver tequila
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1 ounce fresh orange juice
  • 1 ounce Turmeric Honey Syrup (recipe follows)
  • Fresh lime wedge, optional
  • Pink salt, optional
  • Garnish: citrus rounds, edible blossoms*
Instructions
  1. Combine tequila, lime juice, orange juice, and Turmeric Honey Syrup in a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice and shake vigorously for 15 seconds.
  2. To salt the rim of the cocktail glass, if desired, rub the outside edge of the rim with lime and roll the wet edge in pink salt. Let dry.
  3. Fill glass with ice.
  4. Strain tequila mixture into glass. Garnish with citrus rounds and edible blossoms, if desired.
Notes
*We used untreated, organically grown fresh dahlia petals, cosmos, and marigold blossoms.

Note: Willa Van Nostrand, owner of Little Bitte Artisanal Cocktails, suggests replacing the tequila in this recipe with mezcal for a variation that includes layers of smoke and minerality.
