To me, the best cocktails are those that, after the first sip, leave me wondering “what’s in this?“! This one is simply the juice from one lime, tequila, a very small splash of Mezcal and St. Germain. This cocktail is absolutely delicious! Just a hint of the smoky Mezcal to offset the floral, sweet St. Germain. It’s perfect! Sorry, no pretty garnish, I used my last lime 😉
What do you get when you combine fresh muddled jalapeño, fresh lime, fresh grapefruit, Tequila and St. Germain? My perfect slightly spicy, tart and not too sweet Margarita. Give it a shot!
2 ounces silver tequila (I used 1800)
3/4 ounce St. Germain
1 ounce fresh squeezed grapefruit
3/4 ounce fresh squeezed lime
a piece of fresh jalapeño the size of a quarter, muddled in the bottom
Shake vigorously over ice and pour into a salt rimmed glass. Enjoy!
