You already know that I love a margarita. That is entirely my mom’s fault. But I have found it hard to get the sweet-salt-sour balance right when I make it at home. I have used simple syrup to sweeten my margaritas, but honey makes an easier low-maintenance sweetener and if you get the amount right it adds a little extra flavour to the margarita.
So I tried out a honey margarita. The first time I did it there was not enough honey so the flavour was lost. Then I made it too sweet… the thing is, I really love sour things. My secret embarrassing behaviour is that I eat salted lemon wedges for dessert sometimes. (Yes, my husband knows and has decided to overlook that). I finally think I have the ideal balance for a honey margarita anyone would like.
So, Happy Friday, and why don’t you join me in a drink?
- 3 oz tequila
- 2 oz fresh lime juice
- 1 oz Orange Liquer (like Cointreau)
- 2 tbsp honey
- Salt for the rims
Pour some salt in a small plate so that it is evenly spread out
Squeeze your limes for the lime juice
Using one of the left-over lime halves, rub the rim of a glass. This will leave behind something for the salt to stick to
rotate the rim of the glass in the salt so it sticks
Mix all ingredients together with a small spoon (the acid of limes will dissolve the honey)
I hope you like it!
