I’ve made the ginger syrup in as small a quantity as makes sense, but this recipe can very easily be increased. There’s no need to add more lemongrass – even if you double or triple this recipe though, it will hold its own.

I hope you enjoy this ginger lime margaritarecipe as much as I do! As always, give me a shout on Instagram or Facebook if you make it - just tag me @shinyhappybright

Makes 2 servings | Prep Time: 3 minutes | Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

4 tablespoons cane sugar

4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice

4 tablespoons minced ginger

1 stalk lemongrass, diced

3 ounces Anejo tequila

1 ounce Cointreau

ice

lime wedges to garnish

Instructions

Combine the sugar, lime juice, ginger, and lemongrass in a small pot over medium high heat and bring to a boil, while stirring constantly. Remove from heat once boiled.

In a blender or food processor, pulse the sugar ginger mixture till pureed. 

Strain through a sieve and save the liquid. 

Rim two rock glasses with salt and fill with crushed ice. 

Combine the sugar ginger syrup, tequila, and cointreau in a cocktail shaker with at least two cups of ice and shake vigorously. 

Pour the drink between the two glasses and garnish with a lime wedge. 

This cocktail is adapted from Jean-Georges gorgeous ginger margarita. I first tried this drink 6 years ago and it remains my favorite cocktail of all time.
