    HONEY THYME MARGARITA

    Yield: makes 1, multiply as needed

    INGREDIENTS

    • 1 1/2 oz silver tequila
    • 3/4 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
    • 3/4 oz fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
    • 1/2 oz orange liqueur, like Cointreu
    • 1/2 oz honey thyme syrup
    • coarse sea salt, to rim serving glass

    Honey Thyme Syrup:

    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/2 cup liquid honey*
    • 6 3-inch sprigs fresh thyme

    INSTRUCTIONS

    1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add tequila, lime juice, grapefruit juice, orange liqueur, and syrup. Shake well until well chilled. Strain into a salt-rimmed serving glass.

    Honey Thyme Syrup:

    1. Add water, honey, and thyme to a heavy-bottomed saucepot. Bring to a simmer until the honey has dissolved. Remove from heat and let thyme steep for 30 minutes. Strain out thyme. Transfer syrup to an airtight container and keep at room temperature.

    RECIPE NOTES

    • I suggest using a mild, light-flavored honey. This will allow the thyme to shine through. If you use a dark-hued, strong-flavored honey, the herb will be lost. Use AlfalfaClover, or Orange Blossom honey for the best results.
