El Tesoro™ Margarita

For the spice rim:

  • Pinch of crushed kosher salt
  • Pinch of ancho chili flakes
  • Lime zest
     

Glass: Rocks
Garnish: Lime wheel

Mix salt, ancho chili and lime zest to create a spice mix. Use a lime wedge to lightly moisten half of the glass rim. Gently roll one side of the glass in the mixture.

Mix all the ingredients in a Boston shaker filled with ice, then shake vigorously. Double strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice (preferably crushed ice). Garnish with a lime wheel.

Seasonal alternative: Muddle your favorite seasonal fruits or peppers to enhance the margarita.
Syrup alternative: Hibiscus simple syrup.
