Minted Plum Margarita

Makes 1 Drink

Want to take your margaritas in a new direction? This recipe results in a minty margarita with a faintly fruity plum finish.


INGREDIENTS
  • 1 1/2 oz Tequila (we used Milagro Silver)
  • 2 tsp Spiced Plum Jam (could substitute other plum jam)
  • 1/2 oz Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
  • 4 Fresh Mint Leaves
  • Fresh Mint Sprig for Garnish
  • Salt

DIRECTIONS

1

Wet the rim of a rocks glass with lime. Rim it with salt.
2

Slap the mint leaves between your palms to release more of their essential oils.
3

Combine the mint leaves, tequila, plum jam and lime juice in a shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously.
4

Double-strain into the rocks glass over fresh ice. Garnish with the mint sprig. Serve.
