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.
- 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
Wet the rim of a rocks glass with lime. Rim it with salt.
Slap the mint leaves between your palms to release more of their essential oils.
Combine the mint leaves, tequila, plum jam and lime juice in a shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously.
Double-strain into the rocks glass over fresh ice. Garnish with the mint sprig. Serve.
