My Favorite New Drink

My FAVORITE Drink!!

Went to SPICE MARKET, http://www.spicemarketnewyork.com,

located in the meat packing district.

Refreshing, light, sweet, tangy and goes down so EASILY!

Met with Jean Georges and he shared with me his recipe.

Ginger Lime Margarita

1 teaspoon ground ginger

2 teaspoons kosher salt

Ice

3 tablespoons organic tequila

1 1/2 tablespoons Ginger-Lime Syrup

1 tablespoon Cointreau

1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

1 lime wedge, for garnish

On a plate, mix the ground ginger and salt. Moisten the rim of a margarita glass with water and dip the rim in the ginger salt to coat. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the tequila, Ginger-Lime Syrup, Cointreau and lime juice and shake well. Strain the drink into the margarita glass, garnish with the lime wedge and serve.

Ginger Lime Syrup

4 ounces fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced (1 cup)

1 cup fresh lime juice

1 cup sugar

In a small saucepan, combine the ginger, lime juice and sugar and bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes. Let cool to warm, then puree in a blender. Pour the puree into a fine strainer and press on the ginger to extract as much syrup as possible.

 

Let me know what you think!
