My Favorite New Drink



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


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!
