Margaritas are one of my favorite cocktails to tweak and tinker by adding new flavors and ingredients. It’s a simple formula and the tequila + citrus seems to have an endless combination of additional flavors that pair well in the drink. It’s like you’re looking at the same old margarita that you know and love, just from a unique camera angle. When I found star fruit in the grocery I didn’t know what I wanted to do with it exactly, but a margarita seemed like the simplest choice. It was a good move– the tanginess of the star fruit was really fresh, both literally and figuratively. 🙂
? Shooting Star Fruit Rosemary Margarita ?
- 2 oz tequila
- 1.5 oz lemon juice
- .5 star fruit (Save some for garnish too!)
- 4 sprigs rosemary (2 for garnish)
- .5 oz agave
- 1 handful ice
First muddle the rosemary with the tequila and strain away the herbs. Add the tequila, star fruit, lemon juice, agave, and ice and blend with a stick blender. Serve in a glass rimmed with agave and rosemary salt. (Fine chopped rosemary with coarse salt.) Garnish with a star fruit disc and rosemary trailing behind! ??
