Salt and Pepper Margarita

No Cinco De Mayo is complete without the delicate (or not-so-delicate) margarita.


One of my obsessions is the endless uses of salt and pepper - you can literally use them for everything! So naturally, I wanted to create a margarita that reflected the yin and yang of the spice world.

Ingredients
  • 3 Ounces Thai Chili-infused tequila
  • 2 Ounces Nellie and Joes Key Lime juice
  • 1/2 Ounce sugar
  • A fresh lime wheel
  • Maldon's Smoked Sea Salt flakes
Directions

Combine tequila, lime juice, sugar and ice in a shaker. Shake vigorously.

Coat the rim of the glass with the Cruzs Key Lime Juice. Dredge the rim in Maldons Smoked

Sea Salt Flakes.

Garnish with a wheel of fresh lime. Enjoy.

For Thai Chili Infused Tequila:

Place 3 red chilies (halved and seeded) in 750 ml bottle of tequila. Allow chilies to infuse for 1 to 2 days.
