1 1/2 oz Santo Tequila Reposado
1 oz lime juice
1 oz ginger syrup
For the ginger syrup:
2/3 cup freshly peeled and sliced ginger
¾ cup sugar
¾ cup water
HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN
To make the margarita:
Pour the ingredients into a shaker with ice. Shake well and pour all contents into a glass.
To make the ginger syrup:
Combine the ingredients in a small saucepan and cook, stirring occasionally, on medium-low heat until simmering. Allow to cook for an additional 25 minutes on low heat. Strain the ginger out of the syrup and chill in a heat-proof container until cold.
The syrup recipe will produce enough to make several margaritas. Only fresh ginger will work for this recipe.
We do not recommend dried, frozen, or preserved ginger.
