Charred Citrus Margaritas

Serves 4

Cook Time: 3 - 5 minutes

There's no better way to celebrate an event than with tasty beverages. These margaritas are perfect for Cinco de Mayo or any festive occasion! The flavors are grand, but to bump it up just a bit more, try using big flake smoked sea salt (Maldon) with the tiniest pinch of smoked paprika mixed in to salt the rim of the glass. ¡QUE RICO!

Ingredients

  • 6 limes, cut in half
  • 3 lemons, cut in half

Simple Syrup

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup water

Each Margarita

  • 1/4 cup smoked sea salt
  • 1 pinch smoked paprika
  • 3 oz. tequila blanco
  • 1 oz. charred citrus juice
  • 1 oz. Cointreau
  • 1 oz. simple syrup
  • Ice
  • Lime wheels, for garnish

Directions

Set up grill for direct heat using medium-high heat. Brush and oil grates. Place citrus cut-side down on the grill and cook until dark grill marks form, about 2 to 4 minutes. Remove fruit and when it is cool enough to handle, juice them with your citrus juicer of choice; you should have about 1 cup. Place in air-tight container and chill in refrigerator. Juice will keep for several days.

NOTE: When grilling fruit of any kind, just be sure that the grates are brushed clean and oiled. There is no need to oil the fruit or especially to add sugar to it. Sugar will just burn on the grill and we are looking for the natural sugars to caramelize; burnt sugar is not a desirable taste.

Combine sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil for 1 minute. Cool to room temperature.

Mix smoked sea salt and smoked paprika and spread on a small plate. Run a lime around the rim of a glass and then dip in the salt.

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the tequila, lime juice, Cointreau, and simple syrup. Shake vigorously until frost forms on shaker. Add ice to glasses and strain margarita into glass. Garnish with a lime wheel and enjoy!
