I stand by my belief that Tequila is a Health Food... PREACH.

Raspberry Margarita with Habanero and Ginger Sea Salt

Raspberry Margarita

Ingredients

  • 1 English cucumber, sliced
  • 1 tsp Grated Ginger
  • 1/2 cup Raspberries
  • 1 small jalapeño, thinly sliced, plus more for garnish


  • 1/4 cup lightly packed mint

  • One 750-milliliter bottle silver tequila

  • 2 cups fresh lime juice

  • 1 cup light agave nectar

  • Ginger and Habanero flavored sea salt

Directions

  1. In a punch bowl, muddle the cucumber with the jalapeño, ginger, raspberries and mint. Add the tequila, lime juice, agave and stir well. Refrigerate until well chilled, about 1 hour. 

  2. Using a fine-mesh sieve, remove and discard the solids. 
  3. Rim a glass with a mixture of habanero and ginger flavored sea salt by dipping the glass in lime juice, letting it dry slightly then rolling it in the salt mixture.
  4. Fill the glass with ice and pour in the punch! Garnish with a mint leaf and lime wedge.
