Persimmon Margarita
Makes 1 to 4 Cocktails
  • 1 cup persimmon purée
  • 1 cup Reposado tequila
  • ½ cup fresh lime juice
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons simple syrup, to taste (see recipe below)
  • For the simple syrup
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup water
  1. Make the simple syrup:
  2. In a small saucepan, boil together sugar and water. Stir, until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool completely.
  3. Chill one or two, or more margarita glasses in the freezer :) Meanwhile, mix together the persimmon puree, tequila, lime juice and simple syrup in a blender or a cocktail shaker. If you feel fancy and use a shaker, fill it with ice, cover, and shake until chilled.
  4. Remove the glass(es) from the freezer. Salt the rim by cutting a lime wedge and moisten the rim. Press the rim into flaky sea salt that's lightly spreaded on a small plate.
  5. Pour into the glass(es) and if you like, add some ice.
