Persimmon Margarita Recipe
- 1 1/2 oz. tequila
- 1 oz. persimmon syrup
- 1/2 oz. triple sec
- 1/4 oz. fresh lime juice
- Fresh lime wedge and Jacobsen Sea Salt's matcha salt for rim (optional).
- 1 pint chopped persimmon
- 2 cups water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- Combine all ingredients and shake with ice. Strain into an ice-filled glass and garnish.
- Cut the persimmons in quarters, removing the stems. In a small pot, bring the persimmons to a boil with the water and sugar, lower the heat and let simmer until the syrup has reduced by half. Let cool to room temperature and strain into a clean glass jar. Keep refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
Side Note: Homemade persimmon syrup adds an earthy-sweet nuance to the classic Margarita.
