FLORIDA MARGARITA RECIPE

La Floridita MargaritaLa Floridita Margarita

FROM THE RAVENOUS PIG COOK BOOK

 Spring marks the tail end of Florida’s citrus season and that’s when our Ruby Red grapefruit is at its juiciest. Our take on Ernest Hemingway’s favorite daiquiri marries tequila with floral maraschino cherry liqueur. The fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice and grapefruit bitters tie it all together.

Makes 1

1 ounce sour mix
2 ounces Corralejo Blanco tequila
1 ounce Luxardo maraschino liqueur
1 ounce Ruby Red grapefruit juice
2 dashes Fee Brothers grapefruit bitters

Shake first 5 ingredients with ice and strain into a tall glass of ice rimmed with pink sea salt. Garnish with a wedge of lime and an amarena cherry.
