This yuzu margarita recipe with lime fleur de sel is the perfect refreshing cocktail for a balmy summer evening.
Yuzu juice makes an intriguing alternative to lime bringing strong citrus flavour but also a heady, floral aroma. Yuzu juice is hard to come by and a little decadent, but it is complemented beautifully by lemon juice, which helps to make it go much further.
A lime fleur de sel salt rim also gives this cocktail a little more intrigue than your usual margarita. The salt has a Madagascan fleur de sel base, laced with lime zest which adds a refreshing, scented final touch.
Ingredients Serves: 6
- Dip the rim of the glasses into the egg white, then into the lime fleur de sel to coat.
- Pour the Tequila, Cointreau and yuzu juice, lemon juice and agave syrup into a cocktail shaker.
- Add a handful of ice cubes and shake for 20 seconds. 4. Strain into a margarita glass and serve.
