Pear Margaritas with a Tajin Rim

June 9, 2017

Summer just became a bit sweeter and bit spicier. Pear puree mixed with tequila create a pear-fect twist on this cocktail classic. The pinch of jalapeño is just enough spice to be intriguing and create a mouth-watering burn. A touch of tajin on a lime rim, and voila… summer is here!

Yield: 2 margaritas

Ingredients:

1 ripe pear, Anjou or other
4 oz. tequila
2 oz. lime juice
½ oz. Grand Marnier or other orange liqueur
Pinch of jalapeño pepper, optional
Pinch of salt
Tajin

Directions:

Mix pear, lime juice, Grand Marnier, pepper (if desired), and salt in a blender. Pour 2 oz tequila into each glass filled with ice. Finish filling each glass with pear mixture and stir. Garnish with a fresh lime wedge and Tajin rim. This margarita is also delicious blended rather than served over ice.
