This fabulous recipe brings together the classic flavours of a Margarita in one glass: the smooth Mexican Agave in Mockingbird with Seville orange and bitter fruit from BaxBotanics Sea Buckthorn. Add to it, lime juice and honey and you have the zingy, satisfying party drink of Mexico!
50ml Bax Botanics Sea Buckthorn
25ml Mockingbird spirit
12.5ml fresh lime juice
15ml honey water
Sea salt crystals
To put a salt rim on your glass you need a saucer of crushed up salt crystals and a lime. I find it best to squeeze the lime juice into a separate glass and then use the remaining half lime to wipe round the edge of the Margarita glass. Then carefully dip the edge of the rim into the salt, turning the glass and repeating until you have a salt rim all round.
To mix the cocktail you will need a little honey water, this is just honey mixed with warm water, then cooled.
Add a few cubes of ice to your shaker or large jar, then add the rest of the ingredients and shake.
Strain into a cocktail glass and serve.
