Riquisimo Lavender Margaritas

Riquisimo (adj) Spanish word which translates to DELICIOUS in English. 

If you like a good margarita as much as me, you may be always looking for a little twist on one of your favorite beverages. This twist provides a more earthy margarita and is especially fun to serve for your girl friends!

Here are the ingredients for the super simple lavender simple syrup( I got this recipe from Perpetually Chic’s blog).

-2 cups trader joes organic sugar

-1 cup water

-4 tablespoons of lavender buds

this will make about 1 1/2 cup of simple syrup. It can stay fresh in the fridge for one month.

Next, you can use a lime to wetten the rim of your glasses and then rim them with your favorite salt.

Finally, mix with your favorite tequila ( I like 100% agave 1800 silver) , fresh limes, and sparkling lime juice👌🏻.

-1 tablespoon lavender simple syrup

-1-2 shots of tequila

-the juice for 2 limes

-1cup of sparkling like water

-5 large ice cubes

-shake and serve in rimmed glassware

-garnish with 1 like wheel and two lavender strands.

For a more simpler version you can mix with a pre- made margarita mix ( Golden Margarita from Costco is great).

Serve with tortilla chips and guacamole.

Cheers!
