Description

Inspired by the Nutcracker ballet, our Sugar Plum Margarita recipe uses an easy-to-make spiced plum syrup. A twist on the Christmas classic tale.


Ingredients

  • Tequila – 3 Oz
  • Tangerine Juice – 2 Oz
  • Fruity and Spice Simple Syrup – 1 Oz
  • Lemon – 1 juiced
  • Cherry liqueur splash
  • Ice
  • Plum Slices Dipped in Cocktail Sugar for garnish
  • Dell Cove Spice Co.’s Pastel Purple cocktail rim sugar
  • 5 Dried Figs
  • 10 Dried Plums
  • 5 Dried Apricots
  • Dried Cherries – 1/4 Cup
  • Water – 2 Cups
  • Sugar – 2 Cups
  • Lemon – 1 juiced
  • 2 Caramom Pods
  • Ground Ginger – 2 tsp

Instructions

Rim the chilled glasses with cocktail rim sugar. Set aside. Add liquids to ice-filled cocktail shaker. Cover and shake very well. Strain into glasses, garnish and serve.

How to make the fruity and spice syrup:

Place water and sugar into pan over medium heat. Stir well until sugar dissolves, and then add remaining ingredients. Stir steadily until water comes to a boil. Then reduce heat to low and stir, and let simmer for another 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat and allow mixture to steep, uncovered, for at least one 1 hour. Taste mixture – if flavors aren’t strong enough, stir well and allow mixture to continue steeping. When the syrup has reached your preferred strength, strain the mixture through your chinois, and store the syrup in a bowl or glass bottle. Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.
