a little bit about the recipe
Salt and tequila pair hand in hand and the minerals in French Gray Salt create such a great flavor combination in this classic margarita.
PREP | 5 M
1 SERVING | 5 oz
In a glass or shaker full of ice add the tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, and agave. Shake or mix together until cold.

Take your drinking glass and run some agave around the edge, then carefully press the edge into the gray salt.

Fill the garnished glass with ice, and pour your margarita in to enjoy!
If you don’t have agave, garnish with honey!

If you prefer to have a drink unsweetened, you can use the cut side of a lime to run on the rim to help the salt stick.
ingredients in recipe
coarse grain
This artisanal dried coarse grain French grey salt is rich in minerals and is tinged grey from the clay bottom of the tidal pools from which it is harvested. Briny and flavorful, but softer on the palate than commercial salts.
