Nimbu Pani Margarita w/ Jal Jeera Masala Salt Rim
Time: 5 minutes
Jal Jeera Masala (you can find some at your local Indian grocery store! Spicewalla Chaat Masala would also work in a pinch!)
2 oz tequila
2 oz Cointreau
2 oz lime juice
1/4 tsp Spicewalla Roasted Cumin Powder
1/4 tsp Spicewalla Fennel Seed (or fennel powder)
Simple syrup to taste
- Add coarse salt and Jal Jeera Masala to a shallow bowl or plate. Run a wedge of lime along the rim of a glass and dip the rim into the coarse salt until well covered.
- If using fennel seeds, grind them into a powder.
- Add tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, Roasted Cumin Powder, Fennel Powder, simple syrup, and ice to a cocktail shaker. Shake for 15 seconds and strain into the jal jeera rimmed glass. Garnish the glass with a lime wedge and enjoy!
