Gather the Ingredients.
Start off your lemongrass margarita cocktail by gathering the ingredients you need.
- 50ml LemonTop Gin
- 25ml Tequila
- 50ml lime juice
- 2 tbsp chopped ginger
- 2 tbsp chopped lemongrass
- 15ml sugar syrup nectar
- Sweet Basil
To give the drink its salty rim, get some coarse salt and one or two limes for zest to sprinkle on top!
Put everything into the shaker.
Once you’re all set up and ready to go, it’s time to make the lemongrass margarita. Simply put the ginger, lemongrass basil and sugar syrup into your cocktail shaker and muddle them together. Half-fill the shaker with ice, add the LemonTop Gin and Tequila, shaking the drink until it is chilled.
Rim Your Glasses with Salt and Sugar.
For an extra touch of flavour and texture, you can rim the glasses with both salt and sugar. Start by rubbing a wedge of lime onto the top or side part of the glass, then dip each one in a plate with a mix of equal parts granulated sugar and kosher salt. Don’t forget to set aside some of these seasonings for garnish! You should now have two delicious lemongrass margarita cocktails layered with sweet-sour flavours – cheers!
Strain, Garnish, and Serve!
Take your favourite cocktail glass and add crushed ice. Pour and strain the cocktail from the shaker through a fine mesh strainer on top of the ice. Pour the strained margaritas into the pre-rimmed glasses, add in some ice cubes for extra chilliness and garnish with lime wedges and salt-sugar mix. Stir before sipping away and enjoy your lemongrass margarita cocktail!
