Enjoy this refreshing beverage as a party-of-one or as the star of your next gathering. Experience a striking explosion of citrus and tropical pineapple on your first sip. Let the gentle heat of Thai chilies and cooling herbs entice you to drink the last drop.
1 (750 ml) bottle of local white wine
1 ½ cup (354.88ml) anejo tequila
1 cup (236.58ml) orange juice
½ cup (118.29ml) lime juice
7.5 ounces (212.62g) - ¼ of a whole Pineapple
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon (11.5g) Lemon thyme
2 ¾ teaspoon (8g) Cilantro
½ cup (118.29ml) Saucier Willy’s Some Like It Hot Simple Syrup (Use to taste for sweetness and spice)
Butcher’s twine or string
Use regular thyme instead of lemon thyme.
Add a splash of ginger beer to your glass after adding the salt, stir and sip.
Use an infused simple syrup or an alcohol tincture (up to 1 cup) in the recipe mixture, or infused salt for the garnish.
Thinly slice the pineapple, grapefruit, lemon, and lime.
Tie the cilantro and lemon thyme with twine or string like a bouquet.
In a large pitcher, mix the wine, tequila, orange and lime juice and simple syrup. Add fruit and herb bouquet. Refrigerate and let steep for 2 hours – overnight. Remove the herb bouquet and citrus fruits.
Serve on the rocks with a pinch of salt added and stirred in, as a cordial when more simple syrup is added for extra sweetness, or as a traditional margarita and rim your glass with Himalayan salt.
Garnish with a sprig of cilantro, lemon thyme and a citrus slice. Enjoy!
