Last Week of Summer

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

The autumnal equinox is almost here! September 22 at 5:19 pm EDT, to be exact (US Naval Observatory).

Grab your friends and toast to these last few days of summer with margaritas… clean, refreshing agave margaritas! Beautiful, pure, 100% agave tequila is something to be sipped and savored, much like a fine scotch.

The secret to concocting the perfect margarita is: keep it simple! Use the juices of fresh fruits and pure, organic agave nectar. Not is only agave nectar that ethereal match to tequila that nature intended, it is a sweet that dissolves in cold water and is vegan friendly.

  1. 1 1/2 oz  100% Agave tequila
  2. 1/2 oz Pure Organic Light Agave
  3. juice of one small lime
  4. fresh squeeze of orange
  5. splash of spring water

Shake well and serve over ice.

To salt a rim, pour sea or kosher salt on a small plate. Moisten the rim of your glass with a fresh lime wedge. Roll the rim (or half) in the salt. To add some flare, add a little black pepper, cumin or cayenne to your salt.

Raise your glass and say “adios” to summer!

That’s a lot of margaritas!

But if you can hang on to some… delicious, raw, organic agave nectar sweetens hot teas and yummy oatmeals on brisk fall mornings.

Skybar Cocktails: Passion Fruit Margarita, Lemon Spritz

Monday, September 1st, 2008

Also known in Spanish as the chinola, the passion fruit is exquisite and more than bursting with tropical flavors unlike any of its more common relatives. This drink is served at The Shore Club in chic Miami Beach for $16, but, seeing as though normal people like you and me probably won’t be strolling in The Shore Club’s bar any time soon, we’ve got you covered. Here are two of their recipes you can make at home using Agave Nectar, and Sonoma Syrup’s famous Simple Syrup.

Passion Fruit Margarita
1 ½ ounces tequila (Partido Blanco preferred)
1 ounce spring water
juice of half a passion fruit (save the shell)
¾ ounce organic agave nectar

Mix ingredients into an ice-filled shaker. Shake; strain into a cocktail glass. Fill passion fruit shell with mescal and float on top.

Lemon Spritz
½ ounce simple syrup
¼ ounce of limoncello

Mix ingredients plus 3 ounces of champagne in an ice-filled mixing glass and stir. Strain into a flute. Float grenadine on top with bar spoon. Garnish with a lemon twist.
