Ginger Peach Margarita

It’s no secret that I favor anything ginger, and for some reason I have been smitten with peaches lately too. Maybe it’s because they are so juicy sweet…. Either way I was about to start a batch of margaritas yesterday as a way to celebrate my Sunday and was craving the spicy taste of ginger. Then without much more thought, I knew I would pair it with peach. I rimmed the edges of the glasses with sugar and tajin for a sweet spicy booster. The margarita was so delicious that my fiance (who is not a ginger fan at all) drank a whole pitcher and said it was one of the best he’s ever had.  Enjoy!

Ingredients for Ginger Peach Margarita:

  • 1 – piece of fresh ginger (about the size of your hand) (peeled and chopped)
  • 4 – cups water
  • 3/4 – cup honey
  • 4 – peaches (pit removed and sliced)
  • 8 – cups ice
  • 1 – cup tequila
  • 2 – tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 4 – tablespoons sugar
  • 1 – tablespoon tajin

Directions:

  1. Peel and chop ginger.
  2. In a medium sauce pan over a medium – high flame add water and ginger, and allow to come to a boil. Let boil for 10 minutes, then remove from flame and add in half of the peaches to the hot water, and allow ginger pieces/peaches to steep in water for 1 hour.
  3. Add honey to ginger water. Mix to fully incorporate.
  4. Remove half of the ginger pieces.
  5. In a blender add ginger water, all peaches, ice and tequila. Blend until thick and smooth. This may have to be done in two batches. Add more ice for a thicker margarita, add less ice for a more slushy margarita.
  6. Add lime juice to a shallow rimmed plate and dip the edges of the glass rim into lime juice.
  7. Then on another plate add sugar and tajin and mix to combine.
  8. Dip the lime juiced rimmed glass into the sugar tajin mixture, then pour in your margarita! YUM!
  9. Enjoy!
