This is quite a yummy take on margaritas and my own special concoction! Since pomelos are pretty fibrous and not very juicy, this margarita is best serve frozen. Remember the left over mint syrup we had from canning the grapefruit in minty syrup? We are going to use it here (see, I told you not to throw it out!).
First, you will segment your pomelo. Now that you have your pomelo ready to go, you will need the following: Tequila, cointreau, fresh lime, minty syruip, pomelo segments, ice, bar shaker, shot measure, and a blender.
Ignore everything in the background...I have a small kitchen, ok!
In your bar shaker, throw in a small handful of pomelo segments, add about a 1/2 oz cointreau (or triple sec), 1/4 oz minty syrup (or to taste), juice from half a lime, and 2oz of tequila (oh, who are we kidding? Make that 3!). Place the top on your bar shaker and give it a good shake. Next, throw a few ice cubes in there, pour into your blender and whir it up into an adult slushy. Rim your gass with kosher salt, pour in your margarita, and enjoy!
haha, you can see some lemon zest drying in the background - oh, and my very sad basil plant...
