Makes 2 glasses
- 4 tsp. of Apple and Meadowsweet infusion
- 2 oz of El Jimador tequila
- 3 clementines (1 to decorate)
- 1-2 tsp. of honey syrup
- Ice cubes*
*Substitute tequila for dark rum if you prefer!
- 1 clementine, sliced
- 1 carambola, sliced
- 1 tbsp. coarse sea salt
- 1/2 tsp. apple & medowsweet infusion
1. Prepare the Apple and Meadowsweet Infusion in a separate container.
Heat 250 ml of water between 90 and 95 degrees °C, then pour it into the container. Add the honey, as well as 4 tbs. of mixture into the infuser and let sit for 10 minutes.
2. While the herbal tea is infusing, get the toppings ready
Fruits: cut into slices one clementine and one star fruit. Make a cut on each slice.
Salt: Place the salt in a small plate. Collect about 1/2 tsp. of the "powdery" part of the Apple & Queen mixture (surplus spices and concentrated grass powder). Add it to the salt and mix well.
Assembly: Take a slice of clementine (less aesthetic ends) and rub it on the rim of the glasses. Induce generously and evenly so that the salt sticks well. Turn the glass in the salt, so that the wet edge is in contact with the salt and adheres to the glass.
3. Mix it all up!
Slice in half the remaining clementines, squeeze the juice out of it and pour it into the infusion's container. Pour the tequila and mix well. Fill glasses halfway with ice cubes. Pour the mixture slowly into the glasses garnished with the salt mixture.
Decorate the glasses with the slices of clementines and star fruit. And there you go!
Aie, aie, aie!
