Flor de Jalisco
Joaquín Simó developed this Margarita riff while at Death & Co, turning to orange marmalade in place of the typical orange liqueur or triple sec. We adore drinks with jam and preserves; they bring such an unmatchable richness and body. Swapping lemon for the traditional lime is a genius choice, giving the Flor de Jalisco a light, floral sweetness.
- 2 parts Blanco tequila or Aged tequila
- ¾ part Lemon juice
- ¼ part Agave nectar
- 1 tsp Marmalade
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. You can double-strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove the marmalade bits, but we like to keep them in for added texture and visual appeal.
