Cocktail of the week by Spirits Hunters: Ginger Margarita/Nutmeg

A Margarita cocktail that we will twist this time with ginger and a touch of nutmeg.

For this cocktail you will have to prepare ginger syrup. Then you will prepare a classic margarita. The whole will be mixed then garnished with lemon and nutmeg.



For the syrup: 150ml

-170g of sugar

-340ml of water

-One ginger, peeled and cut into small pieces

For the Margarita:


Grated fresh nutmeg

56ml of tequila o de reposado

Ice cubes

1 lime and its juice

1 lime to garnish


Preparation: To prepare the ginger syrup, add water and sugar to a pan over low heat until the sugar dissolves. Add the ginger and leave to soak for 30 minutes.

Once the syrup is ready, pour it into a blender until you obtain a puree. Filter the mix with a strainer to extract the pulp. Store the syrup in a jar or bottle.

To prepare the Margarita, mix sugar with the grated nutmeg. Add tequila, lemon juice, 150ml of the ginger syrup and ice cubes in a shaker. Shake vigorously.

Rub the rim of your glass with a wedge of lime, and dip the rim of the glass in the sugar/nutmeg mixture.

Finally, add ice cubes to your glass and pour the shaker mixture into the glass. Grate a little more nutmeg on the top of the cocktail and garnish with a wedge of lime.




Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
