Vanilla almond margarita

Ingredients

For the simple syrup

  • 2 vanilla beans
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar

For the margarita

  • 2 oz vanilla simple syrup
  • 2 oz freshly-squeezed lime juice
  • 2 2/3 oz tequila
  • 1 oz almond liqueur
  • 1/4 oz orange liqueur
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • Tiny drop almond extract (optional)

Instructions

    To make the vanilla simply syrup, combine 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Split two vanilla beans and scrape the caviar into the simple syrup mixture. Toss the scraped vanilla bean pods in as well. Bring the mixture to a low boil and then reduce heat and allow the syrup to simmer for about fifteen minutes. Set aside to cool completely. It's best if you let the mixture infuse for about an hour.

      To make the margarita:

      1. Combine simple syrup, lime juice, tequila, almond liqueur, orange liqueur, and extracts (if using) in a mason jar and shake to combine. Pour over ice into your margarita glasses of choice. Cheers!
