Magnolia Fruit Margarita

Magnolia Fruit Margarita

Trigger warning: Oversized Garnish

I grabbed this amazing magnolia fruit from a friends tree.

I started by making a lower sugar magnolia fruit syrup:
1 magnolia fruit (sliced)
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup water
Put all ingredients into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer until liquid approximately halves. Allow to cool. Pour all ingredients into a jar and infuse the magnolia for a further 24 hours

For the Margarita:
60ml Reposado Tequila
15ml Passionfruit Liqueur
15ml Lower sugar magnolia fruit syrup
30ml Lime Juice
Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously until combined

Double strain into your favourite vintage cocktail glass

Garnish hard with a magnolia fruit and serve on silver platter
