Margarita salt, for rim

Lime wedge, for rim and garnish


2 ounces tequila

1 1/2 ounces fresh lime juice

1 ounce simple syrup, see Cook's Note

1/2 ounce green chile juice, see Cook's Note


  1. Put some salt on a flat dish. Moisten the rim of the margarita glass with the lime wedge and dip it in to the salt. 
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the tequila, lime juice, simple syrup and green chile juice to the shaker and shake vigorously for 3 seconds. Pour into the salted glass and garnish with the lime wedge. 

Cook’s Note

To make the simple syrup, heat 1 part water and 1 part granulated sugar in a small saucepan until the sugar dissolves. Cool before using. To prepare the green chile juice, put 1 New Mexico green chile in a blender with 1 ounce of water and blend thoroughly. Strain the puree through a fine mesh strainer and transfer to a squeeze bottle. If New Mexico green chiles are not available, serrano chiles may be substituted.
