Twisted Margarita

April 06, 2015

margaritaAuthor: Lily Mazzarella
I say with confidence that this is the best margarita you'll ever have. I have seen dozens of people delight in this exact recipe, made without sugar or bizarre powdered mixes. Credit goes to Joshua Margolis, who among his many other talents is a mixologist extraordinaire.

This cocktail is best made with a "Dash" masticating/extraction juicer, a complex and (to me) mysterious piece of machinery we purchased with a Groupon, on a day we were feeling particularly ambitious. This type of juicer REALLY squeezes the goodness out and preserves nutrient content. But of course, any juicer will do.

The secret to the depth of flavor in this margarita is the pith and peel, which lend a complex mix of sweet, bitter, and extra volatile oils (in citrus fruits, the pith/peel is where the majority of health-promoting flavonoids—and essential oils—reside). If you don't have a juicer, you can just squeeze the flesh old school style, with a handheld press, and slice and express the peel manually by twisting it into the juice. If you look closely, you’ll see droplets of essential oils fly out!

To make about 1 mason jar's worth:

2-3 whole limes, juiced, with peel
¼ orange, juiced with peel
1 tsp Farmacopia Orange Twist Bitters or, post-cleanse, ¼ cup Grand Marnier or Cointreau
1½ c 100% Agave Tequila (clear)
30 drops NuStevia liquid (Don’t be a stevia hater! This specific preparation works great for complex recipes)
Pinch smoked salt

Combine all ingredients and shake in a jar. (Best if you can let sit for a few hours in the fridge. The flavors marry to perfection)

Serve over ice with a salt rim and wedge of lime.

A perfect pairing to our Ocean-Friendly Carb-Free Fish Tacos!

NERVE BALM IS AWESOME!!

NERVE BALM IS THE BEST PRODUCT THAT I HAVE FOUND TO WORK ON MY NEUROPATHIC PAIN AND I AM GLAD MY CHIRPRACTOR INTRODUCED TO ME THIS PRODUCT. THANK YOU.

Wonderful class

Isabella is a great teacher and inspires each of us to look at nature and our surroundings to infuse our skin with healing from our own creations. Thank you!

These liquid capsules are genius! Such an easy way to make hawthorne a daily tonic because I can easily take it with my other capsule supplements. The gel caps are easy to swallow. I've even punctured them before out of curiosity and the liquid tastes great. My grandmother started taking them as well because she doesn't like tinctures or tea based herbal remedies.. good alternative

It really works!

I was skeptical at first when I bought this for my partner because he had tried other natural deodorants and they did not have the staying power. We were both pleasantly surprised by how effective this meow meow tweet cream is! It lasts forever too because you can scoop out exactly how much you need each time!

Nervous Gut

When I'm super stressed I tend to hold it in my gut. My digestion will go out of wack during intense times in my life and this bitters blend is critical support for me. After taking a few dropperfuls I can feel the tension slowly start to release in my gut. Helpful for stress induced constipation and indigestion or lack of appetite when my nerves get the better of me.
