  • 4 oz. white tequila
  • 2 oz. triple sec
  • ice
  • Ginger simple syrup, to taste (recipe below)
  • Small watermelon wedges, for garnish (optional)
  • 3 T. coarse Himalayan sea salt, crushed
  • 1 T. red chili powder (optional)
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients except the simple syrup, salt, and chili powder into a blender. Blend on high until pulverized.
  2. Taste test with a spoon or small glass. Adjust ingredients to balance the flavors to your liking.
  3. Drizzle some ginger simple syrup into the blender and blend until you reach the desired sweetness.
  4. To rim the margarita glasses, grind coarse Himalayan salt in a coffee grinder or blender. Add the ground salt and chili pepper (if desired) to a shallow plate.
  5. Moisten the outside rim of each glass with a piece of fruit, like a lime wedge. Alternatively, you could dip the rim in a little of the ginger simple syrup.
  6. Turn the glass at a 45-degree angle and roll it around in the salt or salt mixture on the plate.
  7. Pour margaritas into prepared glasses and serve.
