I love a good margarita, especially during the summer. I always make my own simple syrup mainly because I don’t love all the added ingredients in pre-made, bottled margaritas. Also, I usually only want one drink and don’t want to tempt myself with an almost full bottle every time I open the fridge. So when I found this line of Organic Simple Syrups from Royal Rose I knew I had to try them out.
I was really intrigued by their Rose Simple Syrup and wanted to give it a try. So this weekend I tried out a margarita recipe and boy am I so glad I did. I mixed Royal Rose’s Rose Simple Syrup (say that three times fast), tequila and lime juice. That’s it. It was delicious with a slight floral hint for a little twist on a standard margarita. You can get the Rose Simple Syrup here: Rose Organic Simple Syrup 8 oz.
Right now they are offering 25% off their Blueberry flavor which I am dying to try out next! Use code BLUEBERRYSUMMER at checkout. You can get their Blueberry Simple Syrup here: 25% off Wild Maine Blueberry Organic Simple Syrup at Royal Rose with code BLUEBERRYSUMMER. (5/29 – 6/30)
Rose Margarita Recipe
2 oz tequila
2 oz Royal Rose Simple Syrup – Rose Flavor
2 to 3 Tablespoons Lime Juice (depends on how much lime you like- the more lime juice you add, the less you’ll taste the floral rose)
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake. Pour over ice in your favorite glass and enjoy! If you like a sweeter drink you can add a little more simple syrup or a little less lime juice. This was the perfect combination for me. For a little extra fun, muddle in some chopped strawberries or add dried rose petals if you can find them!
I loved this drink, my husband loved this drink and we will definitely be having more margaritas by the fire in the summer nights to come.
