Some things are just so, so necessary.
Chapstick in the winter.
Bon Iver on rainy days.
Clementine Ginger Tequila Sunrises with chips and homemade guac on a Saturday afternoon.
What? That is superfluous?
I disagree. Especially when I am dying for summer and the only cure is citrus.
Guys, this drink is so delicious. And fun! I got to use a dusty mortar and pestle. Ingesting antiquated.
You, too, can ingest antiquated. Please join me in this. Ok.
Ever your superfluous,
Clementine Ginger Tequila Sunrise
4 ounces tequila
8 ounces fresh clementine juice
½-1” fresh ginger root, sliced up a bit
2 tablespoons grenadine
Coarse sea salt (I used a smoked coconut lime salt)
Juice clementines. Grind up the ginger root with a mortar and pestle, then immerse the ginger in the clementine juice for a while, maybe like 15 minutes while you whip up some fresh guac. Dip the rims of two glasses in the juice and then dip into the coarse salt. Strain out the bits of ginger from the clementine juice. Fill the glasses with ice and measure two ounces of tequila into each. Top up the glasses with the clementine juice, then pour a tablespoon of grenadine into the side of the glass so it sinks to the bottom. Don’t mix it in. Garnish with an additional slice of clementine.
1 ripe avocado, cubed
4 grape tomatoes, diced
1/8 of a red onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
Cumin, salt, pepper, granulated garlic, to taste
Mix up everything but the avocado in a small bowl and let the flavors meld for a bit in the fridge. When ready to serve, mash up the avocado in a medium bowl, then stir in the other ingredients. Serve with chips.
