Recipe should read: Place 2 cups crushed ice in blender, pour 1/3 cup tequila and half of the rhubarb syrup (approximately 1 1/2 cups), and blend until smooth. Add water as necessary to blend to desired consistency. Garnish with lime wedge. Hope you enjoy!
If you normally like just plain margaritas on the rocks this might be too sweet for you (this is how I normally drink my margaritas) If you like sweet margaritas then you will probably love this recipe. If I do again I will use less sugar or use honey and not much. As it was I made a plain margarita and then added my mix just enough to give my plain margarita a little flavor.
If you own a Vitamix you can forget the cooking to make a syrup, Emulsify the pulp and all. The flavor is there. Put all ingredients in the Vitamix wet container, start on variable 1, increase rapidly to 10 then switch to high for approx 40 to 45 seconds until ice and mixture is creamy and slushy. add a dash of lime/lemon mix, wet the rim of the glass with tequila on finger and dip in salt. very good.
I don't understand how Jeannine gets 3 cups of liquid from this recipe using 1/2 cup water and the natural juices of only 4 cups of rhubarb? (Her clarifications are posted under the reviews and she's obviously recommending making 2 margs at a time with 1/2 ingredients each time). Sigh. Okay, aside from that, I used freshly squeezed lime juice instead of water to cook my rhubarb, and agave syrup instead of sugar. Delicious. (I shouldn't rate it 'cause I changed it, but it's better than giving it no stars.)
So good! It has a light, summer taste to it. The fresher the rhubarb the better, but you can use frozen rhubarb also.
Delicious!!!! I used honey instead of white sugar. Next time I'll cut back a little to give it a bit of a pucker. Thanks!!!
Tried this Margarita recipe and it was too sweet for my taste. I thought it would have been a bit more sour. It was just really sugary on the pallet. Going to try it with some lime juice and see how that tastes. If you like sweet drinks, you will love this. It is definetly a novel use for rhubarb.
