Lime Shiso Margarita with Pink Pitaya Salt

So in the UK we have no green areas to which we can travel. The long promised thoughts of Holidays abroad, seeking new sights and cultures, smells and sounds, have once again been postponed.

So I am making it my goal to travel through nourishment. Recreating memories evoked through flavours and aromas to give a subconscious smile that creeps across your face as you remember those Halcyon days gone by.

So this Margarita brings with it Mexican Beats, rotund booty doing ‘the bubble’ and whining the night away (maybe that’s just me…)

Make it, enjoy it and feel that glow from within


150g Lime/ Lemon Sorbet

60ml Tequila

50ml Lime Juice

30ml Triple Sec

  1. Add all the ingredients aside from the Shiso, Pink Pitaya, lime wedges and salt to a blender and blitz until smooth.
