Since our nasturtiums are in full bloom, I took the opportunity to put together another Garden to Glass recipe over the weekend. Easy, delicious and a colorful presentation!
To make your own, run a slice of lime around your glass and dip in coarse sea salt, fill with ice and set aside. Fill cocktail shaker with ice. Pour 1 ounce nasturtium simple syrup (see below), 2 ounces silver tequila, 1 1/2 ounces fresh lime juice and 1 ounce fresh orange juice into a cocktail shaker and shake for 30 seconds or more. Strain into your salt-rimmed glass and garnish with fresh nasturtium flowers. Makes 2 drinks. (Planting nasturtiums are also a great way to keep aphids out of your garden!)
Nasturtium Simple Syrup: Bring 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar to a boil in saucepan. Constantly stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove saucepan from heat, add 10-12 pre-washed nasturtium blossoms and let steep for 20 minutes. Strain liquid when cool and discard wilted flowers. Simple Syrup can be stored in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
