1very ripe peach
1/2ozlime juice,about 1/2 of a lime
3oztequila,preferably 100% agave
1/2ozorange liqueur,such as Grand Marnier
1/2ozsimple syrup,or agave syrup
Roughly chop the peach and then put in the blender and puree until smooth. Strain the peach juice through a mesh strainer to remove the bits of skin.
In a cocktail shaker, combine all the ingredients with ice and shake well.
Rim two glasses with coarse salt. Pour some salt onto a plate. Then rub the rim of the glasses with some lime and dip them into the salt. If you're not fond of salt inside the rim of your glass, rub the outside of the rim with lime and then roll your glass in the salt.
Fill each glass halfway with ice and divide the margarita between them.
To make a simple syrup combine equal amounts of sugar and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and let boil for a few minutes after the sugar dissolves to make sure all the crystals are dissolved. Let cool and use in drinks. You can store simple syrup in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
Peach juice will brown on exposure to air, so it's best to make it fresh for each drink.
