Rhubarb-Citrus Margarita
For the margarita, Blau likes to use kumquats but since those are not always available, we found that mandarin oranges make a good substitute.

Ingredients
  1. 2 kumquats cut in half (or a small wedge of clementine with skin), plus more for garnish
  2. 1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) tequila, preferably silver
  3. 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) Cointreau, or other orange-flavored liqueur
  4. 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) rhubarb syrup (follow recipe above without juniper berries)
  5. 1ounce (2 tablespoons) fresh lime juice
  6. Coarse salt for rim, if desired
Instructions
  1. Muddle kumquats (or clementine wedge) in a shaker then add tequila, Cointreau, rhubarb syrup and lime juice with ice. Shake vigorously and strain over ice into a salt-rimmed glass garnished with additional kumquat or clementine wedge. Makes 1 cocktail. (Tip: to salt the rim of a glass, dip it in a saucer of water and then dip damp edge in a saucer of coarse salt, pressing down gently but firmly.)
