Royal Rita

Royal Rita

1

The Royal Rita is a vodka-based riff off on a margarita. Simple, refreshing, bright, and with the perfect amount of sour mouthfeel, minus the pucker. The vodka is made from 100% organic New England corn. From this flavor-forward sweet base, they added a pepper note with the Three Chile Syrup, and rounded it out with a sour mix made from fresh-squeezed lemons and limes (no additives, no concentrate, no preservatives). The chile syrup is—as us New Englanders put it—wicked tasty. For those of you who want to hold on to the warmish autumn days before fully embracing the cooler air that awaits, this is a sweet and sour vacation inspiration. And somehow this tastes like it might just have tequila in it. They’ve done a really nice job on this rita-riff.

3 ounces Split Rock Organic Vodka

1ounce Royal Rose Organic Sour Mix

1ounce Royal Rose Organic Three Chile Syrup

Wedge of Lime

Optional: edible local flowers

Add ice to a glass or shaker. Add vodka, sour mix, and three chile syrup. Shake, building your desired natural amount of foam.


Open shaker and pour into your favorite margarita glass. Garnish with a lime, a few edible flowers and enjoy immediately.
