Persimmon Margarita Recipe

Each year when the cooler temps start to roll in, I find myself yearning for food and drink that really embody the season – a sort of affirmation that fall is officially here. And the Persimmon Margarita, yet another inspired sip from Annie Campbell’s specialty cocktail program, does just that. Featuring tequila, persimmon and lime juices, and a thyme simple syrup, it conjures up feelings of all things autumnal – and delicious. XXJKE
