Highball, Martini, Tequila,

The epic “Midnight Margarita” scene in Practical Magic sticks out as a best in class for us – and their recipe for this classic sounds pretty delish…
Eye of Newt
Toe of Frog
Wing of Bat
Tongue of Dog
Adder’s fork and Blind Worm’s sting
Barbados lime is just the thing
Fragias salt, like a sailor’s stubble
Flip the switch and let the cauldron bubble!! ‍♀️
We’ve seen this movie over and over again since it debuted in 1998 and while some of their ingredients were a bit difficult to source , we stuck by the lead character’s wise words and subsituted accordingly: “Always throw spilt salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for luck, and fall in love whenever you can.” Our recipe, with a salt rimmed glass, rosemary (which IS planted by our garden gate), and lavender fits the bill.
How To: Combine ingredients in a blender with ice. Blend and pour into a salt rimmed glass. Float BPF tea and violet liqueur, for a touch of midnight.
