Pineapple ∙ Lime ∙ Lemon ∙ Li Hing Mui seed
makes 8-10 cocktails
This Maui-Rita features sweet, salty, and tart Li Hing Mui, a preserved plum seed brought to Hawaii from China over 100 years ago. Translated to mean “traveling plum”, li hing mui worked its way into local culture. As a kid, we would walk down to the Crack Seed store and choose the best-looking seeds from rows of clear glass jars.
The sweet, salty, and sour flavors pair perfectly with classic Margarita flavors. Making this local cocktail a favorite in restaurants throughout the islands thanks to the “traveling plum”.
Add Tequila + Chill 1-3 days = Enjoy
