In the heat of the San Diego summer (is that a thing?) I’ve been making healthier margaritas with fresh citrus. Since I’m not composting (yet) I always have extra rinds from lemons/oranges/limes. This is one of my favorite uses for the rinds, because it doesn’t saturate your home with perfumes, thus less allergen-provoking.
Simply boil water in a medium to small-sized sauce pan, once boiling, add citrus rinds, 1-2 cinnamon sticks, and sprinkle with ground cinnamon. Let boil for 10-15 minutes, and then reduce to simmer. You can leave it on for as long as you’d like, just make sure you continue adding water as it evaporates. Your home will smell amazing 🙂 AND you’ll be having margaritas.
