Ginger Margarita

This cocktail is a standout at Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Spice Market restaurant in NYC, where bartenders mix tequila and other classic margarita ingredients with potent ginger-lime syrup. Vongerichten also rims the glass with ground ginger and salt instead of the usual plain salt.
