Directions:1. For the Honey-Habanero Simple Syrup: Place the honey and water in a medium saucepan and bring it to a boil, and simmer until the honey is completely dissolved. Turn off the heat and add in the freshly habanero peppers (halved & stems removed). Cover and let it steep for 3 hours. Strain the syrup through a mesh sieve into a bowl, discarding the solids. Pour in the syrup into a container and let it cool completely in the refrigerator until chilled.
2. For the Honey-Habanero Margaritas: Zest and juice the 3 limes into a cocktail shaker, and then add in the tequila, triple sec, honey-habanero simple syrup, and some crushed ice. Shake until thoroughly mixed and cold. Rim a glass with salt, and then fill it with more ice. Pour the shaken margarita mixture over the ice. Garnish with a slice of lime. This only makes one drink.
