Queen of the Underworld

Adapted from Shrubs by Michael Dietsch

Inspired by the myth of Persephone, daughter of Zeus and the harvest goddess Demeter. Hades, king of the underworld, abducted Persephone to become his bride. This drink is essentially a margarita variation, with shrub swapping in for the triple sec.
