From Sage To Bell Peppers, Here Are Some Of The Most Interest Margarita Recipes On The Internet
Tequila is probably one of the most popular Mexican inventions and exports, likely only behind colored television. That’s right. A Mexican invented colored TV. While it is necessary to drink responsibly and not act a fool with liquor, it is nice to learn new ways to enjoy one of the most classic cocktails, the margarita. Most of these are just perfect for Instagram and, let’s face it, that’s what half of this world is about.
Key Ingredient: Patrón.
Just toss a shot of Patrón, an oz of Dolin, a dash of Rose Water, squeeze of Lime Juice and dash of agave syrup in a cocktail glass and stir. For the silver color, you add a spoonful of edible platinum and a pinch of xanthum gum and stir for a few seconds.
Creamy Margarita Popsicles
Get yourself a can of condensed milk, 12 dixie cups, limes y, claro que sí, tequila (1/4 c).
Pour the mixture in dixie cups and stick a popsicle through a slice of lime to top it off. The key is keep to the recipe or else the popsicle won’t freeze (so don’t think you can top more tequila off in this without ruining the popsicle).
Purple Pineapple Jalapeño Margaritas
This list will be full of margaritas, but they will all be purty pretty. Eso es hecho de jalepeño infused tequila, cointreau, lime juice, pineapple juice, and butterfly pea tea for the purple color.
Tequila Sunrise Popsicles
True story: every summer party mandates these super simple popsicles to instantly break the ice between new friends. There’s no secret to this one because the grenadine is denser than the pineapple and tequila so it sinks straight to the bottom.
Just blend 2 cups pineapple juice with a pound of fresh pineapple and 3/4 cup tequila. Fill up the popsicle wells 3/4 the way up and then top off with grenadine.
Blackberry Sage Tequila
You don’t need much for this one, and it’ll earn you brownie points with whoever you present it to. Just mush a few blackberries, 8 sage leaves and two sugar cubes together. Add a shot of tequila and top it off with grapefruit juice.
Strawberry Sriracha Margarita
Call this an Asian fusion recipe. Make your strawberry margarita as usual (with cointreau, ice, tequila, fresh strawberries and agave nectar) and just add a half teaspoon of Sriracha. This one is going to need a sugar rim to balance the spice. Serve up and marinate in the glory.
Red Chile Margarita
You don’t need Sriracha to spice up a margarita. Instead, scoop out the seeds of a habanero pepper and place just three slices in each glass of your favorite recipe. Shake and let it marinate for a few minutes before serving. Beware: it gets spicier the longer it sits. ????
You can spice up any plain old tequila and sparkling water combo with a splash of pomegranate juice and a vanilla flake salt rim. You read that right.
This recipe requires a stove, but it’s worth it. You’ll have boil a cup of sugar, a cup of water, and six rosemary sprigs until the sugar is dissolved. Just add the strained syrup, a shot of tequila, a splash of lemon juice and a splash of pear puree and club soda.
Get ready for this strange mix: kiwi and dill. Muddle up half a kiwi (you can keep the skins on), and two sprigs of dill. Toss in 1.5 parts tequila, 3/4 part lemon juice and 1/2 part simple syrup.
For the rim, go for a black salt and black pepper mix. Black salt is typically sourced from Hawaii where the salt is more sulfuric from volcanic activity and it has a distinct flavor. So far, this one wins for me. ????
Sour Apple Margarita
We are so much better than the apple syrups they give you at the bar. You can make this with or without a jalepeño simple syrup (which is basically just sugar, water and jalepeño simmered until the sugar disappears).
Shake the syrup, a cup of sour green apple juice, a few limes’ juice and 3/4 cup tequila with triple sec and ice and pour into your salted rim glasses.
The Salty Miami
Todos somos “The Salty Miami.” This is how Latinos colonize Britain by replacing the gin in a Pimm’s with tequila. DUHHHH.
Spicy Tamarindo y Tequila Cocktail
To be honest, I’ve only ever eaten tamarindo candy but I’ve never touched the raw fruit. Live life on the wild side by sauteeing and pureeing your own tamarind puree to add to your classic margarita.
This is what you make to win your mom back after leaving a single sock on her floor.
The Classy Tequila Shot ????
In fancy company? Just add a spritz of champagne to any shot of tequila you’re about to take and be sure to keep your pinky out.
OK, Michelle Obama level classiness demands dill infused tequila. Yup, just let some dill sprigs soak with your tequila for a bit before adding it to your orange liqueur, thai chili and hibiscus margarita. ????
Yes, that is a slice of bacon used for garnish. You’re going to want to roast some tomatoes in liquid smoke along with your favorite spices to get this thick cocktail. It’ll taste like a meal replacement.
The New Classic Margarita
This is your new baseline:
1½ oz Tequila
¾ oz Dry Curaçao
¾ oz Fresh Lime Juice
¼ oz Agave Nectar
The Marble Queen
This beauty is made of a shot of tequila, an ounce of Coco Lopez cream of coconut and a squeeze of lime juice. Oh, and you better spice that rim. It’s too much sweetness for one person.
Watermelon Jalapeño Margarita
Remember your base line? Line the rim of your glasses with lime and chile lime salt before topping off your classic margarita with watermelon juice and maybe a little jalapeño syrup.
Bodak Yellow Cocktail with Bell Pepper & Lime
You’ll actually need gloves for this one. The key is to scoop the jalepeños’ innards, seeds and all, into a bowl and pour about three shots of tequila and let it soak for 5-10 minutes. Then, juice some pineapple and yellow bell peppers, mix and sip, mix and sip.
The Magui Cactus
Fácil: Mix mint leaves, a shot of lime juice, Xtanbentum anise, simple syrup, tequila and cactus puree and enjoy.
Literally anything from Tequila, México. ????????
Because that’s where this wonderful liquid of the gods came from. Indigenous people would distill and ferment the syrup of the Blue Agave Plant back in the 1600’s. Today, more than 300 million blue agave plants are harvested from the region each year.
Como siempre, tequila is also best enjoyed straight with salt and lime. Happy National Tequila Day! ????????
