Do You Fancy a Margarita?

May 5, 2012

Happy Cinco De Mayo Loves!  This is honestly one of my favorite holidays because I am a true lover of any and all Mexican food (could eat it everyday) and I am a serious tequila lover.  I swear give me some good tequila and I am a happy lady.   I was reading my new Bon Appetit last weekend and I came across an article tittled “How to Mix the Ultimate Margarita”.  Umm, yeah I devoured the article and  then I promptly made both Ritas, nevermind it was only 3:00 in the afternoon but it had me wanting one.   Now they are household favorites.  I know you will all love the Blackberry Rita but don’t snub the Jalapeno one.  I know it sounds weird but trust me it is really good in a crazy way.  If you like a little spice and heat you will love this drink!  Try them both and let me know what you think!

BLACKBERRY MARGARITA

Ingredients (Makes one drink)

1/4 cup Tequila

1 lime juiced

3 Blackberries

2 Tbs Agave Nectar

Muddle the blackberries with agave syrup in a cocktail shaker until berries are lightly crushed. Add in Tequila and lime juice. Shake. Pour into glass- salted rim optional

JALAPENO MARGARITA

 

 

Ingredients (Makes one drink)

1/4 cup Tequila

1 lime juiced

2 thin rounds Jalapeno (for a less spicy drink remove seeds)

2 Tbs Agave Nectar

Muddle the Jalapenos with agave syrup in a cocktail shaker until the peppers are lightly crushed. Add in Tequila and lime juice. Shake. Pour into glass- salted rim optional
