The Margarita Mum – In the Media

I am so Excited to be collaborating with http://www.avalango.com.

This is the amazing story on Instagram:

We are so happy to present our next collaboration!
For the following 7 days, we will introduce you to @the_margarita_mum and her awesome creations 🙂

All pictures and recipes are created by her, check out the first one below!

“My name is Rhonda and I am not your ‘stereotypical’ mixologist or bartender. I am a busy full-time working mother with 2 young daughters, a husband, and 3 step-sons.
I started The Margarita Mum just over a year ago, quite simply because I love margaritas and wanted to share this. I created The Margarita Mum Facebook and Instagram to showcase my Margarita journey. It wasn’t long before I began creating my own Margarita recipes, and eventually Tequila- and Mezcal-based cocktails. Things evolved quickly.
The journey has just been incredible so far, and I am blown away every day by the way the cocktail community has embraced ‘The Margarita Mum’. I really want to help bring Tequila and Mezcal ‘back into fashion’, particularly in Australia.

The Margarita Mum brings me so much joy and happiness, and I believe the possibilities are endless. Things are only just beginning, but I am already inspired to take this as far as I can. What’s the saying about doing something you love and never working a day in your life?

Well, this is something I want to work hard at, and I love it.”

Day 5 

My cousin is visiting us in Melbourne tonight…..many years ago he had a bad university experience with tequila so he is skeptical about trying one of my margaritas… and he likes beer. So, I have mixed him up a Beer Margarita with a local Melbourne Bayside craft beer.

Recipe:
60mls reposado tequila infused with smoked Chilli honey*
120mls @wolfofthewillows Indian Saison Ale**
60mls freshly squeezed lime juice
Chilli Salt Rim from @gewurzhaus

Result: Bayside Brilliance.

* I infused 1/3 cup of @granluchito Smoked Chilli Honey in 200mls reposado tequila for 4 days
** This Ale has Mango, lychee and mild spice flavours and I purchased it at @danmurphys
