Good Morning Margarita lovers and welcome to NATIONAL MARGARITA DAY 2018! .
Let’s start the days proceedings with the Classics!
Classic Margarita: The Classic Margarita is traditionally created with Blanco Tequila, Orange Liqueur, Lime or Lemon Juice and Simple Syrup. You can create your Perfect Margarita by adjusting the amount or Orange Liqueur and simple syrup. I like mine very sour so I used 45mls @casamigos blanco, 15mls @cointreau_officiel and 45mls freshly squeezed lime juice.
Cadillac Margarita: To create a perfect Cadillac you will need to use a well aged Reposado Tequila and Grand Marnier. To create mine, I used 45mls @sesiontequilaReposado Tequila, 30mls @grandmarnierusa and 25mls freshly squeezed lime juice.
Tommy’s Margarita: Tommy’s Margaritas are simple to create. It is made without the Orange Liqueur that you would find in a Classic Margarita. I used
60mls @casamigos reposado Tequila,
30mls freshly squeezed lime juice & 15mls Agave Syrup.
Frozen Margarita: I used a cheaper tequila @espolontequila blanco, triple sec and @josecuervo.au margarita Mix … All you have to do is place all ingredients in a high speed blender with lots of ice and whiz until combined! .
Time for some Mezcal and a few twists…Please enjoy my Strawberry and Dragonfruit Margarita.
25mls Vida Mezcal
15mls Strawberry Liqueur
25mls freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tablespoonfuls of Dragon Fruit pulp
Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously until combined. Serve over ice and garnish with freshly frozen dragon fruit balls.
Here is a margarita with a few of my favourite things.
45mls @patron Silver infused with Jalapeño
15mls Blue Curaçao @dekuypercocktails
45mls freshly squeezed lime juice
1 egg white (room temperature)
Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously until the ice as melted. Double strain into your favourite cocktail glass that has been rimmed with ground Black Lava Salt. Wait for the foam to settle and place a fresh jalapeño slice on top.
