Well, not really missed it but I’ve heard from enough folks to know they sort of expected a margarita post from me yesterday. Oops! I had to make a choice and thought an Oscar Cocktail needed to happen instead for The Friday Cocktail. Besides, we really need to start a movement to change this day. Margaritas seem to me to be the quintessential summer cocktail. February 22? Whoever decided that? I mean really, who? Before I start that movement to get this day allocated to a summer month, I thought the least I could do was share the Margaritas I love that I’ve already posted so if you’re inclined to make it a three day holiday you’ve got some other options!
This is my all time favorite; actually this is the margarita that changed margaritas for me. I hated them before I made my own and it’s as simple as one word. Reposado. No two. Reposado and Orange Liqueur (no triple sec here!). Use good ingredients and fresh fruit and the difference will be remarkable. Don’t you DARE buy that premix stuff ever again…you will not be sorry!
I made an exception this time last year with no regrets. This is not just a pretty face.
It’s definitely unique and no one was more surprised than myself how good it was!
Meant to be a popsicle; I learned the hard way. Too much booze really is not a good thing!
Not for the faint of heart…this definitely has a kick from Jalapeno Tequila.
A margarita and sparkling wine? Absolutely! Though I’m making my Grenadine differently now and this would be pink!
No, you read that right. This is not a watermelon margarita but watermelon infused with the flavors of margarita. Now this is summer only but save it for a nice day with a fabulous watermelon. So delish!
OK, obviously not a margarita but you have to serve them with something right? Forget all the extravagant concoctions you might have seen; make your guacamole simple and let the avocado shine. It’s truly the best!
I hope I’ve made reparations with these and now I want one, stat! It’s all your fault!
