Today we’re celebrating International Margarita day!
Celebrated every year on the 22nd of February, the day honours the Margarita, one of our favourite cocktails and one of the worlds favourite drinks!
Although tequila is produced in Mexico, it’s a fine spirit that’s enjoyed all over the world for it’s smooth finish and notes of sweet, earthy agave. While the Margarita typically contains tequila (we like to use a Reposado tequila aged in oak barrels), orange liqueur (triple sec) and freshly squeezed lime juice, there are several variations to satisfy any taste.
Try this Mango Margarita for a fabulous fruity twist on the classic serve:
- A handful of fresh ripe mango
- 50ml Reposado tequila
- 25ml triple sec
- 25ml freshly squeezed lime juice
- A lime wedge and rock salt to rim the glass
- A lime wedge to garnish
Start by preparing your glass – run a lime wedge around the rim of the glass and twist the wet rim in a plate of sea salt.
Add the mango into the bottom of a cocktail tin, muddle until soft. Add in the tequila, triple sec and lime juice plus plenty of fresh ice. Shake well until chilled and diluted. Double strain into a rocks glass filled with ice and garnish with a lime wedge.
