Tamarind Margarita

Inspired by Food Diary of a City Girl, this easy-to-make recipe is perfect for the less experienced bartenders among us! This recipe makes enough drinks for six people, so feel free to adjust the recipe according to your party size.

To make this delightful drink, gather the following ingredients:

6 oz Tamarind Syrup

6 oz Tequila Reposado

3 oz Cointreau

6 cups of ice

6 limes

6 tbsp Tajín

To prepare the margaritas:

1. Grab a cutting board and knife and slice three limes in half. Slice the other limes in ¼ inch sections – these smaller slices will be used to garnish the cocktails.

2. Add 6 tbsp of Tajín to a flat plate. Tajín will be used to coat the rim or a small section of the cocktail glasses.

3. Moisten the rim of one cocktail glass using a lime.  Dip the moistened rim into the Tajín to coat.  Repeat the process for the remaining 5 glasses.

4. Using a citrus press juicer, juice 3 limes into a large pitcher.

5. Add Tamarind Syrup, Tequila Reposado, Cointreau, and ice to your pitcher. Stir contents until items are well mixed.

6. Pour equal amounts into your 6 prepared cocktail glasses.

Magical Color Changing Margarita

This exciting recipe by Fox and Briar is sure to wow your spring party guests!

While a bit more involved than your average margarita recipe, the payoff is worth it.

Begin making 6oz of butterfly pea-infused tequila. To do this, add 3 cups of silver tequila and 24 dried butterfly pea flowers to a jar with a well-fitting lid. Soak for 2-3 hours, then drain out the flowers and keep the remaining tequila in a sealed container. This will give you enough tequila to make 12 drinks.

To make the drinks:

1. Put salt on a flat plate. Run a lime around the rim of 12 glasses, and dip those glasses into the salt plate.

2. Add one ice cube and 2oz of the butterfly-infused tequila to each glass.

3. In a pitcher, combine 12 oz lime juice, 9 oz of triple sec, ice, and an optional 6 oz of simple syrup. Stir until combined and chilled.

4. Slowly pour the mixture into each glass, and watch as drinks magically turn from blue to purple.

Rosé Margaritas

Danilicious knows that every successful bachelorette party and bridal or baby shower has rosé. This mashup of two beloved drinks makes for a perfect brunch celebration beverage.

To make enough for 6 drinks, you will need:

12 oz of Rosé wine

6 oz tequila about 4 tablespoons

6 oz fresh lime juice about 1/4 cup

3 oz elderflower liquor about 2 tablespoons

3-6 teaspoons agave dependent on sweetness level

3/4 cup margarita salt, optional

3/4 cup freeze-dried strawberries crushed into a fine powder, optional

To make these flirty and fun drinks:

1. Mix your freeze-dried strawberries and margarita salt in a wide-brimmed, shallow bowl.

2. Wet all six glass rims with a lime wedge. Dip each glass into the salt mixture to rim the glass. 3. Place ice in your pitcher. Add all of the ingredients and stir vigorously.

4. Pour the margaritas between the six prepared glasses.

5. Garnish with a lime wedge and toast!
