8 Recipes to Up Your Cinco de Mayo Margarita Game
If you plan on ringing in your Cinco de Mayo this week, rest assured the margarita shall be the guest of honor at any proper gathering. To keep it fresh, we're throwing down some game-changing twists on the classic recipe. Tequila gets along with just about every fruit on the vine. From creamy avocado iterations to grilled mango concoctions, these inventive and irresistible blends have us swooning. Is it five o'clock yet?
This charred jalapeño and carrot margarita cocktail will require a bit of prep time, but the payoff is well worth it. It leads off with cilantro simple syrup, paired with pressed carrot juice and a homemade charred jalapeño tequila. The flavor is unique, and the ingredients come together beautifully. It's dressed to impress.
Blending avocados into a classic margarita recipe invites amazing texture and good fats. A spicy avocado coconut margarita marries subtle, creamy flavors. If you're averse to spice, simply cut the jalapeño from the recipe (or double down if you're feeling brave.)
Another delightfully inventive pairing that requires you to fire up the grill for some preproduction ingredients, this grilled mango habañero margarita can be made juiced or frozen. If you prefer to blend using frozen fruit, grill the mangos the day before, and allow them to freeze overnight.
