What’s in a Classic Margarita Cocktail?
This spring cocktail is our special spin on the classic margarita.
The classic margarita features a mixture of Silver tequila, fresh lime juice, and triple sec (orange liqueur).
It typically served in a margarita glass dressed with a rim of salt and a wheel of lime.
Ingredients You’ll Need to Make an Easter Margarita
Silver tequila: Choose a good quality tequila for best results (and a better day after!)
Grapefruit juice: Fresh is always best, but bottled will do too. This will add tanginess, freshness and lots of color.
Tangerine juice: You’ll probably need to make it at home since it’s more difficult to find bottled. Or you can sub it for orange juice.
Triple sec: Cointreau is our personal favorite and one of the most high quality Triple secs.
Orange blossom water: The secret ingredient. Use sparingly because a couple of dashes goes a long way and can overpower the other flavors.
Sugar: The classic margarita has as a salt brim. However, sugar is best to balance this drink’s citrus flavors.
How to Make an Easter Margarita
1 — In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add the grapefruit juice, tangerine juice, triple sec, tequila and orange blossom water. Shake well until chilled.
2 — To prep your margarita glass, pass a tangerine wedge along glass rim. Dip the rim in a plate of sugar. Add plenty of ice or a big ice cube cube to your sugar-rimmed glass.
3 — Strain and serve your mix into a glass. Garnish with a grapefruit wedge.
Recipe Notes and Tips
How to turn the Easter Margarita into a frozen cocktail:
Simply blend all the ingredients with plenty of ice in a food processor and serve immediately.
How to sweeten the drink:
If your tangerines are not super sweet, you can balance the sourness of the grapefruit by adding 1/2 teaspoon of simple syrup at a time.
Add to taste, depending on your desired sweetness level.
To make the Easter Margarita for a crowd:
Prepare the cocktail mix beforehand in a pitcher, and then, store it in the fridge.
Serve it over ice.
If you don’t want the drink to water down:
Create grapefruit and tangerine ice cubes beforehand to use instead of regular ice.
