What’s in a Classic Margarita Cocktail?
This spring cocktail is our special spin on the classic margarita.
Our other spins include our Skinny Jalapeño Margarita, Frozen Citrus Margarita, and flavored margaritas.
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.
