Margaritas are one of the most popular drinks around these days. While I like a really good classic margarita, I am not always crazy about many of the cheap premade margaritas at a lot of places these days. Better than a classic margarita for me though are the other variations on them. Pomegranate margaritas are one of my current favorites. I apparently lean towards pink and red drinks because this week’s cocktail recipe is for a Spicy Raspberry Margarita! Since Spring is here I thought this sounded like a great recipe for having the fruit plus a kick of spicy since we are still all a bit chilly from the polar vortex! Thanks to el Jimador for this recipe. I hope you enjoy this week’s selection!
Spicy Raspberry Margarita
- 1 ½ oz. el Jimador Reposado Tequila
- ½ oz. Chambord
- 1 oz. Sprite
- 2 oz. Sour mix
- 3 dashes of Tabasco
In a shaker filled with ice, add ingredients and shake to mix. Pour into margarita glass rimmed with spicy salt. Garnish with a lime wedge.
