Mix Up Your Summer With These Fun Margarita Recipies!
Now that summer is in full swing, it’s time to grab your favorite Sweet Kickin’ Salsa, a bag of chips, your tastiest tequila, a cocktail glass and treat yourself to some well-deserved margaritas. While the history of the margarita is a bit obscure, no one can debate the fact that margaritas are one of the most versatile and delicious drinks there are.
Whether you like your margarita on the rocks, blended, with or without salt, there is a margarita recipe for everyone and there’s no wrong way to make one. Margaritas come in every flavor imaginable and to prove that we want to share five margarita recipes with you. We can guarantee you will find at least one to cool off and satisfy your tequila cravings this summer.
For those of you who prefer your margaritas to be blended, the Tequila Sunrise Margarita is the one for you. Everything you love about margaritas is included in this recipe and it’s quite simple to make.
For this recipe, all you need is tequila, Triple Sec, grenadine, orange juice, and sour mix. Next, blend up your orange margarita, slowly pour it over a bed of grenadine, and you’re done. The sweetness of the margarita mix contrasts quite nicely with the tequila-citrus mix in a wonderfully effortless way.
Coconut is often an ingredient that gets overlooked when it comes to margaritas, but on a hot summer day, there aren’t many other flavors that rival its tropical taste. Now, you can absolutely toss this in a blender if you’d like, but we think this recipe is much easier to make and enjoy if you throw it in a cocktail shaker instead. All you will need for a coco margarita is tequila, sour mix, pineapple and lime juices, and cream of coconut. That’s it. This relatively basic drink pours out of the cocktail shaker quite frothy and is nothing short of fun.
Pineapple Chili Margarita
The name for this recipe speaks for itself; it’s time to get a little spicy! The pineapple chili margarita requires tequila, Cointreau, lime and pineapple juices, and Tabasco. The best part about this recipe is that you can make it as spicy as you’d like or don’t like. Tabasco is added by the dash so if you’d like to turn up the heat a bit, you’re welcome to add more, but the pineapple does an outstanding job of balancing out the Tabasco so you can never go wrong when making this margarita. This would be a show-stopping drink to break out at your summer cookout!
It wouldn’t be summer without bringing something Jamaica-related into the mix. For this hibiscus-flavored recipe, you will need tequila, agua de Jamaica, simple syrup, and lime juice. For the Jamaica margarita, we recommend using your favorite tequila. The flower water is really the only flavoring used in this recipe which is why your tequila selection is so important. Whether you’re bored of your standard margarita or just want to switch things up, this margarita is a great excuse to splurge on your favorite tequila for an exceptional drink.
Last, but certainly not least, if you’re in the mood for something decadent, yet delicious, the chocolate margarita is a great choice. For this creamy and delightful recipe, you will need tequila, chocolate liqueur, cream, orange juices, and chocolate bitters. The focus of this drink is the chocolate, of course, but the splash of citrus juice is what really accents the drink and brings it a transformative hint of new flavor that is actually quite impressive.
