TGIF: 5 Unique Margarita Cocktails
The next time you’re enjoying drinks with friends, impress them with these unique margarita cocktails which are sure to be a hit.
Rather than serving the same old salty margarita, we have searched for some of the most interesting cocktails which not only look good, but taste delicious.
Basil Jalapeno Margarita
Give your favourite margarita recipe a pop of taste with a pinch of jalapeno pepper! Not only is it ready in under 5 minutes, but it’s perfect for those who love to try new and exciting cocktails. The jalapeno is balanced out with basil and mint leaves which give the cocktail a fresh flavour.
Perhaps you’re enjoying a drink with a friend who loves fruity cocktails as opposed to something thick and salty. The grapefruit brings a sweet, fruity element to the cocktail, and is ideal with silver tequila for a smooth taste.
Blood Orange Margarita
Enjoy the sweet raspberry/citrus flavour of a blood orange, combined with a salty margarita. Use just 1/2 cup of blood orange juice, and 1/4 cup of lime juice for a tangy flavour that is out of this world.
If you ever get your hands on a fresh pomegranate, then you definitely have to try this one for yourself. Create a syrup with lime and pomegranate juice, then add a pinch of sugar before letting it dissolve. This is the secret weapon to a truly sweet/sour beverage!
Frozen Coconut Pineapple Margarita
It has coconut, pineapple and some silver tequila, this one is bound to be a crowd pleaser! Part-slurpee, part-cocktail, blend the coconut and pineapple pieces with some ice, and serve on a glass rimmed with salt.
