A beautiful tequila margarita that is perfectly complimented by lemon and honey. A warming drink, no excuse is needed to enjoy this concoction.
The margarita- one of the greatest classics in any cocktail cookbook. Thought to have originated in Mexico during the ’40s, it is arguably the most civilised format of drinking tequila.
Known for its great versatility- margaritas can be served shaken with ice (on the rocks), blended with ice (frozen margarita), or without ice (straight up). If you’re a fan of tequila drinks then you’re probably all too familiar with the classic margarita – classic tequila, lime and triple sec cocktail.
Today, I’m introducing a delicious and innovative recipe with a honey, lemon tequila margarita. The honey is used as a sweetener while the lemon juice is a fresh alternative to lime juice. The resulting concoction is a fresh yet sweet hit of tequila and I think we can all agree tequila and lime are the perfect OTP to compliment any Saturday night out.
- 2 Ounces Tequila
- 3/4 Ounce Lemon Juice
- 3/4 Ounce Honey
- 3/4 Ounce Grand Marnier
- Crushed Ice
- Lemon wheel for garnish
- Combine all of the ingredients (except for the ice) in a cocktail shaker.
- Stir until honey fully dissolves into the drink.
- Add a cup of crushed ice and shake vigorously.
- Pour straight into an old-fashioned glass with the ice from the shaker.
- Garnish with a lemon wheel.
note: Be sure to dissolve the honey into the drink before adding ice. This is to prevent the honey from clumping in the cocktail shaker.
