10 Margarita Recipes You Need To Try For Margarita Monday
We already showed you how to make the ultimate classic margarita using a few quality ingredients. But sometimes you want a little excitement in your life, so why not experiment with some fancy variation on the classic by adding some new flavors? If you’re going to doctor up your drink, we recommend starting with this base and going to town.
Here are some delectable twists on a margarita that you should definitely try this Monday:
1. Prickly Pear Margarita
A gorgeous and simple but unique spin on the classic drink.
2. Ultimate Spicy Margarita
Because sometimes you just need muddled red peppers to make everything taste better.
3. Smoking Blackberry Sage Margarita
You don’t need to add the dry ice effect, but come on, you really shouldn’t turn down an excuse to make your drink smoke.
4. Spicy Grapefruit Margarita
This tasty libation gets its kick from tangy grapefruit and spicy jalapenos. We think these two ingredients belong in every margarita.
5. Strawberry Sriracha Margarita
If you need something sweet, spicy and a little wacky, grab a bottle of everyone’s favorite rooster sauce and go to town. You can thank us later.
6. Cucumber-Cilantro Margarita
Cucumber and cilantro add a bright, refreshing twist. If you’re one of those people who hate cilantro, try subbing it for chili powder or another herb like basil.
7. Roasted Blueberry Basil Margarita
This will still taste amazing with raw blueberries, but roasting them brings out a really amazing flavor that you just have to try.
8. Smoky Watermelon-Jalapeno Margarita
The smoked salt does wonderful things to the watermelon and the tequila flavors. If you want to go overboard, swap out the ice in the glass for frozen watermelon cubes.
9. Avocado Margarita
Does this sound wacky? Sure. Is it delicious? Absolutely. Adding pureed avocado to your margarita will make it irresistibly creamy. Give it a try!
And for dessert…
10. Chocolate Margaritas
Chocolate makes everything better, especially margaritas. With cream, two kinds of chocolate and cinnamon, it’s a stretch to call this one a margarita, but we don’t hear anyone complaining.
