Thirsty Thursday

It's been upper 80s and low 90s in Austin and nothing looks more refreshing that an ice cold margarita.  As the weather gets hotter, I keep thinking what an awesome idea it'd be to have a Margarita Bar.  A small group of friends, chips and salsa in the middle of your table and a bar with a variety of margaritas to cool you down. Sounds amazing, right? Well lets get started with the cocktails then...


Mango Margarita
Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 cups ice
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • 2 cups mango nectar
  • Tequila (optional)
  • Lime wedges, for garnish

Directions

Spread the salt out onto a small dish. Dip the rims of 4 margarita glasses in water and then dip them into the salt.
Into a blender, add the ice, lime juice, orange juice, mango nectar, and 4 shots of tequila, if desired. Blend until smooth. Pour into the prepared glasses and garnish with a lime wedge.


Prickly Pear Margarita

Ingredients

  • 3 ounces tequila blanco
  • 1/2-ounce Cointreau
  • 1 1/2 ounces lime juice
  • 2 ounces prickly pear syrup
  • Kosher salt and turbinado sugar, for garnishing the glass
  • Kumquats and lime peels, for garnish

Directions

Combine the tequila, Cointreau, lime juice and pear syrup in a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously to incorporate. Wet the rim of a margarita glass and dip into salt and sugar mixture. Pour margarita into glass over ice. Garnish with a kumquat and a curled piece of lime peel.
Pineapple

Ingredients

  • 2 cups lime juice, about 20 limes
  • 2 cups white tequila
  • 2 cups Triple Sec
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh pineapple juice
  • Fresh pineapple slices, for garnish

Directions

Combine the lime juice, tequila, Triple Sec, and pineapple juice. Fill a cocktail shaker 1/2-way with ice and fill 2/3 full with the margarita mixture. Shake for 30 seconds and pour into glasses. Decorate with fresh pineapple slices and serve ice cold.

Now just add friends and enjoy! Ole!

Mmm, Kelli, chips and guac. You're talkin' my language! This post makes me pine for south Florida, arguably the best place in the US to get your Mexican-Cuban cuisine on.

... and now, I can really go for a margarita. Traditional, on the rocks with salt on the rim. Yum!
I seriously LOVE Prickly Pear Margaritas. Mmm soooo soooo good.

Eeeks! This was kind of the plan for today. Thursdays are a catch- up homework day for me. I think I may add a glass of wine and take my research assignment outside!
