How do you spice up a margarita?

Answered by Jason Smith

There are numerous ways to spice up a margarita and take it to the next level of flavor and excitement. Here are some unique and delicious ideas to make your margaritas even more enticing:

1. Sorbet: Adding a scoop of sorbet to your margarita can elevate the texture and flavor profile. The Frozen Concoction Maker® is perfect for creating a refreshing frozen margarita with perfectly shaved ice.

2. Cucumber: Incorporating cucumber into your margaritas adds a refreshing and crisp element. To enhance the cucumber flavor, muddle a few slices before adding the other ingredients.

3. Spicy: If you enjoy a bit of heat, adding some spice to your margarita can be a game-changer. You can use jalapeño slices, chili powder, or even a dash of hot sauce to give your drink a kick. Adjust the amount of spice according to your preference.

4. Mezcal: Swap out the traditional tequila for mezcal, a smoky and complex Mexican spirit. Mezcal adds depth and a unique flavor profile to your margarita. It’s a great option for those looking for something different.

5. Moonshine: For a truly adventurous twist, consider using moonshine instead of tequila. Moonshine adds a unique and potent flavor that can bring a whole new dimension to your margarita experience. Just be mindful of its high alcohol content!

6. Key Lime: Instead of using regular lime juice, try using key lime juice for a more tangy and aromatic margarita. Key limes have a distinct flavor that can elevate the traditional margarita to a whole new level.

7. Pomegranate: Adding pomegranate juice or syrup to your margarita can provide a burst of fruity sweetness and a vibrant red color. It’s a delightful variation that adds a touch of sophistication.

8. Watermelon: Blend fresh watermelon chunks and strain the juice to use as the base for your margarita. Watermelon adds a refreshing and juicy element that pairs perfectly with the classic margarita ingredients.

These are just a few ideas to spice up your margarita. Feel free to experiment with different combinations and ingredients to create your own signature margarita that transports you to paradise. Cheers!
