It's warming up around here and with the warmer weather comes the quintessential summer cocktail Margaritas! This recipe adds a twist with chili and papaya added to the mix.
- 1 and 1/2 ounces tequila
- 1/2 triple sec
- 1/2 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice
- 1/2 ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1/2 ounce papaya puree (strained of fibrous pieces)
- garnish: lime wedge, chili sugar/salt for the rim (recipe to follow)
Dip the rim of a DOF glass first in water and then in chili lime sugar/salt. Then, add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker full with ice. Shake until combined and cold and poor into a chilled DOF glass with crushed ice.
Chili Sugar/Salt: In a shallow dish combine 1 tsp course salt, 1 tsp granulated sugar, with a pinch of cayenne pepper and ancho chili powder. This recipe is enough to rim one glass but multiple to serve for a party ;)
