Margarita Iconoclasta

IMG_0136.jpg

I don’t drink booze often but when I do I like it to be nice. Your definition of “nice” may vary.

Ingredients:

  • 1 jigger (1.5 oz) of good tequila (I use Herradura Reposado)
  • 1 jigger of lime juice
  • 1 jigger of agave nectar
  • 1 pony (0.75 oz) of triple sec
  • 2-3 dashes of habanero sauce (optional)

Place into cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake until the ice gets somewhat crushed. Pour into a glass. Salt rim optional.

In a cocktail glass:

  • Ice
  • 1.5 ounces rum
  • 1.5 ounces Maraschino liqueur (Luxardo)
  • 1.5 ounces lime juice
  • 1-2 Maraschino cherries (pref. also Luxardo; Marasca cherries steeped in their own liqueur are way better than Bing in sodium benzoate)
  • A splash of grenadine
  • Top off with ginger beer
