Along with my strawberry cravings all week, I’ve also been on a spicy cocktail kick, so here’s another one for you! My fiancé isn’t a big fan of cucumbers, so I was shocked when he tried (I sort of forced him to try) one of these margaritas and he actually liked it! The cucumber and ginger give the drink a much needed refreshing and crisp twist. What I love most about these margaritas is that you’re in complete control of the level of spiciness so no matter your tolerance level, you can make a batch custom to your taste!
Last week I started the process of infusing my own tequila and I couldn’t be happier with the result. The infusing process ended up being much quicker than I originally anticipated and the flavor was perfect! I’m not much a tequila person anymore, but I could honestly sip this straight! I created three margaritas with the tasty infusion and I honestly cannot pick a favorite! Try them out for yourself and decide on your favorite: pineapple, pomegranate, or the spicy Miss Marguerite! And if you haven’t started your infused tequila yet, you still have time! The process only took two days to reach the flavor I wanted, so head over to my Cilantro Jalapeño Infused Tequila post and get the instructions so yours is ready to go on Cinco de Mayo!
One of our favorite late night spots in Portland is Santeria. They have phenomenal burritos and equally amazing drinks! I love spicy cocktails so I always order their Spicy Margarita which comes with a kick of habanero! To celebrate Cinco de Mayo and to pay tribute to Santeria, I thought I would give the habanero margarita a shot!
