Tropical margarita cocktail

These creative margarita recipes from Let's Get Tropical put a delicious twist on a refreshing classic. 

 

Classic Margarita

Before you reinvent the wheel, you have to enjoy the original!

For a refreshing margarita the classic way, pour 60ml white tequlia, 20ml Cointreau, and 20ml lime juice into a shaker. Fill the shaker with ice, shake hard, then strain into a chilled margarita glass. Garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy. 

Orchidea Margarita

The sweet agave syrup in this reinvention recipe balances the citrus flavors. Add all the ingredients to a brandy balloon or wide rocks glass filled with crushed ice. Swizzle, and top with more crushed ice. Garnish with an orchid and a mint sprig. 

Tequila on the Beach

Enjoy this summery, fruity variation on the classic margarita. Blend all the ingredients with a scoop of crushed ice. Pour into a chilled margarita glass and garnish with a lime wedge.

Pink Merry Margarita 

Here, grenadine and cherries turn a classic pink. Muddle the pineapple ring in the bottom of a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients, fill the shaker with ice, and shake hard. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a small pineapple wedge.

Chocolate, tahini banana bread

I have been making a banana bread with chocolate and tahini on repeat for a while now, and every time I’ve eaten it over the last year or so, I couldn’t help thinking that the particular combination of intense chocolatiness, sweet, texture-softening banana and the rich earthiness of tahini would make the perfect warm pudding.
