A thrilling, bone chilling margarita that will perfectly complement your spooky decorations!
Ghouls and Witches rejoice! This festive drink is sure to awaken the spirit of All Hallow’s Eve in everyone:
Here’s what ya need for this spooky orange & black margarita:
3 ounces tequila of your choice
2 ounces fresh tangerine juice
1 ounce fresh lime juice
1 ounce simple syrup
1/2 teaspoon Cointreau
Black salt for rimming your glass
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake it, not like a Polaroid picture but like you want some nice foam on top of your margarita (add a little egg white if you want bolder foam like in the picture below). Pour into black salt rimmed glass with a few more ice cubes.
Fall has been such a tease this year, giving us cool mornings and leaving us with sticky warm afternoons that lead to evenings that are perfect for cocktail hour al fresco.
One chilly morning we made mulled apple cider with the hope that if we just consumed the flavors of fall Fall would decide to stay all day. While the warm cider was perfect for the morning, we froze the rest into large ice cubes in anticipation for the warmth of the day.
Later that afternoon, the Mulled Cider Old Fashioned was created:
Here’s what you need for this fabulous fall flavored beverage:
3 to 10 drops Angostura bitters
orange peel, about an inch or two long
1 large ice cube of mulled cider (or 2 to 3 small cubes)
2 ounces bourbon of your choice
1 cinnamon stick for stirring
1 anise star for kicks and giggles
Run the orange peel around the edge of the glass then throw it into the bottom. Douse it with bitters and muddle to your heart’s content. Add your mulled cider ice cube and the bourbon of your choice. Serve with a cinnamon stick for stirring and an anise star for added beauty and class.
