Today Monday, February 22, 2016 is National Margarita Day AND it’s George Washington’s birthday.
To celebrate we designed a margarita that would pay homage to the fabled cherry tree chopping first president of America.
The lovely color of the drink comes from cherry infused tequila! To make this tasty margarita you’ll need to start the ball rolling at least one day in advance to give the tequila and cherries time to party, mix, and mingle.
To make the tequila all you need is a can of water packed cherries and your favorite tequila. Drain the water out of the cherries. Put the cherries in a large mason jar or a bowl. Cover with tequila and let sit covered for at least 24 hours. Boom. Cherry Tequila.
Now here’s how to make this tart tipple:
3 ounces cherry infused tequila
2 ounces fresh squeezed lime juice
1 ounce Cointreau
Combine all in a shaker with ice. Shake it. Pour into salt rimmed glass over ice. Enjoy.
