I created this cocktail to serve at my sister-in-law’s rehearsal dinner, based on her request.
I don’t care much for cilantro myself, but those who do seemed to enjoy the drink.
Beaumont’s Best Margarita
- 1 1/2 oz. Blanco Tequila
- 1 oz. Cilantro-Orange Liqueur*
- 1 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
- 1/2 oz. Pineapple Juice
- Dash of Agave Nectar (if desired)
- Shake ingredients with ice, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Can also be served on the rocks. Garnish with a lime wheel and a sprig of cilantro.
- In a clean bottle, combine a good quality triple sec with several sprigs of fresh cilantro. (The exact amount will depend on how much liqueur you're infusing, and how strong you want to the cilantro flavor to be.) Let the cilantro macerate for at least 2 to 3 days, shaking the bottle periodically. Once ready, it should last in the refrigerator for several weeks, if not longer.
