Azoteas Verdes Margarita

The American palate is so sophisticated these days. It goes hand-in-hand with the foodie movement – people want to know that what they’re ingesting is fresh, seasonal and all-natural. The norm is becoming more exotic in terms of the fresh herbs and unusual spices used in cocktails – everyone is trying to raise the bar.

 

Ingredients

  • 2 parts Milagro Reposado Tequila
  • 1 part fresh lime juice
  • .75 parts Agave Nectar
  • 2 strips green bell pepper
  • 1 D'Avignon Radish
  • 1/5 kale leaf

Directions

Combine the pepper, radish and kale leaf in the mixing glass of a Boston shaker and muddle. Add remaining ingredients and ice and shake vigorously. Strain over fresh ice into a rocks glass and garnish with a kale leaf and lime wheel.

Margarita Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Margarita Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
