I’m sure you’ve had it marked on your calendar ever since you bought that planner for half-off at Barnes & Noble, but in case you’ve somehow forgot, National Margarita Day is this Friday, February 22nd. I’ve come across a ton of margarita recipes in honor of the Lushworthy holiday and Tequila Don Julio’s “Metate Margarita” is one drink recipe that truly caught my eye. This particular margarita calls for your standard agave syrup and fresh lime juice, but the unique addition to the “Metate Margarita” is the Tequila Don Julio Blanco that’s infused with peanuts, sesame seeds, Chipotle, Ancho Chile, and Valrhona Cacao Nibs. The directions are pretty intense so you may want to have a backup margarita ready if you plan on whipping this bad boy up for National Margarita Day.
1 1/2 ounce Metate* infused Tequila Don Julio Blanco
1/2 ounce Fresh Lime Juice
1/2 ounce Agave Syrup
Combine infused Tequila Don Julio Blanco, fresh lime juice and agave syrup into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well. Strain into a rocks glass (salted rim optional).
