Smoky Heat with a Citrus Kick: Spicy Chili Salt Margarita
Rated 5.0 stars by 1 users
2 ounces of tequila
1 ounce of lime juice, freshly squeezed
1 ounce of orange liqueur (such as Cointreau or Triple Sec)
1 tablespoon of "Mariachi Smoked Chili Salt"
Lime wedges, for garnish and rimming the glass
Start off by preparing your glass. Take a lime wedge and run it around the rim of the glass. This not only adds an extra layer of flavor but also helps the chili salt stick to the rim.
Now, take your glass and dip it in the "Mariachi Smoked Chili Salt" spread on a small plate, ensuring an even coating around the rim. Set aside your now beautifully rimmed glass.
In a cocktail shaker, combine the tequila, freshly squeezed lime juice, and orange liqueur. The citrus from the lime and orange liqueur complements the smoky heat of the chili salt, creating a refreshing and well-balanced flavor profile.
Fill the shaker with ice and give it a good shake. You want the ingredients to mix well and the mixture to be nicely chilled.
Now, strain the margarita into your prepared glass. The key here is to make sure the liquid fills the glass while avoiding the chili-salt-rimmed edge, keeping it intact for that perfect first sip.
For the finishing touch, garnish the margarita with a lime wedge. Now, all that's left is to sit back and enjoy! As you take your first sip, you'll be hit with the citrus burst of the margarita, followed by the smoky heat from the "Mariachi Smoked Chili Salt".
