Italian Margarita

on April 16, 2010

One of my all time favorite drinks is the margarita. But when I discovered this recipe I was sold on a whole new version of the classic margarita. The only problem is that when I first made this drink it called for  Coconut Tequila. I had just bought a bottle of Margaritaville Coconut Tequila on a clearance shelf and decided to find out what to make with it. The only problem with this is that there was a reason it was on the clearance shelf. It was being discontinued and of course now that I fell in love with this drink I couldn’t find the tequila anymore!! Soooo I have improvised and came up with a recipe just as good.

I will give both versions in case by some chance you happen to come across the coconut tequila. Each version makes 2 drinks.


VERSION #1

INGREDIENTS:

3 oz. coconut tequila

1 oz. amaretto liqueur

8 oz. margarita mix (with our without alcohol)

DIRECTIONS:
Place all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled 1/3 with ice. Shake and strain into martini or margarita glasses! Garnish with a maraschino cherry if you like!

Italian Margaritas

VERSION #2

2 oz. silver tequila

8 oz margarita mix (with or without alcohol)

DIRECTIONS:
Place all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled 1/3 with ice. Shake and strain into martini or margarita glasses! Garnish with a maraschino cherry if you like!
