French Margarita

Well we had an Italian margarita and now there is a French margarita. We tried these last weekend and they were quite tasty! Anyone who makes them please leave a comment on the blog letting me know how you liked them! And of course we were enjoying them so much I forgot to take a picture! If you want to see what it looks like go to www.food2.com/recipes/french-margarita and check it out. The picture shown is from that site.  They use raspberries and blackberries for garnish. We didn’t, because we did not have any. Guess we’ll have to make them again so I can take my own pictures this time! The ingredients call for sweet and sour mix. We used our regular margarita mix. Enjoy!

Italian Margarita

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

INGREDIENTS:

1 oz. coconut flavored syrup (I use the sugar-free kind by DaVinci which you can find online or usually in stores like HomeGoods, Marshalls or TJMaxx)

1 oz. amaretto liqueur

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!
