Six Flavoured Margaritas To Spruce Up Your Spring Bash

Six Best Flavoured Margaritas To Prepare At Your Springtime Bash

The season of newly sprouting blossoms is slowly descending upon us, which means it is time to take our home hosting endeavours into the outdoors. Aromas of fresh cut grass, clear blue skies and inviting breezes herald the time to go all out with your pool parties, patio lunches and elegant afternoon teas enjoyed in the sprawling lawns. Spring season means all things cheery and pleasant and this is reflected in our culinary preferences too! Warm mulled wines and dense foods are replaced with cool cocktails and fresh produce that are characteristic of the changing climes.

And one drink which particularly spells all things fun and wild is a classic margarita, made from quality tequila blanco, lime juice and triple sec, served chilled in a salt rimmed glass. A margarita is a classic cocktail that is perfect for such springtime affairs and it can be made in large batches in big jugs to be served with lots of crushed ice at your next party. What’s more, a margarita can be infused with a lot of different flavours like fresh fruits, purees and herbs to celebrate the produce of the spring season.

The next time you stir up a batch of margaritas for your house party, here are some ingredients you can try to introduce into the classic recipe for a delightful twist:

Sriracha Mango Margarita

Over time, mixing spicy and sweet flavours in cocktails has become a favoured trend because it allows mixologists to explore a wide variety of tastes in one glass. A spicy sriracha poured into a margarita that is brimming with mango nectar and fat chunks of this sweet, fleshy fruit is a very inviting combination that coupled with the intense flavours of a Don Julio Blanco forms a layered drink dancing on your taste buds. This is the perfect cocktail to serve at a tiki or island-themed party to bring out the flavours of delicious tropical fruits.

Jalapeño Grapefruit Margarita

Another concoction which brings together spicy flavours in a classic cocktail is a drink loaded with the heat of jalapeño peppers. You can muddle chopped up jalapeños into a margarita mix and add some grapefruit juice for a lip smacking tang. The zesty kick of the citrus fruit blends well with the tang of the lime juice, undercuts some of the bitterness of the triple sec and tames the spiciness of peppers, creating a very balanced drink.

Strawberry Basil Margarita

Another margarita variation that becomes a blast of freshness is an herby mix that involves adding ingredients like basil into the classic recipe. Strawberry and basil is a very refreshing combination and when this pairing is added to tequila, it builds on the slightly intense but sweet notes of the spirit to lead to a drink that is extremely cool and rejuvenating. You can prepare this margarita variation using fresh strawberries so you can make the most of its tangy notes.

Coconut Margarita

A variation that sings of the flavours of the tropics, the coconut margarita is a very sweet and decadent drink that can be made using quality Don Julio Blanco tequila and lots of coconut cream. The silky, smooth coconut cream introduces a thoroughly indulgent quality into the cocktail, crafting a drink that is tangy and sweet, fun and luxurious.

Lemon Berry Margarita

Increase the amount of lime juice that goes into your margarita recipe and pair it with a splash of raspberry or blackberry juice or chopped up mixed berries to make a drink that is tangy, zesty and just a tad bit sweet. You can do away with the triple sec so you have a drink which oozes a refreshing quality without any hint of bitter notes. This sweet cocktail is the perfect spring-summer drink to prepare at the next pool party you host.

Melon Margarita 

Use the flashy, neon green melon liqueur to craft this vibrant drink and make a cocktail that is sweeter than the classic recipe. The trick to a good margarita is to build your flavours slowly so you reduce the risk of overpowering your spirit with fruity notes. Pour the melon liqueur gradually and pull back when you feel like the cocktail is adequately sweet to arrive at a well balanced drink.
