The past month I’ve been experimenting with recreating some of the margarita recipes from la Cava del Tequila. Since today is Cinco de Mayo I figured it would be a good time to share them all in one blog post! I’ve made three so far (and planning to try another one tonight!), so as I make more I’ll be updating this post and sharing the newest versions.
This is one of my favorite margaritas that you’ll find at La Cava del Tequila. It sounds unusual but is actually quite delicious. The avocado lends a creaminess to it, but it’s just a great balance of tart and sweet with lime juice and midori added as well. Find the recipe for the avocado margarita here!
Black Magic Margarita
The black magic margarita was invented with input from Neil Patrick Harris, who is a big fan of Epcot! If you like a more fruity drink this is the perfect one for you, as it’s made with blackberries and blueberries. Find the recipe for the black magic margarita here!
The cucumber in this one is pretty subtle, but it’s very refreshing and has some pineapple juice to sweeten it up along with basil leaves and of course lime juice to balance things out. Find the recipe for the cucumber margarita recipe here!
A unique margarita, the Maelstrom margarita is named after the old Epcot attraction and features mango, blueberries, and habanero pepper. Find the recipe for the Maelstrom margarita here!
Blood Orange margarita
My personal favorite, this one was just the right balance of sweet and tart flavors. Find the recipe for the blood orange margarita here!
A few more that I’m hoping to make in the coming weeks: one of my favorites, the blood orange margarita, the maelstrom margarita (named after the extinct Epcot attraction), and the spicy jalapeno margarita. And if I can get the right ingredients, I’m also interested in trying the horchata margarita, the Wild One (a passion fruit based margarita), or the smokey pineapple. Maybe I’ll even branch out and try some other tequila based drinks like the Mexican mule, sangria, or El Negroni!
