The big day is coming up...
Are you so excited?
Tomorrow is National Margarita Day. So here's a not-so-classic, but very seasonal take on the cocktail.
Seven Peaks Margarita
1 1/4 oz Tequila Don Julio Añejo
1/4 oz Grand Marnier
1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
1 oz Simple Syrup
1 Ginger Slice
1 Apple Wedge
1 Persimmon Wedge
Apple and Persimmon Fan for Garnish
Muddle ginger, apple, and persimmon with the lime and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Add Tequila Don Julio Añejo and Grand Marnier to the shaker with ice, and shake well. Double strain into double rocks glass filled with ice. Garnish with an apple and persimmon fan.
We know what you're thinking- persimmons and tequila aren't the first things that come to mind when you think of margaritas. But you will change your mind.
