One drink which particularly spells all things fun and wild is the quintessential margarita! Made with tequila, lime juice and triple sec, the cocktail is served chilled or frozen in a salt rimmed glass. This classic cocktail, perfect for summertime parties can be made in large batches ahead of time and also be infused with plenty of different flavours froms fresh fruits, purees or herbs to celebrate seasonal produce.

Sriracha Mango Margarita

A dash of fiery sriracha combined with a classic margarita brimming with mango nectar and fat chunks of the sweet, fleshy fruit, is an inviting combination that forms a layered drink that has a sweet-spicy contrast. The perfect cocktail to serve at a pool party to bring out the flavours of delicious tropical fruits.

Jalapeño Grapefruit Margarita

Yet another way to introduce spicy flavours in the margarita is to load up on heat with jalapeño peppers. Muddle sliced jalapeños into a margarita mix and add some grapefruit juice for a lip-smacking citrus hit. The zesty taste of grapefruit blends seamlessly with the tang of the lime juice, undercutting some of the bitterness from the triple sec while taming the spiciness of peppers, to create a very balanced drink.

Strawberry Basil Margarita

The blast of fresh herbs involves adding basil leaves to a classic marg. Since strawberry and basil are known to be a flattering combination, pairing it with tequila builds on the slightly intense but sweet notes of the spirit to lead to a drink that is extremely fruity and rejuvenating. Use a homemade concentrate or strawberry syrup if you run out of fresh fruit.

Coconut Margarita

Move over pina colada! A variation that radiates tropical energy, the coconut margarita is a sweet and decadent drink that is perfect to make with tequila and coconut cream. The silky cream introduces a thoroughly indulgent quality into the cocktail, resulting in a drink that is smooth and luxurious. Be liberal about the amount of lime juice that goes into the cocktail, doing away with the triple sec to eliminate the hint of bitterness.

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.
