Keep reading for tips when ordering your next margarita.
Before we get too advanced here, let’s go through a classic margarita. If you love a good margarita, you’re well aware of what goes into one. If not, then you probably want to start basic and move up. So, what’s in a classic margarita? Typically only three ingredients are sufficient with some good tequila, freshly-squeezed lime juice, and orange liqueur. Mix this up together in a cocktail shaker, then pour it through into a glass with some ice and a salted rim. If you’re feeling fancy, ask the bartender to throw an umbrella in it. This is your classic margarita that’s so easy to order you only have to ask, “Can I have a margarita?”
Sweeten the drink
If a classic margarita isn’t going to do it for you, there’s nothing wrong with mixing it up a bit. You can always sweeten it up a bit by adding a little bit of agave syrup. Agave is a succulent that’s used to make tequila. However, its nectar is about one and a half times sweeter than sugar and can be used as a natural sweetener.
Keep in mind that while agave syrup might taste great in your margarita, it has a higher calorie count per serving than table sugar. So, if you’re watching your calories, sugar or an artificial sweetener might be a better option.
Kick the rim
Margarita salt or Kosher salt are excellent ways to cut some of the sweetness of your drink. But you can change things up a bit by adding some extra kick to your drink. instead of adding salt to the rim of your glass, ask for some seasoning. Some Tajin is an excellent choice as it’s formulated to complement sweet fruits. If you don’t have any handy or want to try a seasoning of your own, a combination of red chili powder, dried lime zest, garlic powder, salt, cayenne pepper powder, and a little bit of sugar. This is a great way to switch things up a bit with your margarita.
Mix it up
If you’d like to veer off the beaten path a bit and try something new, there’s a whole world of flavored margaritas that offer a variety of flavors and kick. Get all the flavor without the calories when you order a skinny margarita that comes with tequila, fresh lime juice, orange juice, and maple syrup. Change up your flavor by adding frozen strawberries, pineapple juice, watermelon, or cream of coconut with your lime. If you’re one for a smoky drink, then you’re sure to enjoy a mezcal margarita that adds mezcal to your tequila. Do you love spicy food? Order your marg with some jalapeño slices for a little bit of extra kick. Mix things up a bit and experiment. You might be surprised at what you find.
