Exotic Margarita

Summer is officially upon us, and in turn, so are summery cocktails.  Nothing says summer more than Margaritas in my book, especially when spiked with spicy chili liqueur and tropical flavors.  This very Exotic Margarita is made with Exotico Tequila Blanco, a crisp and peppery unaged tequila made from 100% blue agave.  The fresh flavor of agave comes through nicely in this margarita and works nicely with the green chili liqueur that gives this cocktail an extra kick.

If you can’t find fresh passionfruit in your local grocery store, you can always use passionfruit juice or passionfruit puree, but fresh is always best in my humble opinion.  Cut the passionfruit in half, reserve one half for the garnish, and scoop the other half into your cocktail tin.  Add all the other ingredients, shake, and garnish with fresh orchids and a slice of dried mango.

Exotic Margarita

1-1/2 oz Exotico Blanco Tequila
1-1/2 oz Green Chili Liqueur
1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
¼ oz Agave Syrup
1 Whole Fresh Passionfruit – Half for Mixing, and Half for Garnish
1 Slice Dried Mango

Cut passionfruit in half and scoop half the seeds into your cocktail tin.  Add Exotico Tequila, green chili liqueur, lime juice, agave syrup, and ice, and shake vigorously.  Strain into a margarita glass that has been rimmed with salt and dried chili powder.  Garnish with the remaining half of the passionfruit, a slice of dried mango, and fresh orchids.
