While we all love a classic margarita with fresh lime juice and a salted rim, there are times that call for a more festive version. At Dos Caminos, a trendy Mexican restaurant in New York, a new recipe using a blend of blueberry and pomegranate juice has become a popular cocktail on the menu.
Simple to make, this drink has a touch of sweetness with just enough tartness to make it a refreshing compliment to the restaurant’s spicy cuisine. And, with its bright magenta color, it would make quite a statement as the signature drink at your next fiesta!
1 oz Lowland white tequila (Partida or Herradura)
1 oz blueberry pomegranate juice
1/2 ounce triple sec
juice of half a lime
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker.
Shake hard with ice.
Strain over fresh ice.
Garnish with a few blueberries.
Created by mixologist Eben Klemm, this cocktail is a celebrity favorite and was recently featured in People Magazine as Jessica Simpson’s drink of choice.
