Lemon Lime Mint Margarita

 

 

 

Just in time for Cinco de Mayo next week, I created a unique and refreshing summertime margarita to add to my cocktail repertoire. We have been experiencing some really pretty days, as April turns to May; filled with sunshine and perfect for sitting on my patio with a fun drink. This margarita, made with lemonade, lime juice, fresh mint and tequila is as delicious as it is pretty and I look forward to using this recipe all summer long.

If you are a mojito fan, you will love this twist on a margarita and its delightful muddling of the fresh mint. I don't own a tool to muddle the mint in the glass, but a wooden spoon worked just fine. Grab some chips and salsa, make yourself one of these margaritas and have a mini fiesta right at home.

To prepare this cocktail: wet the rim of a cocktail glass, then dip in kosher salt. Add crushed ice, 1 ounce lime juice and 4 fresh mint leaves to the glass. Muddle the leaves until they are bruised. Add 1 ounce white tequila and 4 ounces lemonade to the glass. Mix with cocktail stirrer, garnish with additional mint leaves and enjoy.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. That sounds like a good recipe. It's hard to believe we're on the heels of May. The weather is much better and things are coming alone outdoors. Can't wait to see more things flowering and the leaves on the trees. Have a great weekend!
