I originally made this for #NationalTequilaDay, but here’s never a bad time to drink tequila. Whether it’s for a national holiday or just be an excuse to drink tequila, I’m okay with it! Here’s a simple Elderflower margarita recipe that I use all the time.
If you haven’t noticed, I use @stgermainuk A LOT. It’s a staple in my home bar and it should be in yours too! I personally like to add ginger ale on top of this, which isn’t a margarita (technically) but I’m a rebel!
Aesthetics are my thing, so I made these floral ice cubes moreso for the look. They aren’t hard to make. Fill an ice tray halfway, so that each cube is half full. Add a few flower petals on top. Pop the tray into a freezer until frozen. Pull the tray out and fill to the top with water. Place them back into the freezer until frozen. Done! You can find these particular flowers here.
IT’S TEQUILA TIME!!!!!
- 2 oz Tequila
- 1 oz St. Germain
- 1 oz. Lime Juice
- Salt or sugar (for rim)
Rub a lime wedge around the rim of your glass. Dip the rim into salt or sugar. I find it easiest to use a flat surface. Flat plates help wit this! Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake to chill. This should take 10-12 seconds. Pour into your rimmed glass and sip!
