Every February 22, tequila lovers around the world come together and raise their glasses in honor of National Margarita Day.
As cocktail enthusiasts, we at Moscow Copper couldn’t resist joining in on the celebration--heaven forbid we ever have to miss out on a liquor-themed holiday!
While we love a good old-fashioned margarita, we thought it would be fun to see what happened when we combined some of our favorite Moscow Mule flavors--ginger in particular--with this Mexican favorite.
We found a recipe for a Rosemary Ginger Margarita, mixed it up, poured it into our pure copper mugs, and our minds were blown. In fact, it was so good, we couldn’t help but do the Mexican Hat Dance every time we took a sip.
Now that’s the sign of a great beverage!
From now on, we intend to raise our copper mugs, filled with this delicious drink, in honor of National Margarita day every day.
We hope you’ll join us!
The cold, refreshing, flavor-packed cocktail is just as easy to make as it is to drink.
Check out how we mix it up in the video below…
Rosemary Ginger Margarita Recipe
- 3 ounces 100% agave tequila
- Juice of 3 limes
- 3 tablespoons rosemary ginger simple syrup
- Splash of San Pellegrino or other carbonated water
- Salt for rimming
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 ounce ginger, chopped
- 1 large sprig of fresh rosemary
Step 1: For the simple syrup, simply combine ingredients in a small sauce pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, turn the heat off and let sit for 30 minutes for the flavors to infuse. Strain into a jar and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Step 2: Rim 2 glasses in salt by using the lime to moisten the rim and then dip into the salt.
Step 3: To make the margarita, combine 3 ounces tequila, juice of 3 limes, and 3 tablespoons simple syrup in a cocktail shaker or jar. Shake and strain into ice-filled glasses. Top with a splash of San Pellegrino.
