Mayan Margaritas

Mayan Margaritas

Our trip to the Yucatan? Well it didn’t start off exactly the way that I had hoped…

After a quick flight from DFW to Cancun International Airport, we arrived at a Yucatanian resort packed with busy families, tipsy college students, and frankly not enough staff to help incoming travelers get checked in.

Luckily, I found an oasis in the form of a mahogany and marble lined bar just south of the sweltering, sun drenched lobby. A mayan bartender greeted me with a smile and poured me the most refreshing glass of tequila and lime infused bliss, I had ever tasted — And that my friends, is what I have begun referring to as the Mayan Margarita.

So let’s make my new favorite drink, the Mayan Margarita!

First, we’ll start off by muddling limes juice, and a cpl limes in a cocktail shaker…

Then we’ll add LOTS OF HONEY AND TEQUILA!

This honey-lime-tequila loaded libation is topped off with sparkling water for a bubbly, effervescent twist which makes it refreshing, as well as strong!

Here is the recipe for the Mayan Margaritas…

If you make it, tag me on Social Media! 🙂  I’d love to see how it turns out!

Mayan Margaritas Recipe

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

These Mayan Margaritas are served in the Yucatan and we enjoy the unique flavor that honey, mint, and fizzy sparkling water bring to the classic flavors of margaritas.

Ingredients

  • Tequila Blanco - 2oz. shots per cocktail
  • Wedges of Lime - about 4 per cocktail (about 1/4 c. lime juice)
  • 2-3 T honey
  • 1 Spring Fresh Mint
  • Ice
  • Sparkling Water
  • Optional- Salt for rimming the glasses, if desired

Instructions

  1. In a cocktail mixer, squeeze the 3 lime wedges but then also add them to the cup so that you can muddle in the fragrance of the oils in the lime wedge. Add fresh mint into the cocktail mixer.
  2. Muddle the lime and mint for 1 min.
  3. Add the honey and tequila (4 oz. tequila if making 2 cocktails).
  4. Add a scoop of ice and just a splash of sparkling water to help the shaking process.
  5. Put the lid on the cocktail mixer and shake it for 30 seconds. Pop the lid off and pour the mixture into a drinking glass.
  6. Top off with extra sparkling water, if needed.
