Happy Thirsty Thursday folks!
As promised, today I’m sharing a delicious little libation to go along with that fabulous Cheddar Pub Cheese with Everything Pita Chips from Monday. I’m a woman of my word friends!
So before cherry season is over let’s celebrate summer with this sweet and tart Cherry Margarita.
Everytime I visit the market it’s, here a cherry, there a cherry, everywhere a cherry, cherry! This summer, I’ve made my Cherry Vanilla Scones, my Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes with Cherry Compote, my Easy Cherry Pear Baked Oatmeal, and now with the help of my friends from my favorite craft cocktail mixer company, Powell & Mahoney, the Happy Hour pièce de résistance, this Cherry Margarita!
Powell & Mahoney makes margarita making incredibly easy and extremely tasty! You’ll only need a handful of cherries and a few other ingredients before you’ll be kicking back with one of these beauties and toasting with friends! Enjoy!
- 1-2 Tbsp. coarse salt
- 1/4 cup about 10-12 pitted cherries
- Sprinkle of granulated sugar
- 2 oz. silver tequila
- 2 oz. Powell & Mahoney Margarita Mix
- Squeeze of fresh lime juice
- 1 cup ice
- one stemmed cherry and one slice of fresh lime, for garnish if desired
- Place salt on a small plate. Rub the rim of your glass with a wedge of lime to moisten. Dip in salt. Set aside.
- Muddle cherries and a sprinkle of sugar in a cocktail shaker until well crushed. Add the tequila, the Powell & Mahoney Margarita, a squeeze of fresh lime juice and some ice.
