Long time no see? read? Whatever it is I’m happy to be back!
I think Cinco De Mayo has to be the most fun holiday to celebrate! We love celebrating the Mexican-American culture + really enjoy eating all the delicious food! Since Friday is the big day I just HAD to make a new margarita to celebrate! Raspberry Beergaritas it was! I love any and everything raspberry and these miiight just be my new favorite!I used Modelo in these margaritas, but really any type of Mexican beer will do! The raspberry simple syrup is seriously so easy to make, and I used it this weekend with some lemonade and vodka and it was AMAZING. You can always add in a few muddled raspberries if you want a more intense fruity flavor!
Also, does it get any more perfect than Cinco De Mayo falling on Friday this year!? I think not! We plan to have fajitas, LOTS of margaritas including this one, and queso of course!
2 oz lime juice
2 oz Mexican Beer
1.5 oz Silver Tequila
1.5 oz orange juice
1 oz Raspberry Simple Syrup (recipe below)
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
2 cups raspberries
Fill a shaker with ice. Add in the lime juice, beer, tequila, orange juice, and simple syrup. Shake to combine. Pour into a margarita glass filled with crushed ice. Add a lime wedge or raspberry for garnish.
In a small pot combine the water and sugar. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil. Once the sugar has dissolved add in the raspberries and simmer for 5 minutes. Turn the heat off and cover pan, letting raspberries steep in the syrup for 20 minutes. Strain into a glass container. Keep in refridgerator for up to a month.
