With warm weather on its way, it’s time to bring the heat (literally) with a refreshing, flavorful spicy margarita! On this episode of In The Know: Bar Master, mixologist and cocktail expert, Josué Gonzaléz (@josue.allday) shares his signature Hot Margarita Summer recipe, which features traditional margarita ingredients like tequila and lime juice, revved up with chili liqueur and a Fresno chili pepper ice cube. It’s time to kick off outdoor party season with some spice!
1 oz Cazadores Tequila Blanco
0.5 oz Ancho Reyes Verde Poblano Liqueur
0.5 oz St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
1 oz honeydew melon juice
0.75 oz lime juice
0.25 oz chamomile honey syrup (Josué makes this by diluting honey with chamomile tea)
Fresno watermelon ice cube (Josué makes this by freezing watermelon juice with water and a Fresno chili pepper)
Tajin seasoning, for rim
Orange, for rim
In a cocktail shaker, add the chamomile honey syrup, melon juice, lime juice, poblano liqueur, elderflower liqueur and tequila.
Fill your shaker tin with ice, then shake the cocktail.
Prepare your glass by seasoning half the rim with Tajin seasoning, using the juice from an orange to help it stick. Place the Fresno watermelon ice cube inside the glass.
Pour the margarita into the glass, and enjoy!
