Our blood-red cherry margarita that is bloody good! Happy Halloween & Day of the Dead — you’d better practice your margarita-making.The pizazz in this margarita comes from Amarena cherries and a dash of their syrup. We use a dash of the syrup to sweeten the margarita. The syrup also sinks beautifully into the cocktail if you prefer to serve a stirred (not shaken) version. (See the layering in the cocktail shaker in the picture above?) A cherry looks cute on the rim of the glass, or plop it in.The smoky taste of Mezcal tequila in our Blood-red cherry margarita is awesome in this cocktail. For the rim of the margarita, we use black salt for contrast.
We’ve got more margaritas for you to practice while you are at it. Another blood-red margarita is ‘We’ve got our eye on you! Hibiscus margarita‘. You’ll be sure to freak out your guests with this one.

Prepare a cocktail glass by running a lime around the rim and coating it with the black salt.
Plop all the ingredients (minus the garnish) into a cocktail shaker with plenty of ice and shake, shake, shake your moneymaker. The more you shake, the yummier the drink.
