Only 2 weeks until Halloween & Day of the Dead — you’d better practice your margarita-making. Here’s a creepy cocktail that is bloody good!
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 is awesome in this cocktail. For the rim of the margarita, we use black salt for contrast.
