You might think that the month of February already has too many holidays. Well, here’s a holiday we can all get behind. Join us this Friday as we celebrate National Margarita Day.
Yep. It’s a thing.
To prepare, we headed to our South Loop Tasting Room and asked our crack team of cocktail specialists for their best custom margarita recipe. Check it out:
The Binny’s Margarita
2oz Don Julio Blanco
3/4oz Gran Torres
1/4 to 1/2oz Agave Nectar (Add more or less to taste)
2 1/2oz Fresh Lemon/Lime juice blend (Add more or less to taste)
Give it a quick shake, strain over ice and garnish with a slated rim and lime wheel.
That agave nectar is the secret to a great margarita. It’s cleaner in taste and naturally lower in calories than sugar or high fructose corn syrup based mixers. Special thanks to Josh, our bartender, for sharing his awesome Margarita recipe!
Are you all ready for something different? We bring you… get ready for it… “The Marroquin.”
Josh Dempsey, our South Loop bartender, is sharing his sweet treat with us! Inspired by his girlfriend (awww) he named this Spanish-french cocktail after her and mixed in a few of her favorite ingredients!
1 part Partida Reposado Tequila
1 part St. Germain
1 part Agave Nectar
A pinch of fresh squeezed lemon and lime.
Shake ingredients with ice, strain into chilled rocks glass coated with salt. It’s a one-two punch… to your mouth! Enjoy that sweet and sour mix of cocktail greatness.
