#DOTW: Añejo Honey Lemon Margarita

I have never seen a more perfect cocktail to adorn the transition from this looooong winter to the impending spring! I have made all kinds of versions of margaritas, and this is definitely one of my faves! Watch out, it’s strong! If you prefer it a little on the lighter side, do add some sour mix. Add a little green food coloring for St. Patrick’s Day…..

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz 1800 Añejo Tequila (Or Añejo Tequila of your choice)
  • 1 oz Grand Marnier
  • 3/4 oz honey
  • 3/4 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • lemon slice or peel for garnish

Add all ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker, shake very well (the honey takes a minute to incorporate). Rim half of the glass with rock salt. Add ice to the glass, then pour in Añejo mixture. Garnish with lemon.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
