#DOTW: Brilliant Margarita

I love a good classic like a Margarita, but then again there’s always room for improvement. Or room to shake things up, and make a new version. I know it’s terrible, but I don’t like to drink a lot of water. I like things that taste good, and water just has no actual taste to it, so I usually drink seltzer (I like the bubbles), and I appreciate the flavored ones. I came across a new brand named Sovany, and I’m in love with their flavors. They don’t taste like an additive, but rather than the actual fruit, kind of like it was infused. Which of course, in true mixologist fashion, made me think of a flavored cocktail. I used the orange flavored one to make myself a Margarita with it, and it was delightful. Of course you can use any of their flavors, I’m 100% sure of impeding success!

What you’ll need:

Combine tequila, agave syrup and lime juice in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well. Rim a cocktail glass with salt and fill with ice. Strain contents of the shaker into the glass. Top off with Sovany. Garnish with a slice of lime.

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!
