Here is one of our three "spooky cocktails" that we created for Halloween! Tequila + Strawberry Basil Cocktail Syrup.
Spooky Margarita After Midnight Cocktail Recipe
Margaritas are for every season. Try and change our minds. We subbed out the normal Triple Sec for a splash of Naranja, to give the margarita a true orange texture. The naranja pairs really nicely with the muddled strawberries; those flavors tend to agree with each other. We added some vampire teeth as a garnish for extra spook, but feel free to get creative and rim with red sugar or salt! You could even throw some red drippy icing on the side to look a little bloody. We hope you take the skeleton of this recipe and run with it [or from it ;)].
2 oz Tequila
½ oz Naranja
½ oz Strawberry Basil Syrup
1 oz Lime Juice
Muddle strawberries in bottom of a rocks glass.
In a separate shaker tin, add the remaining ingredients.
Add ice and shake for 6-8 seconds.
Add fresh ice to rocks glass and strain mixture into glass. Cheers!
