Fresh Cherry & Lime Margarita And 50+ Cinco de Mayo Margarita Madness Recipes {Beard and Bonnet} #glutenfree #vegan

As I was perusing the farmer’s market last Wednesday evening I spotted the most beautiful fresh cherries at one of my favorite organic fruit booths. The beautifully deep, rich hues of red immediately drew me in; I grabbed a sample and indulged in what has been a constant craving for the past few months. Cherries are one of my favorite fruits of all time, but the frozen ones just don’t do it for me so I anxiously await their arrival at the market every year. Back east I wouldn’t see them until sometime in June usually, but living in sunny southern California they have started to pop up already.

I grabbed 2 cartons, headed two booths over for a few limes and hurried home for a little cherry margarita action. Because you know… it’s Cinco de Mayo! Todd tends to like his margaritas on the savory side as opposed to a super sweet version, so for this particular recipe I toned down the sweet meter a bit. Of course, all you have to do to amp it back up is add a bit more agave.

These bad boys pair well with just about any type of Mexican fare, but if you need a few suggestions here are a few of my favorites:

Hush Puppy Tacos
Black Bean Enchiladas With Roasted Red Pepper Cashew Cream
Sweet Potato & Lime Taquitos
Super Easy Taco Bake
Black Bean Flautas
Roasted Poblano Chilaquiles
White Bean & Potato Tacos
Huevos Rancheros Enchiladas

Prep time
Total time
 
Author:
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 12-15 fresh cherries, stems removed, pitted, and minced *see note
  • juice of 1 large lime
  • 1 ounce blanco tequila
  • ½ ounce Grand Marnier
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons agave nectar or honey for sweetness
  • ice
  • tonic water
Garnish
  • Lime wedges
  • Fresh cherries
Instructions
  1. Combine the minced cherries, lime juice, tequila, Grand Marnier, agave nectar, and a 3 or 4 cubes of ice into a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for at least 30 seconds. Use a fine mesh strainer to strain the liquid into a cocktail glass pressing on the solids with the back of a spoon to release all of the moisture. Add ice to fill the glass and top with a splash of tonic for a bubbly effect. Stir to combine and garnish with a lime wedge and cherry.
Notes
To make quick work of mincing the cherries simply place them in a food processor and process them until they are chopped very fine
