Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita

Rhubarb and Tequila.

Then I felt like adding some Strawberries. And Lime juice. And a sugared rim.

If you are having some fun this weekend, I HIGHLY recommend making a batch of these gorgeous cocktails! (If you want to turn these into a non-alchoholic drink, then just add club soda to the simple syrup and lime juice!)

    My favorite shooter is the pineapple upside down cake:

    1 part Cake vodka (I used Pinnacle I think)
    1 part pineapple juice

    Put in a shaker of ice and shake shake shake.
    Strain into a shotglass with one stemless marachino cherry.
    Knock it back!

  64. Khara says:

    My favorite cocktail is a Mai Tai! It took me forever to find orgeat syrup in a local liquor store, but that ingredient takes it to a whole new level and is totally worth it! Can’t wait to make these margaritas… tequila might have to be my “summer liquor” this year, yum! :)

  65. I’m loving this Thirsty Thursday thing! My favorite cocktail is a blood orange whisky sour with Maker’s Mark whisky. My husband makes the best drinks. He’s so into cocktails that he enrolled in the Manhattan Bartending School a couple of years ago and took the course just as a hobbyist.

    Hi Heather!

    Much thanks for this recipe & the giveaway. Happy Cinco de Mayo!

    I would have to say that my favorite cocktail that I have concocted would be what my roommate and I call the “Destination”.

    It’s delicious, has that little bit of bite, yet sweet at the same time.

    2 oz. Whipped Vodka (or Vanilla)
    1 oz. Cookie Dough Vodka
    1 oz. Coconut Rum
    4 oz. Milk (I use Organic 1%)
    Chocolate syrup
    Caramel syrup
    Chocolate sprinkles
    Whipped cream (optional)

    1)Using free-hand technique, begin by swirling some chocolate sauce and caramel around the inside sides of a martini glass.
    1)Combine all liquors together into a shaker filled about half way with ice.
    2)Add milk and about a tsp. of choc. syrup.
    3) Shake very well until the shaker (if metal) is very cold on the outside (about 45 seconds vigorously).
    4)Strain into your martini glass, top with whipped cream and then your sprinkles.

    This has a great flavor to it but is not too sweet. When travelling into Ohio, they actually sell a few different types of whipped cream that is alcohol infused. Highly recommended with this if you’re fortunate to get it (PA does not sell it here). ;-)

    Thanks again for your awesome recipe; I’ll be making it today for my family with some Mexican dishes!

    Cheers!

    I made these for Cinco de Mayo…they were delicious! I do recommend letting the cocktail chill after combining all of the liquor/simple syrup…it’s much better chilled when poured over ice.

    Make it ahead of time and it’s sure to please!!

  205. SALLY Tews says:

    I want to make these as Matt says~always everythng made and then chilled is the best.I have to find the rhubarb though:-)

  206. Tessa says:

    Sunset Beach –
