Flags and fireworks, backyards and barbeques, sunshine and swimming pools… it’s official, summer is here!
While you are enjoying the parades, parties and patriotism that make this time of year so awesome, we thought we’d add a spicy little margarita recipe to help you get your groove on. The essential ingredient in this crafty quaff is the (sometimes hard to find) Ancho Reyes – a spicy liquor distilled from ancho chilies. It brings the earthy flavors of warm dried chilies and a hint of cinnamon, and it packs some heat! Find it ahead of time here – http://anchoreyes.com/en/locator.html
Here is the recipe – super simple with three equal parts, just add all the ingredients over ice and gently stir. Serves one.
The Laughing Glass Pineapple Firecracker Margarita
2 ounces Laughing Glass Original Margarita
2 ounces Ancho Reyes – ancho chile liquor
2 ounces fresh pineapple juice
Garnish with pineapple wedge
So what are your plans this summer? For us, the Fourth of July means gathering your friends, flashin’ some flesh, getting your groove on, and sipping margaritas in the sun. If you are still sitting at your desk with only visions of sunny beaches and frosty cocktails dancing in your head – don’t worry, the glory that is a THREE DAY HOLIDAY WEEKEND is right around the corner! So gather your crew, make this spicy cocktail, and let the fireworks begin!
