Want the brunch refreshment of a Bloody Mary with the laid back afternoon vibes of a margarita? You're in luck then, because I give you, the Marygarita.
Bloody Marias are no new thing, but I love the sweet / tart lime punch in a margarita especially with tequila, so I took my favorite aspects of each drink and combined them for a unique daytime cocktail. Enjoy!
[NOTE] For 1 large pitcher (5 cups)
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1 teaspoon hot sauce, such as tapatio or sriracha
1 cup tequila blanca
3/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup agave nectar
INGREDIENTS (BLOODY MARY RIM)
1/4 cup kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon ancho chili powder
In the bottom of the pitcher, muddle the cherry tomatoes and hot sauce until the tomatoes are well broken down, about 20 seconds. Add the tequila, lime juice, and agave. Taste, and adjust flavorings if needed. Add ice to the pitcher.
To serve, mix the bloody mary rim ingredients together in a shallow plate. Rub the rim of a glass with lime and press the glass into the bloody mary rim mixture. Twist it around a little to make sure it's fully coated. Repeat with remaining glasses. Pour the margaritas into each glass and enjoy!
