Buckle up guys – this cocktail (the brain child of one of my best friends Adam) is going to rock your world.
An integral part of the Mexico City Happy Hour menu is cocktails! This is exactly how you need to start your happy hour.
A vanilla based tequila cocktail inspired by our trip to Mexico City!! It’s a fun spin on a margarita and honestly – it’s life altering!! Also very easy to make in batches!
- 4 ounces tequila blanco
- 4 ounces freshly squeezed orange juice
- 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste (or vanilla extract if you can’t find paste)
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 3-4 dashes bitters
- pinch of salt and orange zest twist for garnish
Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker, give a good stir to mix honey and vanilla paste. Fill cocktail shaker 3/4 full with ice and shake for 10 seconds. Strain into chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a lime or orange twist.
** Can also be served over ice with a splash of soda water and can easily be made into batch cocktails for a party**
