There's absolutely nothing like have a nice cold margarita during the day. The joy of the sun beating on your skin or being indoors surrounded with good company to the sound of Buena Vista Social Club. All of this can be taken away if your choices of a perfect margarita doesn't include the best ingredients.
Agavero Orange Liqueur is a blend of 100% blue agave tequila, infused with the essence of oranges and pure agave nectar. The distiller, Lazaro Gallardo, created Agavero in 1857 in the region of Jalisco Mexico. This is great served either in a blended drink or on the rocks which is what I prefer.
For this recipe, I've decided to use Gran Centenario Tequila - Reposado. Since Agavero Orange is infused with the natural orange flavor and agave nectar, I was inspired to create a recipe with ginger, peaches, and agave syrup.
1.5 parts Gran Centenario Reposado (I like darker Tequilas.)
.75 parts Agavero Orange Liqueur
1/2 of 1 peach. Slice up the other 1/2 and freeze.
3 slices of ginger
1 tablespoon agave
1 lemon wedge
Muddle your peach, ginger and agave in your mixer. After, poor in your Agavero Orange and Gran Centenario. I like to give it a quick stir before dumping in the ice for the quick shake. Having a glass ready to go filled with ice, quickly fill your shaker with ice and give it a rapid shake for a good 10 seconds.
Strain your drink into your glass with ice and a squeeze of lemon on top before enjoying. Ginger is always optional. I've just been using it a lot because of its nutritional properties. If you want to not use ginger, try adding a few taps of cayenne pepper for a different type of heat.
The Agavero Orange was definitely a nice touch to this fresh fruit cocktail. I love the subtleness it brings and the orange oil essence you normally find in the peel.
As always, please drink responsibly and remember that this is intended for ages 21+!
