One question people often ask before making their first margarita is what kind of tequila they should use. Although you could use any tequila variety, most bartenders recommend going with a blanco or a silver. Since these tequilas aren’t aged, they’re better suited for mixing. As a bonus, blanco tequilas are the most affordable, making them a perfect choice for large get-togethers.
If you’d prefer to add a little complexity to your margarita, consider researching a slightly aged reposado tequila. These tequilas have been aged for at least two months in oak barrels, which gives them a richer color and a unique flavor profile.
However, you should never use the long-aged añejo tequilas in a margarita. It makes no sense to drown out the nuanced flavors of a high-priced añejo in any cocktail mixture.
- 2 ounces blanco, silver, or reposado tequila
- 1 ounce lime juice
- ½ dropperful of Tribe CBD oil (citrus)
- ½ ounce agave syrup
- ½ ounce orange liqueur
- Lime wedge (optional)
- Add tequila, lime juice, CBD oil, agave syrup, and orange liqueur in a cocktail shaker.
- Fill your shaker with plenty of ice.
- Shake for at least 10 seconds.
- Strain your drink into an ice-filled rocks glass.
- Garnish with a lime wedge.
If you want to serve your margarita in an iconic salt-rimmed glass, you just need to prepare ahead of time. Before starting your drink, slice a lime wedge and run it across the rim of your rocks glass. Next, place the top of your glass in a plate of coarse salt, and you’re done!
However, since this is a CBD cocktail, we recommend adding a touch of high-quality CBD oil to your glass’s rim. The easiest way to do this is to squirt a few drops of our citrus CBD oil onto your lime wedge and then run it around the rim. Sure, this CBD might have subtle effects, but it certainly adds a unique touch to your tart treat.
FYI: Tribe CBD Also Offers A Non-Citrus CBD Oil
Although we often suggest using our citrus-flavored CBD oil in cocktails, please keep in mind Tribe CBD also offers a natural CBD oil. If you find the tart notes a tad too overpowering, please consider experimenting with our original CBD oil formula. You could find out more about our hemp-derived CBD formula on here.
