The Cinco de Mayo Collection
How you doin’? I had the pleasure of working with Jimmy Buffet and John Cohan at Margaritaville—Las Vegas. After opening it turned out to be the highest grossing restaurant in the United States. Go Jimmy!
The Margaritaville song was the impetus for the restaurant. It is complete with a large margarita glass a slide that the tequila mermaid slides down once an hour. Las Vegas is always fun but Margaritaville is a complete blast.
So in celebration of Cinco de Mayo and Margaritaville, here is a new Margarita made with St. Germain instead and orange liqueur.
St. Germain is naturally flavored, and each bottle can contain up to 1,000 elderberry flowers. St. Germain’s flavor is compelling, pleasantly floral, lightly herbal, sweet without being sugary, and is surprisingly great with tequila.
Whether at home or at Margaritaville, have a wonderful Cinco de Mayo.
1 ounce St. Germain
1-1/2 ounce tequila (I used Patron Silver)
1/2 ounce simple syrup
3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice ()
ChefSecret: Try using a mix of kosher salt and sumac to coat the rim of the glass. The sumac is what makes gives the salted rim a speckled red appearance. The sumac is optional, but it makes for a pretty presentation and adds a subtle hit of sour.
