Hi, friends! I’m super excited because it’s Margarita of the Month day here on the Spot! Just in case there was any doubt as to my excitement level I think the overuse of exclamation points in those first two sentences conveys my mood. :) I’ll do my best to curtail that from here on out.
Are you curious about this month’s flavor? I can assure you that it has been strictly scrutinized and duly tested (it’s a tough job, but …). For this month, I present to you the vanilla almond margarita, a sweeter-than-usual but oh so yummy cocktail that gives January the boost it needs to live up to the warm and fuzzy month that is December.
Made with vanilla bean-infused simple syrup, you’ll first pick up the smooth, rich notes of vanilla, followed by a bit of tang from Amaretto and the teensiest drop of almond extract. Of course, being the tequila enthusiasts we are, we made sure that this recipe allows the distinctive tequila flavor to stand tall in this drink. Make no mistake; despite the name, this is no sissy margarita. Rather, it’s a winter-inspired drink that will pair well with your favorite spicy dish.
