Spicy Guava Cadillac Margarita Cocktail Recipe

Spicy Guava Cadillac Margarita Cocktail Recipe

When it comes to the classic Mexican cocktail that is a margarita, I’ve got thoughts.

I like a margarita on the rocks or a classic Cadillac because it’s the luxury car of margaritas, and the addition of premium orange liqueur makes all the difference to me. But this cocktail is inspired by a road trip I took from Los Angeles to Austin, which went down in a Mazda 5 rental, which is decidedly not a Cadillac margarita.

So, it seemed fitting to tweak the Cadillac on the road by adding a touch of Mexican soda and re-coining it the Mazda 5. I made this Spicy Guava Cadillac Margarita Cocktail Recipe with guava juice and a splash of soda for a Guava Cadillac of sorts at home. 

Okay, now it’s time to stock up on these Mexican pantry ingredients, then try your hand at making this, and then share your creation with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!
