When it comes to the classic Mexican cocktail that is a margarita, I've got thoughts. I like a margarita on the rocks or as 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, on the road, it seemed fitting to tweak the Cadillac by adding a touch of Jarritos and re-coining it the Mazda 5. At home, I make it with guava juice and a splash of soda for a Guava Cadillac of sorts. 

Ingredients

  • 6 paper thin slices jalapeño chile

    divided

  • 2 ounces guava juice

    (can substitute Kerns guava nectar)

  • 1 1/2 ounces good quality Anejo tequila
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce agave nectar
  • 1/2 ounce orange liqueur

    (such as Grand Marnier or Cointreau)

  • splash sparkling water

Instructions

Place two or three slices of jalapeno, guava juice, the tequila, lime juice, agave, and orange liqueur in a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake well until chilled and frosty, about 15 to 20 seconds. Strain into the glass, add a few ice cubes and top with a splash of soda. Garnish with a few more slices of jalapeno and serve.
