In honor of Cinco De Mayo, I figured I'd share a favorite margarita recipe that will literally blog your mind. And I know what you're thinking...Carrot Margarita?? Gross. Wrong! This Carrot Margarita recipe is inspired by Flora Farms in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

This margarita is  everything you could ask for in a good margarita: refreshing, not to sweet, a kick of spice, and only a few ingredients making it easy to make (and drink). Not to mention, carrot juice is good for you...so have a few ;-) 

For those of you celebrating Cinco De Mayo tonight, or just planning a summer BBQ or night with friends, this Carrot Margarita is a must-have and will blow everyone's mind! 

Cheers! 

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces fresh carrot juice (you can juice your carrots or buy 100% carrot juice from the store)
  • 2 ounces tequila (use your favorite brand)
  • 1/2 ounce fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce cointreau (orange liqueur)
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • Fresh peeled carrots with stems, for garnish
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes 
  • Salt to rim the glass

Directions

Wet rim of glass with lime juice and press into salt. Chill glass. Flora Farms put the Carrot Margarita in a mason jar, which is a cute and rustic idea. 

Combine carrot juice, lime juice, orange juice, simple syrup, cointreau, and tequila in a cocktail shaker with some ice cubes. Shake until chilled, about 30-40 seconds. 

Strain over ice and into a glass (or mason car). 

For garnish, sprinkle some chili flakes on top with a fresh carrot with green stem. You can also add a sliced lime to the rim for color.
