Did you know that February 22 is National Margarita Day? Where will you be clinking glasses? If a Mexican restaurant is what you’re thinking, you might want to rethink your plans, as on Cinco de Mayo and National Margarita Day, these types of places tend to be a little busy (We learned quickly).
So, if you’re looking for something calm, cool and collected, yet a place where deliciousness shines, we have two places in mind. The first is to stay home. Yes, we’re really saying that, but only if you are ambitious, as we have a mouthwatering cocktail recipe that’s a must-have on this special day. If that isn’t your style and you want the liquid enjoyment without the hassle, head on over to Spoto’s Oyster Bar in Palm Beach Gardens and just say, “Hot & Cool Marg-Tini.” Why Spoto’s? Well, that’s who shared with us this spicy, yet refreshing marg-tini recipe so you’ll be able to enjoy this special marg-tini right from the original maker.
Spoto’s Oyster Bar will be serving the Hot & Cool Marg-tini on National Margarita Day for $11.50, along with a Watermelon & Jalapeño Margarita ($11) and a variety of tequila-based cocktails. If you go in between 4-6 p.m., you’ll also be able to take advantage of their happy hour menu.
Hot & Cool Marg-tini
1 oz. Silver tequila
3 medium cucumber rings (peeled)
1 jalapeño ring (¼-inch thick, deseeded)
Fresh lime juice (from 2-3 lime wedges)
½ oz. Thatcher’s Cucumber liqueur
½ oz. sour mix
In a martini shaker, combine cucumber and jalapeño rings. Muddle vigorously. Fill tin with ice, then add remaining ingredients into shaker. Shake forcefully for 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a cucumber wheel. Cheers!
