Imagine my delight upon arriving at our hotel to discover it housed a delightful bar, namely Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville, home to several of my very favourite things, namely tequila and mexican food! I politely informed my lovely hubs that should he ever be unable to find me I would more than likely be found in residence at the bar with a cocktail and nacho mountain keeping me company! Well, its always important to have a pre-defined meeting point in case of separation, no?
So let me introduce you to one of our very favourite concoctions from our 'local' - even the hubs liked this one and he is not a massive fan of tequila (I know, I know but his other attributes far outweigh this minor flaw!).
I give you The Pink Cadillac (adapted from Jimmy Buffett's Pink Cadillac Margarita recipe)
- 45ml Tequila
- 15ml Cointreau
- 100ml Margarita Mix
- Splash of cranberry juice, to taste
Combine the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and get shaking. Serve over ice, preferably in a margarita glass, with a slice of orange. Salted rim optional!
