Yes, Dear Dedicated Readers, February 22, 2014 is National Margarita Day! So here’s another recipe for this month – this recipe comes from Milagro Tequila, even tho I didn’t have any Milagro on hand when I made the drink, it still turned out pretty well! Let’s not waste time, let’s make a margarita!

Veracruzana Pineapple Margarita

Everyone get ready...

Everyone get ready…

2 oz  Reposado Tequila

1 oz  Fresh Lime Juice

3/4 oz  Agave Nectar

4  Chunks Fresh Pineapple (plus some for garnish if desired)

2  Fresh Basil Leaves (or more if small, plus some for garnish if desired)

Put the pineapple and basil in a shaker and muddle…

Mmmm... pulpy....

Mmmm… pulpy….

until you have a pulpy mess…

Add the rest of the ingredients (except garnish of course) and a good handful of ice and shake until you’re silly…

strain into a glass over fresh ice and garnish as desired. This makes one decent-sized beverage.

Muddle another for a friend and drink up!

This is another good one! The basil is subtle, but there… I’m thinking if you want some spice a piece of fresh jalapeno or habanero added to the muddle would be good…

Enjoy National Margarita Day!

We’re back to the bar, see you soon!
