Not that you ever need an excuse to make a margarita, we gave you three just in case. A classic "daisy", a smoky añejo twist, and an inspired sour are all ready for the mixing below.

The Classic (makes 1)

The OG recipe for the Margarita, which translates into English as "daisy", which is a cocktail precursor to the sour.

  • 2 oz tequila blanco
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 3/4 oz triple sec

In a shaker with ice add tequila, lime juice, and triple sec. Shake thoroughly for 15 seconds. Strain into a coupe glass or Nick & Nora glass.

Old Flame (makes 1)

Aged tequila plays almost too nicely with the sweet smokiness of our Campfire Syrup™. Just like the one that got away, parting with this cocktail is such sweet sorrow.

In a shaker with ice, add tequila, lime juice, triple sec and Campfire Syrup™. Shake thoroughly for 15 seconds. Strain into a coupe glass or Nick & Nora glass.

A Dance With the Devil in the Blood Moon Light (makes 1)

Batman references aside, while this isn't a true margarita it's inspired by the basic formula and let's the versatility of unaged whiskey to shine through. It starts as a sweet serenade that could end devilishly with one too many waltzes.

In a shaker with ice add White Pike, blood orange juice, lime juice, triple sec and Campfire Syrup™. Shake thoroughly for 15 seconds. Strain into a coupe glass or Nick & Nora glass.
