Today’s 3-ingredient Elderflower Margarita recipe is brought to you just in time for summer sipping season. Cheers!
You know we take our tequila cocktails seriously around here, and this margarita is no exception. So grab a pitcher, a few glasses and some comfy deck chairs because this 3-ingredient Elderflower Margarita will definitely make you want to stay awhile!
Now I’ll admit, as much as I love elderflower liqueur, I’ve never had it in a margarita. My first thought was that it would be too sweet, but boy was I wrong. The floral notes of the elderflower liqueur are a natural complement to the herbal, woodsy flavors of the reposado tequila. Add a shot of freshness with some tangy lime juice, and you have yourself a first-class cocktail. Plus you can just as easily make a big pitcher of these Elderflower Margaritas for an impromptu happy hour as you can make one for yourself after a long day.
Simple? Yes. Dangerously so? Definitely.
- 3 parts reposado tequila
- 2 parts elderflower liqueur
- 1 part fresh lime juice
- Place tequila, elderflower liqueur and lime juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for 20 seconds. Pour into ice filled lowball glasses (with salted rims, if desired).
