Margaritas are one of the first drinks that come to mind when someone mentions cocktails, and Alex Snodgrass can’t get enough of them. Her food blog The Defined Dish is filled with recipes for this beloved mixology classic, and she’s here to help you change the way you look at this cocktail.
Classic margaritas are made with tequila, triple sec, and lime juice, and Snodgrass made only a few tweaks to the original recipe when coming up with this variation. Most notably, she added egg whites to the mix to make this cocktail extra foamy.
If you’ve never tried adding a few drops of coconut milk to your margaritas, now’s the time to give it a shot. Snodgrass is a huge believer that this ingredient can take your cocktails to new heights, and give them an irresistible, summery vibe.
An equally delicious variation of Snodgrass’s Clayton’s margaritas, this cocktail contains another amazing ingredient. She recommends using grapefruit juice to make your margaritas truly pop.
If you’re in the mood to try slightly smoky margaritas that taste just like juicy mangos, this recipe will be your cup of tea. The smokiness can be attributed to chipotle chili powder, used as one of the main ingredients in this cocktail.
