This is no recipe for disaster, there is a new margarita recipe in town and truffles, cucumbers, celery, beets and even carrots are invited to the party. Stroll down to your local farmer’s market and stock up on these unexpected essentials to make a yummy drink for any season.  

Beets By J

A fresh and (almost healthy) tonic style cocktail created by California barman, Josh Goldman, is a perfect treat on a hot summer’s day. Made with fresh beet juice, citrus-infused agave syrup, and añejo tequila, this beets (see what we did there?) a boring cocktail any day of the week.

Frozen Cucumber Margarita

You’ve had cucumber water but have you enjoyed a cucumber margarita? The freshness of this ambiguous fruity vegetable (seriously, what is it?), pairs perfectly with Blanco tequila, as the coolness of the cucumber lowers the heat of the alcohol. Add a splash of St-Germain for a sweet and floral lift.   

Celery Margarita

Celery takes center stage as opposed to being an understudy for most cocktails (take that Bloody Mary.) The celery shrub is added to fresh celery juice, sugar, and rice vinegar to create a tangy syrup. Add to Blanco tequila, fresh lime, and pineapple juice to create an aperitif or meal accompaniment.
