While traditional margaritas are made with lime juice and triple sec, there are many variations out there that can be just as delicious (if not more so!). Today, we’ll be exploring one such variation: The Filtered Clear Margarita. Made with Tequila Avión and other carefully chosen ingredients, this see-through concoction is sure to delight your guests while also making for an Instagram-worthy photo op. So sit back, relax and let’s dive into the wonderful world of clear margaritas!
Different Types of Margaritas
When it comes to margaritas, there are many variations to choose from. One of the most popular is the classic margarita, made with lime juice and triple sec. However, if you’re looking for something a little different, there are plenty of other options out there.
One such variation is the passion fruit margarita. Made with fresh fruits and sweetened with a touch of sugar, this fruity twist on the classic drink is perfect for summertime sipping.
If you prefer your drinks on the spicy side, why not try a jalapeño or Avión Chili Mango margarita? These fiery concoctions add some heat to your cocktail game while still maintaining that signature tangy flavor.
For those who like their cocktails on the sweeter side, a guava margarita might be just what you need! The tropical fruit gives this drink its sweetness while also providing a refreshing burst of flavor.
No matter which type of margarita you choose to indulge in, one thing is certain: Tequila Avión makes for an excellent base spirit in any variation!
How to Make a See-Through Margarita
One of the most intriguing variations of the classic margarita is the see-through or clear margarita. This cocktail is unique because it lacks any added color, allowing for its natural clarity to shine. But how exactly can you achieve this visually stunning drink? Here’s a quick guide on how to make your own see-through margarita.
- 1 ½ oz. Avión Reserva Cristalino
- 1 oz. Filtered Lime Juice
- 1 oz. Simple Syrup
- Add one and a half ounces of Avión Reserva Cristalino, filtered lime juice and simple syrup to a shaker.
- Next, focus on technique. Shaking all ingredients together with ice will create air bubbles in the mixture, which can cloud the appearance when poured into a glass. Instead, stir gently until thoroughly mixed and strain carefully through a fine mesh strainer.
- Strain over coupette glass.
- Garnish with a lime twist.
- Remember to use only clear ice cubes and to omit any fruit juices that could add color.
With just these simple steps, you too can create an impressive see-through margarita that will leave your guests mesmerized by its visual appeal and delicious taste.
Other Elegant Cocktails to make with Tequila
Tequila is a versatile spirit that can be used to create elegant and sophisticated cocktails. Here are some ideas for you to try:
Firstly, the classic Tequila Sunrise cocktail is an elegant choice with its vibrant colors of orange and red. To make this drink, combine Tequila Avión with fresh orange juice and a splash of grenadine. Garnish with an orange slice for an aesthetically pleasing presentation.
Another classy option is the Paloma cocktail. A blend of tequila, grapefruit soda, lime juice and agave syrup creates a refreshing yet sophisticated mix that’s perfect for any occasion.
For something more unconventional but equally sophisticated, try making a Spicy Cucumber Margarita using jalapeño-infused Tequila Avión mixed with lime juice, cucumber and agave nectar. The heat from the jalapeño adds depth to the drink while still maintaining its elegance.
If you’re feeling fancy or hosting a special event, consider serving up some Espresso Martinis made using tequila instead of vodka. Simply shake together coffee liqueur, espresso shots and Tequila Avión over ice before straining into martini glasses.
With these elegant cocktails in your roster, your next party or night in will definitely impress your guests.
