An Orange Margarita is a Classic Margarita with Greenbar Orange liqueur instead of Triple Sec - this reduces the sweetness and boosts the organic orange taste.
To make our award-winning orange liqueur, we hand-zest hundreds of local oranges for an intense tang and bitter-sweetness.
Pair this Orange Margarita with jalapeno cornbread muffins, carnitas or an earthy gumbo.
Add a splash of smokiness to a margarita with mezcal. We recommend this cocktail if you love margaritas but are also a mezcal fan who enjoys the hint of smoke.
We've heard that the deep rich flavor makes the drink taste strong but the alcohol level is about the same as a standard 'rita. We love this combo of smooth, mellow IXÁ Silver tequila, with the tartness of lime and the earthiness of mezcal.
Did you know margarita's are one of the most popular cocktails in the United States and tequila is the spirit of choice in our home State, California? With all that drinking, it's good to understand the terms. What's the difference between tequila and mezcal? When it comes down to semantics; tequila is a type of mezcal but here's an easy way to understand the major differences:
Both are made with agave but tequila has more specific regulations
Tequila can only be produced from Blue Weber agave (agave tequilana) mainly in the Jalisco region of Mexico
Mezcal can be made with many more types of agave and the geographic territories are wider
When choosing mezcal look for a producer who uses traditional methods: roasting the agave hearts in a pit to impart the unique sweet and smoky flavor.
Pair this Mezcal Margarita with any Oaxacan foods especially mole, pisole and tlayuda. If you're up for it: fried chapulines (crickets) are the perfect crunchy drinking snack.
Pretty in pink and a fun alternative to a classic margarita. We love this twist on a margarita as it adds an extra punch of flavor.
Greenbar Hibiscus Liqueur was developed by Litty and Melkon as a homage to their favorite Mexican agua frescas, it adds floral flavors cut with citrus and black tea making it a grown up drink designed especially for margaritas.
Enjoy with bar food or a plate of your favorite snacks.
Complex and delicious served straight from the bottle, IXÁ Reposado Tequila is also a great ingredient in craft cocktails as it adds complexity and depth without overriding other ingredients.
Pair with savory pastries. We especially love Armenian boreg or piroshki and have even tried it with nazook which pulled out some of the deeper coffee flavors.
