Sweet, spicy and oh so delicious!

Maple Chipotle Margarita | The Ultimate Summer Cocktail | Wayward Gourmet

I don't know about you, but I am absolutely pumped that summer is finally here!  We New Englanders have a finite amount of warm weather to enjoy, so when things heat up, you can bet we're taking full advantage of it. 

With the hot weather comes the need to cool down with a refreshing beverage, and boy do we have a delicious drink for you. It's sweet with a slight spicy kick to welcome the warm months in!

Try making a batch of these the next time you have friends over for a summer cookout!

 Maple Chipotle Margarita

  • 2.5 oz tequila, (we prefer a middle shelf, silver tequila, but you can use whichever brand and type you prefer
  • 1.5-2.5 oz pure maple syrup depending on your desired sweetness (Vermont gets all the press when it comes to maple syrup, but get some from New Hampshire if you can find it!)
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice (the pre-squeezed stuff is sufficient if squeezing it yourself isn't an option)
  • Wayward Gourmet Maple Chipotle Mashup spice blend

Here's how it's made:

  1. Use a small bit of maple syrup to coat the rim of your chilled glass
  2. Rim glass with Maple Chipotle Mashup spice blend by sprinkling about 2 tsp of blend onto a plate and placing glass upside down into blend.
  3. Pour liquid ingredients into a cold shaker with ice and shake vigorously (we recommend shaking it along to you favorite summer tunes.)
  4. Strain over rimmed glass full of ice, garnish with a slice of lime
  5. Serve (and drink) immediately!

Let us know how it turned out, we love to see your creations on Instagram #WaywardGourmet and Twitter @WaywardGourmet. Send em to us and we'll post your deliciousness on our site.
