Habanero Margarita – A fresh margarita is a transportive experience. Our Classic and Habanero Margarita Mixers put the journey in a bottle with just the right amount of satisfying spice. And to take it up a notch for Cinco de Mayo, we’re including a bottle of Hella Smoked Chilli Bitters.
Hella Smoked Chilli Bitters – The smoked chili’s we found for this formula are unlike anything we’ve tasted before. The bitters we crafted with them are satisfyingly spicy, rich, smoky and transportive, adding a know-not-what depth to your cocktails. Simply put, margaritas will never be the same.
A great recipe using the Habanero Margarita mix and Chili Bitters is:
This margarita variation harmonizes fresh herbs, smoked chili bitters and a dash of sparking grapefruit soda.
- 1 ½ oz Blanco Tequila
- 1 oz Hella Habanero Margarita
- 4 basil leaves
- 5 dashes Hella Smoked Chili Bitters
- Grapefruit Soda (we love Alta Palla)
- Basil Salt, for glass rim
- Wet the edge of a highball glass with your finger and a bit of Hella Habanero Margarita Mix. Dip into a plate of basil salt.
- Add 3 of the basil leaves to the bottom of a shaker and muddle gently.
- Fill your shaker with ice and add Tequila, Hella Habanero Margarita Mix and Hella Smoked Chili Bitters.
- Shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is frosted.
- Double-strain your cocktail over your basil salt-rimmed highball glass filled with fresh ice.
- Top with your choice of grapefruit soda and stir gently.
- Garnish with a basil leaf boat.
