Spicy Margarita Cocktail

Let's add a little bit of spice to our fave Mexican cocktail. The #spicymarg has attained a bit of a cult-like appreciation across the world. We love a margarita as one sip can transport us to a sunny beach, where music plays and worries are few. Whether it's a sunny August day or a gloomy weeknight in Winter, this bev is a powerful mood-booster. 

While you really can choose whichever Tequila you prefer for this recipe, Silver or Blanco Tequila is our go-to. It has a milder flavour and blends super well in cocktails.

One thing that is mandatory however is the chilli salt rim - we know it’s a slightly messy step in cocktail making but it’s SO worth it. The chilli salt rim and a wedge of lime to garnish will have these cocktails totally insta-ready. Don’t forget to tag us in your creations @thebottleclub.
