CHOCOLATE MARGARITA Cocktail Recipe


You know eventually I had to do it. I am a serious chocoholic and I love margaritas and tequila. Yes, I finally had to do a chocolate margarita, if only so I could say I had a recipe for one when people asked.

I fell in love. I ended up making two more, one more than I should have, but they tasted so good! This is a beautifully complex, sophisticated take on a margarita.

The trick was in using Casa Noble Single Barrel Extra Añejo Tequila which has its own chocolate, nutty notes. I decided it would play better with the chocolate and orange liqueur combination than a blanco and I was correct. The Casa Noble was a perfect match for the rich chocolate flavors, the orange liqueur and the spiced rim. I'm very glad I splurged my sipping tequila on this particular cocktail.
