Tell Me More About Exotico Tequila

Exotico Tequila is a premium tequila, crafted in the region of Jalisco, Mexico by a four-generation family distillery – known as one of Mexico’s most respected tequila makers. For this recipe, I incorporated the award-winning, Exotico Blanco Tequila which includes unique flavor notes. It’s clear, crisp, and herbal with spicy undertones, hints of fresh agave, and pepper for a beautifully balanced spirit. 

Grab your bottle of Exotico Tequila Blanco here and add Exotico Blanco Tequila to all your favorite tequila-based cocktails like this Beet Ginger Margarita!

Ingredients for the Beet Ginger Margarita

  • Exotico Blanco Tequila: This premium, unaged 100% agave tequila includes herbal notes with spicy undertones and a robust taste of fresh agave with hints of pepper. Perfect for sipping solo or adding it to your mixed drink to elevate it!
  • Beet orange juice: You can either make your own beet orange juice. I like this homemade recipe here. Or pick some up at your local grocery store or juice bar. For this recipe, I used Natalie’s Orange Beet Juice
  • Ginger liqueur: I used Domaine De Canton, but if you don’t have ginger liqueur you can substitute it with orange liqueur or it can be eliminated. If eliminating it, add more honey syrup to get your desired sweetness.
  • Honey syrup: to create your honey syrup, add equal parts of your preferred brand of honey, I used Local Hive Honey and hot water. Stir the mixture well. 
  • Lime juice: Fresh squeezed is always best! I used the juice from 2 limes for a fresh and citrusy addition. 
  • Flake sea salt, and lime zest: For the rim, combine sea salt (I used Maldon Sea Salt Flakes) and the zest from one lime. 
  • Lime slices, orange slices: top this cocktail with lime and orange slices for a pop of color.

How to Make the Beet Ginger Margarita

Time to make the Beet Ginger Margarita! Start by preparing 2 glasses (I used these gold-rimmed drinking glasses) with a sea salt and lime zest rim. To do this, you’ll zest 1 lime onto a shallow dish and add 1 teaspoon of sea salt and combine. Wet the rim of 2 cocktail glasses with lime juice, and dip the glasses into the sea salt and lime zest mixture until the rim is coated. 

Once the glasses are prepped, you can start on the cocktail. Add Exotico Blanco Tequila, beet orange juice, ginger liqueur, honey syrup, and lime juice into a cocktail shaker with ice, and shake until the outside is chilled. Next, fill the prepared cocktail glasses with ice and strain the cocktail mixture into the glasses. If desired, garnish with lime and orange slices.
