Looking for a few creative cocktail recipes for your St. Paddy’s Day celebrations? You’ve come to the right place! Here are a few ideas for something other than green beer, from our friends at Perfect Puree.
Key Lime Margarita
  • 1½ oz. tequila
  • ¾ oz. triple sec

  • 1/4 oz. or 1 ½ tsp. simple syrup
  • 1 wedge key lime (use a regular lime if a key lime is not available)

Rub the rim of a rocks or a chilled martini glass with the key lime wedge then dredge in kosher salt to coat the rim. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add in tequila, triple sec, Key Lime Concentrate, and simple syrup. Shake well. Pour the liquor mixture through the cocktail shaker strainer into the prepared rocks glass filled with ice or in the chilled prepared martini glass.
