Cinco De Mayo Margarita

In honor of Cinco De Mayo here is a good Margarita recipe.


  • 3 oz Patron Tequila
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 1.5 oz Lime Juice
  • 1/2 oz Honey Syrup (recipe below)
  • 1/8 tsp Arbol Chile Tincture (recipe below)


Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake. Pour over ice in your favorite glass.

Honey Syrup:

  • 1 Cup Raw Honey
  • 1 Cup Boiling Water

Remove water from stove and place 1 cup in a mason jar, mix in 1 cup of honey and allow to cool.

Arbol Chile Tincture

  • 20 Arbol Chiles
  • 1 3/4 Cups Everclear

Combine ingredients in a pint sized mason jar. Place lid on jar. Let sit two weeks, shaking vigorously for 5-10 seconds every day.

You can make this drink without the Arbol Chile Tincture, it just adds a nice kick to it.

Just a regular guy who loves to barbeque. Married father of two. I developed a love for grilling as a child watching my dad grill. My love for BBQ, using wood and the "low & slow" method came after I purchased my first horizontal smoker in my 20's.
