Hello, Cinco de Mayo! I have found fresh salsa to be a great starter for all kinds of cocktails. It has so many delicious ingredients already in it, so all you need to do is add your favorite spirit and a couple other items depending on your taste and mood. These margaritas use Garden Fresh Gourmet® Mango Peach Salsa as the base and frozen peaches are blended in with a little honey along with tequila for a refreshing and just-a-bit-sweet cocktail. The salsa has tomato in it, yet don't let the color fool you. The peach for this cocktail really is the star.
Makes 6 8 oz. servings.
- 1 16 oz. container Garden Fresh Gourmet® Mango Peach Salsa
- 1/3 cup honey
- 10 oz. white tequila
- 3 cups frozen peaches (1 16 oz. bag)
- 2 cups ice
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
- ¼ teaspoon chili powder
- 1 fresh lime cut into thin discs
Add the salsa, honey and tequila to a blender and blend about 20-30 seconds. Add the peaches and ice and blend again until smooth, 45 seconds to 1 minute. Transfer to a pitcher for serving.
Mix together the sugar, salt and chili powder on a small plate. Run a wet ice cube around the rims of 8 oz. cocktail glasses and dip them into the sugar-salt mixture.
Pour the margaritas into the glasses. Garnish each with a lime disc.
