I don’t know about you, but I’m slowly coming out of the holiday haze. To ease back into the regular work week, I’m sharing a cocktail that I’ve been enjoying over the holidays.
Yes, I know this really isn’t a standard winter cocktail, but then why be standard when I can just enjoy what I like?
As I have mentioned before, fruit is a big thing in my house and being in Southern California, we have access to some of the best almost year-round. Strawberries and mango being a few of those things, so to kick those two things up a notch, I went for a spicy kick and added some Ancho Chiles into the margarita you see here. It pairs extremely well with a good tequila and gives it just the right amount of bite.
Enjoy and Happy New Year!
