Do Halloween right...

Spooky and simple, this is a classic margarita recipe made with 1800 silver tequila, fresh lime juice, Cointreau, and some tweaks to get the color just right. Also- I did not end up with purple teeth after case you were worried. I also love the way the sugar rim looks like crushed amethyst. Fun drink!

Look for black or dark purple decorating sugar, if you can't find it, add sugar to a baggie and squish it around with food coloring to achieve the color you want.

Notes: Tequila is 1800 Tequila- Silver.


Ingredients: black sugar-salt, 1 1/2 ounces silver tequila, 1 ounce Cointreau, 1 tbsp. agave nectar, juice of 1/2 lime, 1/2 ounce red wine, black food coloring (or red/purple/brown).

Makes 1.

1. Make sugar-salt rim: Add 1 tbsp black sugar and 1 tsp. sea salt in a small bowl. Run a piece of cut lime around the rim of the glass. Dip generously into the sugar-salt. Fill the glass with crushed ice.

2. Into a shaker, add ice, tequila, Cointreau, and agave. Set aside.

2. Squeeze lime into a small bowl or measuring cup. Dye to a dark purple-black color. Add to shaker. Shake it up!

3. Pour contents of shaker over into glass, garnish with a lime wedge.
