Green Chile Margarita

Cinco de Mayo Green Chile MargaritaCinco de Mayo is next week… you know I couldn’t let it pass without posting a Margarita recipe!  Like I’ve said before, margaritas are a staple here in Texas and Cinco de Mayo is just another excuse to enjoy this delicious cocktail. This year, I’ve added a special twist to the classic. I’ve made a green chile margarita and instead of using tequila… I’ve used vodka instead!

I first tried this vodka on a trip to San Francisco when I visited their distillery. We had a tasting of their different spirits and in the end my cousin bought a couple different bottles to take back to her place which was where we first made the green chile margarita. By the way- they also recommend this vodka in bloody mary’s. I have yet to try it but I can imagine it taste great.
