The Rio Grande Margarita with Hook’s Tacos Everyday for Hook’s Rub Thirsty Thursday


The Rio Grande Margarita with Hook’s Tacos Everyday

On the border between Texas and Mexico is The Rio Grande (or Rio Bravo del Norte in Mexico). Running for over 1800 miles, it is indeed a “Big River!” We’ve paid homage to this River that connects Texas to Mexico with a Hornitos Tequila margarita that promises to be big on refreshing flavor, but is a cinch to make. We threw these down for Cinco De Mayo, but honestly, you can make these any day of the year. These were served along side some pork and pineapple al pastor tacos. Here’s that easy drink recipe along with a tasty kids version!

 Equipment:

  • Glass of any shape. We like these sleek highball glasses. 
  • Cocktail Shaker
  • Cocktail Jigger
  • Muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon
  • Sharp Knife & cutting board 
  • A Plate or Salt Rimmer

Ingredients:

  • Hook’s Rub Tacos Everyday Rub
  • Hornitos Reposado Tequila 
  • Grand Marnier Orange Liqueur (or any other Triple Sec)
  • Finest Call Sweet & Sour Mix
  • Orange Juice (for non-alcohol/kids version)
  • Fresh Lime Juice
  • Cara Cara Orange (or just a navel orange slices)
  • Lime (sliced and wedges)
  • Jalapeños (sliced)

Method:
(Adult/Alcohol)
1. Rim a frosted glass with Hook’s Tacos Everyday (or kosher salt) and set aside
2. In an shaker tin combine:⠀
2 oz Hornitos Tequila
2 oz Grand Marnier or triple sec
6 oz Sweet & Sour⠀
Squeeze of lime juice
2x lime wedges
1x slice of orange 
2-4 slices of Jalapeño ⠀
3. Using the flat end of the muddler or the end of the wooden spoon handle, squish ingredients for a bit to unlock the flavors and oils in the skin of the fruit and jalapeños. 
4. Add crushed ice and shake it all together until you have a little froth at the top!⠀
5. Pour into the glass making sure to miss the edges
6. Garnish with a slice of jalapeño, orange & lime
7. Enjoy responsibly for those 21 years old or older.
