Cherry Bomb Margarita

Cherry Bomb Margarita

Impress your guests with this Cherry Bomb Margarita. I take a classic margarita to the next level by adding a fresh cherry and mint ice cube. As you sip your cocktail, this oversized cube melts and your drink continues to evolve. The egg white adds a frothy creamy texture to this ultimate summer cocktail.

How to Create the Cherry Bomb

It’s July and cherries are in season so I thought why not incorporate them into my go-to cocktail, the classic margarita. In the summer ice cubes melt quickly which is why I love using flavored ice cubes in my cocktails. As the cube melts your drink continues to evolve! Feel free to substitute the cherries with blueberries, strawberries or blackberries.

Ice Cube Ingredients

  • 3 cups of cherries pits removed
  • 1/3 cup of mint simple syrup (click here for simple syrup recipe)
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • 1/2 tbs of lime juice

Special Equipment

large sphere silicon ice cube molds (buy here)

Combine all of the ingredients above in a high-speed blender. Pour the mixture into large sphere ice cubes molds. Place in the freezer for at least 12 hours.

Classic Margarita with a Twist

Adding egg to a margarita doesn’t sound like a logical choice, but believe me, you will love the frothy feel of shaken egg whites in this cocktail. The egg whites don’t change the flavor as much as they change the texture. It’s like the foam in your latte. Get it? Good now get shakin.

Cocktail Ingredients

  • 2 oz tequila blanco/silver
  • 1/2 lime juiced
  • 3/4 oz simple syrup
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 cup of ice

Add the first four ingredients to the cocktail shaker, close the shaker and shake vigorously by hand for 1 minute. This is called a dry shake. Open the shaker and add the ice. Close the shaker and shake for 30 seconds
