Muddled Cherry Margaritas

We kind of like margaritas on the patio around here in the summer. We like them just a little bit.

And as much as we do love our margaritas sometimes changing them up a bit sounds good too. 

We had found these lovely local Rainier cherries at our farmers market and decided to try muddling them into a margarita to change it up a bit. We also love muddled mint into our mojitos so muddling cherries into a margarita sounded like something worth trying.

The result was sweet, sour and refreshing.


Muddled Cherry Margarita
Cut lime
2 ounces tequila
1/2 ounce Triple Sec
1/2 ounce Grenadine
3 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 Cup cherries, pitted and cut in half
3 or 4 ice cubes

Rub the rim of a cocktail glass with lime, then dip in salt to frost. Muddle cut cherries with lime and ice. Combine remaining ingredients in a mixing glass and stir well. Strain into the prepared cocktail glass.
