When it’s hot out, nothing tastes better than a bright, citrusy Margarita. But who has the energy to squeeze all those limes? Luckily for the lazy among us, Volcán De Mi Tierra Tequila has come to the rescue with a new made-in-Canada Margarita pre-mix designed to perfectly complement the tequila’s citrus, cherry and white pepper flavours.
The pre-mix was developed with Montreal-based Alambika, a company that sells cocktail gear, including shrubs, syrups, bitters, bottled cocktails and cocktail kits (alambika.ca).
Simply mix 2 oz Volcán tequila with 1 oz of the Margarita pre-mix syrup and 1 oz water in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain over ice in a rocks glass. If you like, rim the glass with salt. Or not.
And there you go, the perfect Margarita every time. The Margarita premix is available for a limited time at BC Liquor Stores alongside bottles of Volcan Blanco, $74.99. volcan.com
