Devil’s Margarita

The Devil’s Margarita is an easy-layered Halloween cocktail. Tequila and wine combine to create a tasty twist on a classic cocktail. The recipe calls for a Blanco Tequila, which gives citrus and pepper notes. And using simple syrup instead of Agave syrup allows the other ingredients to shine. The Devil’s Margarita also takes a page from the Whiskey Sour by layering some red wine on top to get a unique flavour.   Try it out and let me know what you think.
