A refreshingly sweet Raspberry Rhubarb Margarita recipe.
Happy Cinco de Mayo, y’all! I know it’s not a ‘real’ holiday, but I love it.
I will make no apologies – it’s one of my favorite days. Here’s some evidence – pineapple guacamole IN an actual pineapple. I’m not sure that I’ll ever be able to top that. Really.
It’s also Tim’s birthday, so it’s extra special.
And now I love it even more because this Raspberry Rhubarb Margarita is ON POINT. A little sweet, a little tart, and a lot delicious. It’s got it all – fresh fruit, fresh vegetables (rhubarb is a veggie – how weird is that?), and an easy make-at-home simple syrup to give it a little something extra.
Raspberry Rhubarb Margarita Recipe
Before we dive into the recipe, I have to share a funny story with you.
I obviously wanted to get this up in time for Cinco de Mayo because margs are a must on the fifth of May. SO, to shoot and edit in time, I actually recipe tested and shook up this batch of Raspberry Rhubarb Margaritas at 7:30 am. I took extremely small sips, because tequila at 7:30 am isn’t my go-to. BUT, I still have to try it to make sure it’s good, you know?
- 5 parts fresh raspberries
- 3 parts tequila
- 1 part lime juice
- 1 part rhubarb simple syrup
- Rhubarb Simple Syrup:
- 2 rhubarb stalks, chopped
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- Make your Rhubarb Simple Syrup by stirring together sugar and water over medium heat until dissolved. Add your rhubarb and let cool.
- Muddle raspberries in a shaker with lime juice and rhubarb simple syrup.
- Add tequila and ice.
- Shake for 15 seconds.
- Pour into glasses and top off with ice.
- Garnish with rhubarb.
I just love margaritas so much. Well, I suppose you can easily tell because I’ve shared margaritas two Fridays in a row. I, personally, see no problem with this. Last week it was the Strawberry Rose Margarita, and well – you know this week’s because here you are! To avoid the tequila run, I ordered mine from Drizly, which made this marg even better – the booze was delivered right to my door!
Any new favorite marg recipes on your list? I always love a good tropical marg, and the Coco at Loco Taqueria here in Boston is to die for. Honestly, it’s divine. It even has coconut on the rim of the glass, so clearly it’s legit.
