Notes

Helpful tips
  • Use at least mid level liquor when making this margarita as there is a taste difference.
  • When selecting a bag of cherries to take home, make sure to pick up the bag and look at the cherries on the bottom. If it is leaking juice, chances are there are crushed or rotten cherries in the bag. Either go for a different bag or dig out the rotten ones.
  • Whether choosing cherries in a bag or individually, lightly squeeze some of them to make sure they are firm.
  • I prefer my sour mix in a 2:1 ratio, so two parts sour to one part sweet. Start there and if you decide you want it sweeter, add more simple syrup either ¼ ounce to ½ ounce at a time, tasting as you go.
  • The more ice you use in the blender, the further you can stretch the margarita.
