Where's @Allischaaff? Is she here? And where are the other New Yorkers? Is it true that New York's been on the cocktail flight thing for a while? I just read an article in The New Yorker that pretty much rolled its eyes at LA because New York's been doing it since the 2000s and didn't come into vogue until the 2010s. Here it is pushing 2016 and it turns out LA is a smidge behind the whole cocktail flight thing. (Insert sad face here)

LOOK WHAT WE'RE MAKING!

Spicy Grapefruit Margarita

2 ounces grapefruit juice
1/2 ounce Camarena Silver tequila
1/2 ounce orange liqueur
1 splash agave
juice of half a lime
1-2 pinches of cayenne pepper
In a shaker with ice, combine all ingredients. If you like things a little spicy, use one pinch of cayenne, and for a little more heat add two pinches! Shake and serve in a salted rim glass. Garnish with a wedge of grapefruit.

ON TO THE NEXT ONE...

Lavender Coconut Margarita

2 ounces coconut milk
1/2 ounce Camarena Silver tequila
1/2 ounce orange liqueur
juice of half a lime
1 tablespoon lavender simple syrup (Click here to learn how to make your own)
In a shaker with ice, combine all ingredients. Shake and serve in a salted rim glass. Garnish with a fresh lavender leaf.

ON TO THE FINAL FLIGHT...

Blood Orange Margarita

2 ounces blood orange juice
1/2 ounce Camarena Silver tequila
1/2 ounce orange liqueur
1 splash agave
juice of half a lime
In a shaker with ice, combine all ingredients. Shake and serve in a salted rim glass. Garnish with a blood orange slice.

TIME TO TASTE...

Make sure that you're not just making these. By that, I mean, make them LOOK SO #STUNNING that every word you use on social media follows a hashtag! Catch my drift?!
If you make and take this flight, please let me know how much you did or didn't like it. I want to do this, this weekend!
In the meantime, did you notice that there are 45 cards listed under "margarita" in the search?! That's more than a month's supply of ideas and recipes. Click here to see what I'm talking about!

OH. MY. GOD. @marshalledgar I could sing right now, I'm so excited by the idea of these gorgeous margaritas. WHY HAVE I NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE??? This is such an awesome idea for a get together with friends, too! Make enough of all of them for everyone to have a taste, then... you get a full glass (or two) of your favorite ;D love that mason jar cocktail shaker, and those eensy glasses look stunning with that large grain rock salt! :D All in all, marshalledgar you know me too well <3
