Margarita Variations

The Margamenta

You are Margarita’d out. Here’s a combination that any Dr. Jack Certified Clinician will be able to handle.


2 Parts Blanco Tequila (here, Casa Nobles)3/4 Part Curacao (Senior Curacao, if possible)

1/2 Part Fresh Lemon Juice

Fresh mint leaves

Muddle the mint as you would for a Mojito, add the Curacao to the Mortar. Stir until the mint is assimilated into the Curacao. Strain this mix into a shaker filled with ice, add tequila and the lemon juice. Shake it like Charo. Strain into Martini glass, garnish with Lemon wheel and sprig of mint.

Not only does this multi-flavored drink break up the Margarita routine, the mint will help sooth your stomach after too many enchiladas.

The Bajan Margarita.

Just ask your Better Boozing Clinician (bartender) to use John Taylor’s Velvet Falernum instead of triple sec, Cointreau or Grand Marnier in your 5/5 cocktail.

The hints of almond and cloves in the Falernum will make you wonder if you don’t want all your Margaritas made this way.

Health benefits? Falernum is definitely a small batch booze (better quality) and the fresh juices, plus it tastes great — and doesn’t that make you feel much better?
