Tennessee Margarita Instructions

The Tennessee Margarita is a unique twist on the classic margarita cocktail. Originating from the state of Tennessee, this cocktail combines the flavors of tequila and Tennessee whiskey to create a drink that is both smooth and full of character.

One of the key differences between a Tennessee Margarita and a regular margarita is the use of Tennessee whiskey instead of traditional triple sec. This substitution adds a touch of warmth and complexity to the cocktail, making it perfect for those who enjoy a more flavorful and robust drink.

To make a Tennessee Margarita, start by filling a cocktail shaker with ice. Add 2 ounces of tequila, 1 ounce of Tennessee whiskey, and the juice of one lime. Shake well to combine all the ingredients and chill the drink.

Next, prepare your glass by rimming it with salt. To do this, take a slice of lime and rub it along the edge of the glass. Dip the rim of the glass into a plate of salt, making sure to coat it evenly.

Once your glass is ready, strain the chilled cocktail into it. You can garnish the drink with a lime wedge or a slice of jalapeno, depending on your preference. Serve and enjoy!

Best served in a Old-Fashioned Glass.
