Inspired by our Austin-based pal and fellow badass creative entrepreneur Victoria McAbee, this cocktail is refreshing, unique and packs a punch.
TRUST US when we say that pickled jalapeño definitely belongs in a margarita. When we asked Victoria McAbee of Whimsy Official and Studio Amie what flavours she would like in her customized cocktail, we got SO excited for the opportunity to create one of our fave libations with a spicy twist. This margarita is packed with fresh, flavourful mint, and gets its kick from pickled jalapeños and a chilli-salt rim. Alright, enough gabbin’, let’s make some cocktails!
