Halloween Margarita Ingredients
This witches brew drink is a neon green Midori margarita with classic margarita flavors and a sweet tart honeydew melon twist. Don't let this electric green margarita scare you off, I promise it's delicious!
- Midori liqueur - What is Midori? Midori is a sweet, bright green-colored liqueur that tastes like melon.
- Tequila - Any type of tequila will work well, but I use Blanco tequila for this spooky margarita.
- Tripe Sec - an orange-flavored liqueur that is typically used in margarita recipes.
- Simple syrup - a liquid sweetener. You can buy simple syrup in the store or easily make your own by dissolving one cup of sugar in one cup of hot water on the stove.
- Lime juice - fresh lime juice is best. Depending on the size of the lime, you need about one lime squeezed to equal the ½ ounce needed for this recipe.
- Edible glitter (optional, but a fun addition!) - This is the edible glitter I used to make this witches brew margarita pop!
- Black sugar (optional, but a fun addition!) - These are the black sugar sprinkles I used to coat the rim of the margarita glass.
How to Make a Halloween Margarita
This simple Midori margarita adds extra excitement to any happy hour, especially in October. All you need is a cocktail shaker and a margarita glass along with the margarita ingredients to get the party started.
Step 1: Add a black sugar rim to the margarita glass. To rim a margarita glass, moisten the rim with a wedge of lime then dip the glass into a shallow plate of black sugar sprinkles. These sprinkles add sweetness and visually make the drink truly look like a witch cocktail.
Step 2: Add ice to a cocktail shaker followed by Midori, tequila, triple sec, simple syrup, and freshly squeezed lime juice. Add a pinch of edible glitter, if using. Shake until drink is cold and mixed well, about 20 seconds. Pour into a glass and enjoy!
- For added creativity and spookiness, pour this beverage into a fun vessel like a stemmed skeleton glass or clear skull cup.
- Use a clear tequila, such as Blanco, so the green color stays vibrant.
- This Halloween margarita will naturally be green from the Midori, but you can throw in a pinch of green edible glitter to really make it pop! Just a pinch - a little goes a long way.
