The High Desert Hitter - Honey Agave Margarita

By Eric Liddle


This summer we teamed up with Camarena Tequila to create the Reach for Adventure capsule collection. With daily winners and a grand prize sending people on a surprise trip, there’s a lot to be excited about.

But since we made a ton of great gear and not EVERYONE wins, we figured we might as well throw in our favorite margarita recipe to do justice. Next time you’re headed out for a weekend escape or navigating the 4:55pm slip, give this one a go.

With Reno getting warmer and our farming neighbors starting to plant drought resistant crops like Agave, we decided to mix in a little home town flavor into this high desert cocktail. Introducing The Honey Agave Margarita.

Mix one up and let us know what you think.

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces Camarena Silver tequila - Or 3 if you’re into it
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice plus a wedge 
  • 1 ounce light agave nectar (Here’s how you make your own)
  • 1 tablespoon local honey
  • Ice
  • Salt for the rim of the glass

Instructions

Add the agave nectar, lime juice and honey to a DESO x Camarena cocktail shaker and stir to combine the ingredients. It’s important to do this first so you get a good distribution of flavor (if you’re adding some heat from a jalapeno, this is the time). Next, add your tequila and ice and shake things up. Round things out by straining the liquid into a salt-rimmed glass with a lime wedge and get the party started.
