#MerlotForMay Recipe: Merlot Margarita

Not to be confused by Merlot with Margherita – which involves pizza! This Merlot “Margarita” is for tequila and wine lovers.



Pour the tequila, lime juice and simple syrup into a shaker filled with ice. Shake until chilled and pour into a glass of your choice.

Hold a spoon, backside up, at a 45 degrees angle closely over the surface and pour the Leopard’s Leap Merlot very slowly over the spoon until a wine layer of about 25 ml deep is formed on top of the margarita.

If you love Margaritas as much as we do, learn more about this classic cocktail and discover some new recipes on our Margarita Day article.

I love the splash of colour it brings when you pour the wine into the glass, and the recipe is nice and simple. ~ @MerlotGirl
