Margarita lovers can now celebrate Halloween by adding a bit of black magic to their favorite drink. We’ve used silver tequila and swapped Triple sec with orange extract to reduce this drink’s carb content. Lime juice, mint leaves, and ice make this drink as refreshing as it is exciting. Not to mention that it’s eerie appearance will spook everyone this fall season.

Tips & Tricks
- If you like using gold tequila for your margaritas, feel free to do so. Gold tequila has a smoother taste that a lot of people expect in their margaritas.
- Also, feel free to shake the margarita mixture before serving if you love the frothy and cloudy appearance of true margarita.
- Some say it’s best to squeeze lime juice up to 10 hours before making margaritas to remove the harsh tanginess and preserve lime flavor.
